Gig Information

On this day in Music History:
1957: Elvis Presley released the single Jailhouse Rock.
1966: Jimi Hendrix arrived in London, having changed his first name from “Jimmy” to “Jimi” on the flight over.
1977: Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours was No. 1 for a record 20th week (it wasn't finished yet).
1991: Nirvana released the album Nevermind.
2020: Sheeps, Secrets of the Sun, and End Boss performed blinding, life-changing sets at Wellington’s Valhalla Tavern.

Sheeps
Sheeps are not rock traditionalists. They are experimentalists. Odd time signatures, lush ambient passages, and soaring crescendos are the hallmarks of their sound. Their compositions are complex. Their songs, sprawling. Their music is at once obscure and immediate, foreign and familiar—they have something to say and they want you to listen.
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 Jakob & Mogwai.

Secrets of the Sun
Hailing from Wellington, Secrets of the Sun have charmed with their dark, ethereal melodies and heavy soundscapes. Refusing to be held down to one genre, Secrets of the Sun use their music as an opportunity to explore sounds and styles with inspiration from a multitude of sources. The band have ventured on from their earlier ethereal Shoegaze sound to a darker Doom Rock sound.

End Boss
A new force in heavy music has emerged from Wellington's sludgy depths. Combining the otherworldly vocal talents of E.J. Thorpe, veteran Ghidoragh members Greg Broadmore and Christian Pearce's down-tuned twin axe attack, and Beastwars drummer Nato's pulse-pounding rhythmic intensity, End Boss delivers crunchy, riff-packed epicness into your ears and straight to your brain.
