Gig Information

VUWSA, VBC 88.3FM and the SFBH is proud to announce the return of VBC Wednesdays, and Orientation 2010 with DEERHOOF w/ GRAYSON GILMOUR and SETH FRIGHTENING

Having toured the world extensively throughout 2009, acclaimed indie quartet Deerhoof will be crashing the O-Week party in March with polyphonic rhythms, crashing guitars and adorable melodies. Since their formation in 1994, Deerhoof have redefined Original. Their infectious blend of off-kilter pop, pulverizing noise rock, and innocent melodic cheer has restlessly evolved with each album, demolishing genre boundaries, and winning almost complete and undisputed critical acclaim. Deerhoof are known for their eccentric originality, harmoniously balanced with the alluring and unique tone of Japanese vocalist Satomi Matsuzaki.

Dramatic, electric and colourful; live, Deerhoof woo their audiences into a hypnotic yet frantic state. Their performances have been described by as a frenetic powerhouse that peaks on the edge of collapse, a certain one-of-a-kind spectacle for VUWSA Orientation 2010.

A Grayson Gilmour gig is a rare gem, but this doesn’t prevent one of Wellington’s most prolific and creative artists from delivering a live spectacle to rival any singer-songwriter in New Zealand. Gilmour has been working tirelessly over the last two years, developing new material both for himself and his band, the epic So So Modern. In O-Week the polyphonic frenzy of Deerhoof will be accompanied by the merciful but sinister crooning of Grayson Gilmour.

The warm sonic tapestry of Seth Frightening is gaining notoriety and acclaim at a rapid pace. A folk act unique and rich with sentiment, Seth Frightening can deservedly be compared to the talents of Elliot Smith, The Mountain Goats, and Bon Iver, and will add a beautiful blend to the line-up.

This is an evening not to be missed.
