Gig Information

Wellington Art-Rock quintet Sheeps announce a last-minute headline show with support from London-based Wellington-expats Sparkling Duet.


It's been some time since Wellington's Sheeps have taken the stage, after spending the latter half of 2019 working on their debut album with respected sound engineer/producer James Goldsmith. Consisting of guitarists Dean Blackwell (ex-Polter), Simon Blackwell, & Grace Baker, bassist Blain Fitzpatrick (King Oyster, Laniakea, ex-Funkacybin) & drummer Thomas Friggens (ex-Brockaflower, ex-John The Baptist, Seamouse). Sheeps take their cues from a wide variety of influences: from the tortured falsetto of Radiohead's Thom Yorke, to the tribal tom grooves of Tool's Danny Carey, the intricate finger-picking of Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt, and the dense, textural soundscapes of Post-Rock bands like Jakob & Mogwai.

Sparkling Duet + 1

Sparkling Duet is one of several projects formed by Wellington expats Shaun Blackwell (Night Shades, Haxon, ex-Fly My Pretties, ex-John The Baptist) and Clare McNamara (Night Shades, Haxon). Eschewing the raucous punk energy of Night Shades and the dark weirdness of Haxon, the pair's third creative outlet is a vessel for their shared love of the Surf Rock instrumental. Usually performing as a duo, they will be joined on this show by drummer .

Please note that this is an early show.
Set times will be strictly adhered to.
