PRESS RELEASE (of sorts):

Ooooh la la! Last in New Zealand many moons ago as trumpet player for Scottish indie-loves Camera Obscura, France's favourite son Francois has since been honing his own craft, signing to Domino Records, releasing a handful of utterly delightful of albums, and gadding about with his Atlas Mountains.

Now, finally, New Zealand is getting a little taste of the good stuff! Here for a short visit, you can catch FrÓnšois and The Atlas Mountains live at last.

Tickets for the club shows are available from UTR and on the door, and if you wanna see them at Chrony - get a ticket to that!
