Repulsive Woman, Créme Jéan + More Announced For Better Living TV Episode 2

A.K. / Wednesday 13th May, 2020 11:39AM

This Friday the industrious Ōtautahi team from Melted Ice Cream and Space Academy are dressing the digital stage once again for Better Living TV Episode 2. The now-weekly streaming event has already showcased more than 40 Aotearoa acts in the past month, and the continued high calibre of musicians for this weekend's show is a promising sign for episodes to come. Pōneke folk-pop songwriter Finn Johansson will no doubt put on an entertaining show, and 2020 Auckland Live Best Independent Debut award winner Repulsive Woman aka Millie Lovelock is beaming in all the way from the UK. Legendary noise artist Bruce Russell (The Dead C, A Handful Of Dust) is making an appearance after Tāmaki Makaurau party starter Brad Fafejta of Créme Jéan performs his first ever solo show. Keeping up the good vibes, electronic-pop creators French Concession and Ducklingmonster have back to back slots, and Sam Wilkinson's Music Sucks returns with new tunes. Take note of the full lineup and schedule below...

Press Release:

Better Living TV Episode 2.
Airs 7pm-11pm NZST Friday May 12, 2020 at

Over a million hippies in the same place. You could walk into the crowd sober, wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers and come out red-eyed stoned, wearing a poncho, a peace sign necklace and bell bottoms.

That was Woodstock 69. You weren’t there. But you were at ‘Better Living, Everyone!’

Melted Ice Cream’s streaming festival, ‘Better Living, Everyone!’, was shockingly good. Over the course of two days, 34 acts performed via their phone cameras on to captive* audiences. It was a roaring success.

So shockingly good that, just like Woodstock had sequels Woodstock ‘79, ‘89, and Woodstock ‘99 (when the riots broke out during the Limp Bizkit set), Melted Ice Cream are planning on recreating the phenomenon by turning it into a weekly ‘TV show’ - an online gig, every Friday evening that you can stream and watch on your TV (or on any device of your choice).

Christchurch venue Space Academy’s Richard and Hamish have been tasked with curating the shows, continuing the tradition of quality gigs with excellent lineups their venue has gained an international reputation for.

Better Living TV. Every Friday night until the end of Lockdown (and maybe even after). Tune in from 7pm at

*Literally captive. During Level 4 lockdown, audiences were by law required to watch Better Living, Everyone.
