We've reached the end of a wild week in Aotearoa that's included regional lockdowns, tsunamis and in this Tāmaki Makaurau-based writer's case: zero exercise. While live events for this weekend sure are looking sparse on the Alert Level 2 gig front outside of the super city, there's lots to get psyched about for the months ahead. Announcement highlights included Nadia Reid is embarking on a seven date nationwide tour with full band, playing some of her favourite venues this coming May, Pōneke songwriter Miles Calder is heading out on an all-guns-blazing release tour with full band for his debut solo album Autopilot Life, and Onbehalf and Twominds are teaming up to present a "two stop tour of two stepping madness" at Christchurch's FLUX and Wellington's San Fran in MarchThere was understandably a flurry of postponements this week — Estère revealed new dates for the Pōneke artist's Archetypes tour, Clap Clap Riot locked in a new set of August dates for their upcoming Aotearoa Tour, the mammoth multi-stage Newtown Festival 2021 will now be taking place on 11th April, and Punk It Up V is being put on hold "until the western world gets a better control on this COVID-19 pandemic," with the aim to "pickup where we left off, sometime towards the end of this year, or early 2022."
