The Eastern Save Our Venues Fundraiser Event Announced

The Eastern Save Our Venues Fundraiser Event Announced

A.K. / Tuesday 2nd June, 2020 2:29PM

The Eastern have announced their first post-lockdown live show, and it's going to be a doozy of a night at Ōtautahi's Blue Smoke. For starters, this will be the first time Cassels Blue Smoke opens its doors for a live music event in more than two months, a travesty that has been aided by the #saveourvenues campaign with dozens of other much-loved Aotearoa venues. To purchase a ticket, donate $40 or more to Blue Smoke's Boosted campaign, earning you a 'Wooden Ticket', which is legal tender for entry into "ANY Eastern show, anytime, anywhere in NZ". If the donation is made before this Thursday it also puts you in the draw to win a coveted 'Golden Ticket', the bearer of which will be treated to a double pass, dinner for two and a table for this Saturday's show. Here's the run down...

Press Release:

We're over the moon to bring you news of our very first live show post lock down!

Donate and win yourself a Golden Ticket to see The Eastern live on Saturday 6th June at Cassels Blue Smoke. Every donation of $40 or more automatically receives a Wooden Ticket AND gives you a chance to win one of 25 Golden Tickets - which means a double pass to the show, dinner for two, and a table to share.

As we emerge from this period of withdrawal and shut-down we can think of no better way to ease our social distance and bring folks back together again than with the rolling, rambling, spirit raising atmosphere of an Eastern live show. The Eastern are known nationwide and internationally as a hard driving, hard working, hard hoping, huge hearted, country/folk/string/rock n roll powerhouse. Described by ‘No Depression’ as “one of the best modern roots acts from any country”.

By donating $40 or more to the We Love Blue Smoke Save Our Venues Campaign between midday Thursday 28th May and midday Thursday 4th June, you will automatically be placed in the Golden Ticket draw and ALSO automatically receive a Wooden Ticket allowing you one off single entry to ANY Eastern show, anytime, anywhere in NZ, Yes! This is a raffle where you just can’t lose!

This very special intimate seated show will be the first live music performance featured at Cassels Blue Smoke post lockdown. Cassels Blue Smoke is an endeared cornerstone of Aotearoa’s touring circuit, hosting national and international acts such as Dave Dobbyn, Mac Demarco, Marlon Williams, Holly Smith, Justin Townes Earle, Aldous Harding, Delaney Davidson, Reb Fountain and The Beths. All donations will help us open our doors again so that we can support musicians to perform, provide some much needed income for our crew and get back to work to bring you more of the shows you love.
