A LOW HUM is back !

A LOW HUM is back !

A LOW HUM is back ! Kinda.

It's been a long, sleep filled, relaxing six months since I took some bands around the country and released a compilation and It's about time I stopped looking after myself, got my ass of the couch and got back out on the road.

A LOW HUM series two finished earlier in the year in April and A LOW HUM series three doesn't kick in till early next year, but I've put together a teaser tour to fill the gap very nicely.

There will be no issue of A LOW HUM magazine with entry to this tours shows… but instead you will receive a copy of A LOW HUM DVD#2, the kick ass follow-up to last years bNet nominated DVD. This years 4 hour DVD blows away last years miniscule 2 hour effort 'cause as well as music videos it features heaps of extras like Documentary's, alternate endings, unreleased clips, directors commentary's, tour films, live videos and heaps more! For a full listing of what's on the DVD, check out below.

And of course, the best part, the show!

So So Modern have set Wellington alight with their mad blend of disco punk and they've set Wellington 's ovens alight with their mad blend of cakes and muffins. They are the cats pyjama's, I think they wear the cats pyjama's and if you don't feel the need to dance while watching them, you are certainly not the cats pyjama's. I don't quite know how to describe their sound, but they make me dance the electric wookie.

Then that must make TeenWolf the electric wookie and they have the coolest name in the country (apart from So So Modern ), but this isn't just a tour of bands with the coolest names, TeenWolf are also a piece of cats clothing, maybe the cats straitjacket? If I was at a loss to describe So So Modern , I won't even begin to describe TeenWolf , they reckon they sound like The Gilmour Girls and a punch in the face and If that sounds like your kind of night out, then party.

This tour also doubles as a release party for A LOW HUM's Local Knowledge which you will also receive a free copy of. Local Knowledge is a guide that shares the knowledge gained by heaps of different bands, promoters and music fans about touring the country. This guide is essential for any band and music fan in this country (well… most of ‘em)

That's a pretty tidy little package. A 4 Hour DVD, a touring guide and a kick ass show.

Thanks so much to the visionary folk at Jack Daniels, Phantom Billstickers and The NZmusic Commision for supporting A LOW HUM & Local Knowledge. Cheers to RDU, Active, Contact, RadioControl, R1 and FleetFM for spreading the word over the airwaves.

And a big hug to all the bands who gave their videos to the cause.
