National Sensation

Tour Information
Wellington based duo NATIONAL SENSATION is coming to a local near you* in April and May this year with their unique blend of kiwiana-indie-folk-rock-alternative-pop music.

Fresh off the Renegade stage at Camp A Low Hum, NATIONAL SENSATION is beginning to garner critical acclaim.**

They’ve been compared to Kate Bush, Bjork, Devendra Banhart, Jefferson Airplane, The Phoenix Foundation, Florence and the Machine, London Grammar, The Top Twins and various other bands that they are trying really hard to rip off without infringing on copyright.

For this tour, NATIONAL SENSATION (Mike Robinson and Charlotte Shade) will join forces with percussion maestros Jesse Kearse and Rupert Snook, bringing a bigger sound than ever before.

But wait there’s more!!! NATIONAL SENSATION is offering you a FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you don’t enjoy the show.***

*near you if you live in the lower North Island
**from mates/mums
***just pop up after the gig, look us in the eyes and tell us exactly why you weren’t satisfied


6.30pm – doors open

7pm – Birdfeeder (opening act) – Pōneke trio Birdfeeder possess a truly out of the box sound. Haunting, hypnotic and psychedelic are all relevant descriptors but so are ‘devoid of noisy guitars’ and ‘riddled with ear-worms’.



Vogelmorn Upstairs is the same venue as the Vogelmorn Bowling Club.

Vogelmorn Upstairs is not a wheelchair accessible building. There is an accessible bathroom in the space.

This is an all ages venue but those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a designated adult.

The venue is licensed, so you can’t BYO alcohol, but you can purchase it on site.

The Vogelmorn Precinct is a community space located in a residential area. With that in mind, the team ask that you be kind to others' who are using the Vogelmorn spaces and that when you leave the gig, you do so quietly to avoid disturbing our neighbours.
