Lindon Puffin Plays Cathedral Square

Lindon Puffin Plays Cathedral Square

Free Friday Lunchtime Concert, Cathedral Square, Friday 30 May, 12.15pm to 1.15pm. Guitarist/ singer/songwriter Lindon Puffin plays in Cathedral Square this Friday lunchtime as part of Christchurch City Council Leisure's Free Friday Lunchtime Concert Series and New Zealand Music Month.

His Creative NZ funded 'Really Real Tour' consists of 46 shows in 42 towns & cities from the Swamp Palace in Kaitaia all the down to the South Sea Hotel in Stewart Island. In addition to this, 30 High School musical workshops have been incorporated into an itinerary, which spans 4 months, concluding back where it began in Christchurch at the Dux de Lux on the 29th May 2002

The tour coincides with the release of his self funded/recorded debut solo album 'Stuff Like That' from which the first two singles 'Rock no More' and 'Thing called Love' have been chosen to appear on NZ on Air Indie Hit Disks 19 & 20 respectively. Rock no More went on to achieve nationwide airplay, featuring as the theme track on a recent award winning TV2 short film.

Ex front man for successful Christchurch glam pop group 'The Puffins', Lindon describes his up beat solo approach as 'wooden punk'. Wooden in a sense honest acoustic kiwi feel, and punk because of the lively interactive show.

"I love telling the stories behind the songs and getting the audience involved.' He says, " A good show has it's own life; it's got to be spontaneous. I try hard to let go and roll with the moment, that's why I gave up using set lists."
