Tom Scott Announces Avantdale Bowling Club Exhibition

Friday 3rd August, 2018 9:00AM

Aotearoa hip hop figurehead Tom Scott's new project Avantdale Bowling Club dropped 'Years Gone By', the lead single to their self-titled debut album to huge acclaim last week. The expansive track casts the artist's reflective words on growing up in Avondale against an expressive jazz-tinged backdrop featuring the next-level skills of Julien Dyne, Guy Harrison, Tom Dennison, Mara TK, Ben McNicoll and JY Jong-Yun Lee. Scott has now revealed the latest facet of his multi-layered project, an exhibition created in partnership with Red Bull Music presenting images of the suburb which inspired his new album by photographers Luca Macioce and Tak Soropa, alongside a selection of works interpreting each track from the record by painter / illustrator JacobYikes. The show is to take place at Central Auckland's CorpStudio and will also host DJ sets and feature limited edition A.B.C. merchandise for you to cop, all within a span of three days in mid-August.

Humbly described by Tom Scott as â€œirrelevant jazz from an island nation off the coast of Antarctica," the debut Avantdale Bowling Club album is due out on the day of the exhibition launch in a mere two weeks. More killer artists who contributed their talents to the all-star affair include Christoph El Truento, Haz Beats, Teeks, Finn Scholes, Cory Champion, Isaac Aesili, John Bell and Jeremy Toy. Here are the exhibition details...
