While Aotearoa's live gig community is collectively keeping fingers crossed for an end to the current round of Covid-19 restrictions, our local musos have heroically continued to deliver killer tunes to keep us going during turbulent times. Consider it your civic duty to mask up, social distance and wash your mitts to help create the best conditions for live shows to thrive into the near future — plus if you live outside of the super city, why not support your favourite venue(s) by heading along to a seated event this weekend?

Looking forward to action-packed times to come, announcement highlights for the week included Dunedin's Ha The Unclear are embarking on a whirlwind run of release shows this spring for their new single 'Strangers', rising Wellington-based songwriter Sam Cullen announced a six date national tour celebrating the launch of his forthcoming debut EP 1000X, Christchurch's Chris William is touring his second EP Light Shines Above across NZ in October, and guitar-pop superstars The Beths shared rescheduled spring dates for their long-awaited Jump Rope Gazers, but happily eased the pain with the revelation of top notch regional supports including Mermaidens, K M T P, Disciple Pati, Pickle Darling, Dateline and even more.

While we wait for the coronavirus clouds to part, we can sink our teeth into a Caught Live clip featuring wild footage of Pōneke's Dartz tearing through a fistful of anthems, live in the studio of their windswept hometown's RadioActive 88.6FM back in March.
