Weekend NZ Live Gigs + Streaming Events Guide

Weekend NZ Live Gigs + Streaming Events Guide

An unexpected outcome from the shift to Level Two is the clear division between the extroverted and the introverted. Fortunately for both parties, there are still streamed shows for the homebodies and IRL live gigs coming up in the calendar. Whether you're looking for trouble this weekend, or not getting excited and taking it easy, here's what you need to know...

For those braving the great outdoors, tickets are limited and selling fast, so there's no time for hesitation. Oscar LaDell & Hoot, supported by Jo Little and Jared Smith cosy up Ōtepoti's Dog With Two Tails tonight with an evening of fiery blues and soul, promising new tunes and new news. If you're a Cantabrian in need of a gentle transition into occupying public spaces, Darkroom is hosting their Dark Disco listening party on Saturday – book a table with some buds and have a boogie in your seat to indie, synth, post punk and new wave tracks. Same vibe in Pōneke with new regular DJ night Darkness, where you can be one of the first to experience the "super limited and untested and weird seating plan at Valhalla". There'll be two sessions on Saturday night to make sure everyone can join in, or you can be a greedy bugger and get tickets for both and stay there all night long.

And the streams keep on streaming this weekend, raising funds for MusicHelps, Save Our Venues NZ, and Delaney Davidson. Award winning Aotearoa songwriters Kerryn Fields and Kendall Elise are rounding off NZ Music Month with a couple of soulful, folky sets tonight from 7.30pm. They're raising awareness for New Zealand Music T-Shirt Day, and donating a portion of ticket sales to MusicHelps. Tāmaki Makaurau's Neck Of The Woods is nearing the end of their #saveourvenues Boosted campaign, so they're hosting Opensouls, Che Fu, Concord Dawn, The Beths (DJ set), State Of Mind, Melodownz, Rubi Du, Bbyfacekilla, Rizván and more at their lovely Karangahape Road venue and broadcasting it live on the net from on Saturday from 2pm. If theatricality and commitment to the medium is what you're after, Delaney Davidson is performing on Saturday night from 8.30pm, and considering his streaming events so far – you're in for a helluva show
