There's a nightingale loose in the Rabbit's warren - the air tremors with its song - and the deeper one goes the larger the room seems. Step, sip, song; one after another, curioser and curioser each time...

Fresh off the winds of a national tour supporting her No. 1 album, 'Water Or Gold', the enchanting songstress Hollie Smith is visiting the newest piece of Victoria Park Market's history, the White Rabbit On The Park, to spread her wings and shake off the dust from your soul. Bring your Brothers, Friends, Lovers to Bathe In The River of Aotearoa's most textural, soaring soul vocalist.

Joining her is Elizabeth Stokes, principal vocalist and songwriter for The Beths, Auckland sandy spaceships that sound like Weezer fronted by Julia Deans and feel like lying in the sun in your backyard in Kingsland, half-drunk off your flatmate's forgotten wine, patting a beautiful happy Golden Lab and being ignored by your crush on Facebook.

Then Alae will carry us through the evening, two men too handsome to sound as good as all your favourite beautiful, ugly, crazy folk heroes. For fans of The Tallest Man On Earth, Frightened Rabbit, Shakey Graves, and drinking grain whiskey on the porch in Ramarama that your grandfather built after he was laid off from Fletcher Construction in the late '50s.

Rounding us out is the legendary DJ Lo Key, of Base FM, who you may know from Base FM and also from influencing virtually every current gigging New Zealand DJ worth their needles. All Killer, No Filler; beats that weigh a ton but don't cost a thing.

Supplementary to the sound, The White Rabbit will be awash with art for the evening, with works and installations from local and international surprise artists beamed onto ceilings and hung Off The Wall(s). Cocktail specials all night long compliments of Smirnoff Vodka and our award-winning mixologists; and world-class canapés and platters to feed the fire (and your friends).

Join us for a celebration of the senses. Let's wage war on reality, fit forever into an evening, and briefly go mad at The White Rabbit On The Park: it's ok, all the best people are.
