Tom Scott Announces Avantdale Bowling Club Exhibition

Friday 3rd August, 2018 9:00AM

Aotearoa hip hop figurehead Tom Scott's new project Avantdale Bowling Club dropped 'Years Gone By', the lead single to their self-titled debut album to huge acclaim last week. The expansive track casts the artist's reflective words on growing up in Avondale against an expressive jazz-tinged backdrop featuring the next-level skills of Julien Dyne, Guy Harrison, Tom Dennison, Mara TK, Ben McNicoll and JY Jong-Yun Lee. Scott has now revealed the latest facet of his multi-layered project, an exhibition created in partnership with Red Bull Music presenting images of the suburb which inspired his new album by photographers Luca Macioce and Tak Soropa, alongside a selection of works interpreting each track from the record by painter / illustrator JacobYikes. The show is to take place at Central Auckland's CorpStudio and will also host DJ sets and feature limited edition A.B.C. merchandise for you to cop, all within a span of three days in mid-August.

Humbly described by Tom Scott as “irrelevant jazz from an island nation off the coast of Antarctica," the debut Avantdale Bowling Club album is due out on the day of the exhibition launch in a mere two weeks. More killer artists who contributed their talents to the all-star affair include Christoph El Truento, Haz Beats, Teeks, Finn Scholes, Cory Champion, Isaac Aesili, John Bell and Jeremy Toy. Here are the exhibition details...
