Live Show Alert: The Wendys At Christchurch's Darkroom

Live Show Alert: The Wendys At Christchurch's Darkroom

C.C. / Photo credit: Feather Unsure / Monday 18th May, 2020 10:10AM

This is a significant week for Aotearoa's music community, as we finally welcome the reopening of venues from Thursday 21st May, due to the staggered relaxing of restrictions at Level Two alert status. Anticipating the flood of event announcements to come, Canterbury's Darkroom have got the ball rolling with a special double-session seated show starring surf-rockin' champs The Wendys, throwing our music scene a lifeline as we wade back into regular gigs again. While international artists are still literally barred from our shores, now's the time to get amongst it and support our own world-class homegrown talents, and keep our much-needed venues thriving in the bargain too. You can donate direct to Darkroom's Boosted fundraiser here and grab tickets while you can to this strictly limited capacity show...

The Wendys Live In Level 2
Saturday 23rd May - Darkroom, Christchurch

Tickets for the 7.30pm to 9.30pm session available HERE via UTR 
Tickets for the 10pm to midnight session available HERE via UTR 

Listen to what The Wendys say and 'Get In The Flags', from 2018's Watch Out Losers​.​.​. It's The Wendys EP...

Press release:

The Wendys return to Darkroom's stage for two shows on Saturday 23rd May

Under level 2 guidelines, venues can only have groups of up to 10 people seated, spaced 1 meter apart, for 2 hours at a time.

This means most gigs can't operate how they used to and venues need to find new ways of how to deliver live music.

Tables and chairs reduce capacity and in Darkroom's case the reduction is substantial.

With all of this in mind and the anticipation of large volumes of people we have had to change the model under which we operate.

Under this new format, Darkroom will have ONE-TWO bands/show doing TWO performances a night (8pm and 10:30pm) Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Doors will open 30 mins before the music/show and the venue will close 30 mins after the music/show to turn around for the next show.

It's definitely not normal, and we'll be adjusting things as we go but, we think this is the fairest way for as many people, as safely as possible, to see a live show.
