Gig Information

Jay Clarkson’s experience in NZ’s alternative music scene covers 3+ decades. As a member of The Playthings she did countless gigs at Christchurch's famed Gladstone Hotel in the early 80s. Having linked up with Flying Nun she went on to perform and record her distinctive songs around NZ in bands The Expendables, Breathing Cage, various duos and solo. The Containers formed 5 years ago. Leather Jacket Records, who released a 5 track 12” Playthings EP last year with great success has now released a 7” vinyl of 2 Containers’ songs described as psychedelic acid: Children of the Rule & Waikouaiti, available at Relics and other discerning record stores. Videos for both songs are up on youTube. Nazir Norono and Tenzin Mullin make up the Spur Line (a nod to Jay's 2016 solo album (vinyl and digital) SPUR.

Opening the evening will be STEEP STREET.

Named after a local paper road, Steep Street have been playing together since last year and are currently recording an album for release in late 2024/early 2025. Songs, written by Harold, blend elements of alt-folk and country, with a heart laid bare (and a nod to the Dunedin sound). Telling Tales was a solo release from Harold in 2018 available on usual digital platforms. Bass player Bridget, also a songwriter, performs under the name Swingbridge and has released several previous albums. Steep Street have played a few small/private gigs around town, but this is their first major foray into the limelight. Band members are Harold Bernhardt vocals/guitar, Alan McCulloch mandolin/violin, Bridget Ellis bass/vocals and Allen Frazer drums.
