Gig Information

As the festival on the street winds down, the party on the Moon gears up!

Join us with live performances from OdESSA and Mana Mushroom and a DJ set from The Good Taste Selector before the bands start at 7:30pm

OdESSA have a solid reputation as one of New Zealand’s most exciting live bands. Their addictive blend of Rock RnB, electrifying grooves and phenomenal energy are sure to grab your attention. They kick along the dusty centre-line where Rock ‘n’ Roll and R ‘n’ B first cross-mutated, with memorable songs played inside out – night after night.

OdESSA is a fluid and inventive rhythm section, with searing licks and dirty guitar grooves, polished off with strong, soulful vocals – playing wild to hot, sweaty crowds going crazy in a heady swirl of streetlights and hormones – exactly the way it’s supposed to be. The 2021 edition has the addition of a horn section and keyboards.

The warmth and excitement generated by OdESSA has been the source of inspiration for an awesome and supportive fan base across the New Zealand.

Mana Mushroom:
Callum Worsley, Blain Fitzpatrick and Levon Mason work their magic with this psychedelic recipe of progressive rock/instrumental shoegaze. Born out of the Wellington underground scene their sound draws influences from the likes of 'Jakob', 'Explosions in the Sky' and 'King Crimson'.

The live show can be described as a raw and emotive as their songs truly come alive on stage! The band released their debut record in 2023 which has been gaining traction in the prog/riff scenes. Prepare to lose yourself among the swirling guitars or perhaps catch a mighty wave on the bass swells, there is something for everyone here!

The Good Taste Selector - Te Kupu (UHP/Tū Crucial Soundsystem) gives you a thick slice of Funk and some deep cuts from his stack of party tunes to tide you over from 6pm until the bands start.
