Rising from Rock Quest infamy all the way back in 2009, Sewage will be bringing bringing the noise to venues across Te Wai Pounamu on a special four date autumn tour, brought to you by Aotearoa's enablers of sonic experimentalism the Audio Foundation. Now based on both sides of the Cook Strait, the duo of Ro Rushton-Green (Superstarz, Shape of a Mouth) and Gabriel Griffin (Bus Stop Boys, Swallows Nest) currently galvanise aurally adventurous scenes in Tāmaki Makaurau and Ōtepoti respectively. They'll be joined on their travels by a bevy of local heroes, including Jeff Henderson’s Charming Clarinet and Aotearoa Snuff Jazz Septet – grip the details here...

UPDATE 19/03/20: Sewage are postponing their March tour – you can support the artists by copping their stylish hand-printed shirts here.

Press release:

Audio Foundation is pleased to announce a South Island Tour by the electrifying duo of Ro Rushton- Green (saxes/violin/vocals) and Gabriel Griffin (drums) known collectively as SEWAGE.

Sewage first gained notoriety in 2009 after winning the Otago Rockquest, facing petty public criticisms by members of loser bands upset at Sewage’s high level of creativity and energy.

Since those heady teenage times Sewage has become a favourite of the NZ experimental underground, performing at festivals such as Lines of Flight and Nowhere!, at legendary Wellington venue the Pyramid Club and making regular appearances in their hometown of Dunedin.

Since moving to Tamaki Makaurau in 2019 Ro Rushton- Green has become a vital member of the experimental scene there, performing with Superstarz, Shape of a Mouth, Psychick Witch, Kro- Moon, Rat Wraith, Nadir Knot and more.

Gabriel Griffin is a fixture in the Dunedin scene and plays regularly with songwriter Francisca Griffin and the Bus Stop Boys, hardcore band Swallows Nest and with the irrepressible legend Mick Elborado.

Sewage play shows in Christchurch, Oamaru and Dunedin with differing lineups of sonic fascinators.
