Gig Information

Sound artist Kingsley Spargo’s broad sound palette both captivates and confronts his audience. Drawing across theatre, free improvised and contemporary music his most recent compositions include narratives of yearning and the geometry of life. No stranger to the stage, he has delighted audiences alongside Don McGlashan, SJD, Eve de Castro Robinson, Tim Finn, Violent Femmes and Witi Ihimaera. Doors 7.30pm, BYO Venue, glasses provided.

Poet Kim Meredith shouts of epochs in the 21st century, the daughter of a failed migrant farmer with Hollywood dreams manifesting in popcorn love, she calls on her ancestors to bring her complex modern tales to the stage.

Neil Watson's ubiquitous style can be heard with a disparate array of artists including Tami Neilson, The Finn Brothers, through to jazz artists such as Michael Brecker and Mike Nock. With Kingsley Spargo he comes into his own with a distinctive weave on the pedal steel.

Ever the musical anarchist, bass man Chris Orange’s pedigree spans the golden era of ‘70’s Auckland punk (Terrorways, The Features) to free jazz in Japan, and here he adds texture, colour and a sense of lightness to the heavy themes of a 21st century conversation.
