For one feel good night only we have pulled together a special selection of artists to raise money for an incredible gender-affirming cause. With a carefully curated line-up that ranges from bubblegum pop to folk punk and featuring a not to be missed drag performance from the man of the hour Jay aka King James, there is sure to be a little something for everybody at Pop the Tops!

Some words from Jay:
"My name is Jay and I am a proudly trans-masculine individual. I've struggled with my gender identity for some time, but one thing I've been certain about is that having a flat chest would make me feel much more comfortable in my own skin. Being trans is beautiful, and having the autonomy to take control of your body and your health is a privilege and an incredible thing to celebrate.”

The proceeds from this fabulous event will be donated to Jay for their Top Surgery, so come on down and party ‘til the top pops!


Bursting with melodies of zest-drenched melancholy, BEING. is the indie-pop project of New Zealand based songwriter Jasmine Balmer. Known for her dynamic live performances, BEING. interweaves illustrative lyric and a 90’s guitar-pop aesthetic, with vibrant arrangements ranging from full-band to solo expressions. The music of BEING. has been aptly described as crushingly tender, open-hearted indie pop, with clear-eyed lyrics pressed through tumbling guitars and the magnetic vocal tone of Balmer.

Finn Johansson
Finn Johansson writes self-described “feelings music” akin to the colour of the back of your eyelids when you’re kissing or breathing in an exhale or the pinching feeling of hope just before you have your heart broken. His songs are full of curiosity; ambitious arrangements with frayed edges, lo-fi bedroom recordings with the incisive precision of an astute musical ear. Overarchingly they are natural, full of the non-sequiturs associated with raw love and pain. Johansson has a skill for parsing back experiences to their most potent elements, and gently handing them over with his lilting falsetto.

Hannah Morrell

Jason Parker
Introducing Jason Parker, the radiant musical sensation whose pop-perfect vocals, enrapturing lyrics, and electric performances have captured hearts around Aotearoa and beyond. In Parker's live shows he is joy personified, uplifting and inspiring audiences. His charismatic personality and camp fashion sense captivate fans, while his irresistible melodies keep them dancing all night.
