Jed Parsons And His Friends - 2020, You're Fired! Show Announced

Jed Parsons And His Friends - 2020, You're Fired! Show Announced

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 18th November, 2020 12:17PM

If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that 2020 has sucked ass. Universally regarded as a dumpster fire of a year, Ōtautahi songwriting phenomenon Jed Parsons has done right thing in organising a headline extravaganza celebrating "the imminent death of 2020", taking over his hometown's Cassels Blue Smoke on 18th December. For Parsons' final show of this "pooey year", the 2018 IMNZ Debut Release of The Year finalist will be joined on stage by the largest version of his live band, playing alongside buds GOODWILL and The Knews. Sounds like a super fun Xmas rager to me — look forward to (hopefully) bright times ahead and grip the details right here...

Jed Parsons And His Friends - 2020, You're Fired!
Friday 18th December — Cassels Blue Smoke, Christchurch, Canterbury w/ GOODWILL, The Knews

Tickets available HERE via UTR

Press release:

To celebrate the imminent death of 2020, Jed Parsons is bringing the largest version of his band together for their final show of this pooey year.

Parsons and his band will be joined by GOODWILL (fresh off his extensive nationwide tour with Dave Dobbyn) and The Knews - a reunion of sorts, with both acts featuring all the ex-members of the chart-topping band 'nomad'.

2020 will have been given its two weeks notice. Let's celebrate.

A couple of years on from the release of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Midnight Feast’ (IMNZ Debut Release of The Year finalist), and over 1.5 million streams down the track, indie-pop sensation Jed Parsons has settled into the dizzying heights of people saying “oh yeah, I think I’ve heard him before”.

He’s not complacent, however. Having already graced the stages of Auckland City Limits, Electric Avenue, Nostalgia Festival and North West Festival in his short career, Parsons is trucking on, selling out shows on countless tours and releasing popular indie pop singles ‘Playstation & Porn’, ‘She’s The One’ and ‘Sad Together’ from his forthcoming sophomore album.

Parsons’ sound is a culmination of his rich and varied background as a touring musician, which has taken him around the world and into the studio with the likes of nomad, Pacific Heights and Mel Parsons and Hera.

His music balances eccentricity and energy with intimacy and musical sensitivity, maintaining a focus on catchy hooks and lyrical prowess.

“If you’re a fan of upbeat indie-pop, then you might already be aware of Kiwi muso Jed Parsons. But if not, he’s undoubtedly about to become one of your new favourite artists…” - Tone Deaf, Australia
