Nationwide Tour Announced For Pōneke's Macho Macho

Nationwide Tour Announced For Pōneke's Macho Macho

Annabel Kean / Thursday 14th January, 2021 10:55AM

Pōneke bedroom-pop foursome, and presumably part-time muscle men, Macho Macho have been oiling up their tunes and toning their vocal cords in preparation for a glistening summer tour. The up-and-comers dipped their toes into releasing music in early 2020, with a couple of demos and a couple of not-demos, sounding something along the lines of a Brit-pop group that moved to Dunedin and got into lo-fi psych music. Along with the handful of promising singles on their Bandcamp and a fine resume of shows throughout the last two years, the Macho boys entice gig-goers further with some top banana support acts on the bill. Catch them this O-Week season in Tāmaki with Cindy and Chewy Gum, their hometown with Miss Cressida and Wiri Donna, Ōtautahi with Sneaky Caribbean Monk Seals (not to be confused with the extinct species of seal), and Koizilla and Juno Is at the Dunedin grand finale. Dates, tickets, and links below...

KOIZILLA are Ōtepoti's favourite modern psychedelic rock troupe. Prepare to be ensnared by their awe-inspiring live show. JUNO IS - another rising Dunedin act, has had a huge year.
