We're stoked to help spread the word that seated live shows are currently flourishing throughout Aotearoa, as displayed in our happily stacked latest UTR weekend gigs roundup (which seems to be getting bigger every week). Highlights include party punks DARTZ in Napier, the second round of Palmerston North's all-ages Swampfest events, John Halvorsen's (Gordons / Skeptics / Bailterspace) solo project Vörsen, the grand opening of Wellington's Herb's Mobile Records store and a whole lot more. Under Alert Level 2, gigs are no longer capped at a specific number of attendees but social distancing and mask-wearing is still required — check out the updated Level 2 guidelines for bars HERE and for events / entertainment HERE.
