Gig starts: 9.00pm
Entry: R18

Cover charge: $10

Three unique and diverse acts hit the stage at Moon in Newtown in Wellington for one night only.

The line up includes:

Wellington indie pianist and synth slayer, Nicole Andrews, whose style is reminiscent of Tori Amos and PJ Harvey. Her debut album, In the Shallows was described by The Listener Magazine as “all rolling piano and rich, epically angst-ridden vocals.”

Dunedin musician Nick Knox whose style can be described as Nick Cave meets Rammstein, and who was the subject of a BBC funded documentary “The Characteristics of C-Minor” (2014). Nick’s sound is at once gruff, delicate, and soulful, laced with baroque sensibilities.

Originally formed in Dunedin, Grawlixes are a folk-pop duo consisting of Penelope Esplin (accordion and vocals) and Robin Cederman (guitar and vocals). They are now based in Wellington and are getting ready to release their debut album through Home Alone Records (February 2017).

8pm at Moon, Newtown, Wellington
$10 entry

Nicole Andrews - Listener Magazine album review:
“It’s tough to shift the Tori Amos comparisons for Portland-raised, now Wellington based Nicole Andrews - all rolling piano and rich, epically angst-ridden vocals. The powerful string-backed Pixelated Roses, with its anger, ashes and warning to “run and hide,” is a highlight, but for those who like their femininity fierce and fearless the pace doesn’t drop until Andrews calls Time at the end.”

Nick Knox - Bill Morris’s Review:
Nick’s music is thrilling, strange and utterly unique. Imagine Rammstein’s tour bus, with a troupe of Tibetan throat singers on board, crashing into the middle of a Bach recital and you can begin to imagine the sound.”
