Celebrate New Years Eve with the Good Folk of Goodshirt!

Celebrate New Years Eve with the Good Folk of Goodshirt!

Portland Public House, New Years Eve 2013

This New Year's Eve, why contend being stuck at home with a party hat and the obligatory party streamer when, instead, you could ring in 2014 with the incredible talents of Goodshirt, Voom, Mulholland and The Pencils?

Well... why?

The Portland Public House, Kingsland's newest home for live music and obscene amounts of fun, see fit to make sure that 2013 goes out in style with four of New Zealand's most beloved bands taking party goers on a part-nostalgia trek and a part “shape of things to come”. Having dropped a cheeky EP earlier this year (Skinny Mirror),Goodshirt celebrate their return to writing and recording with this very limited-capacity show.

With their long time BFF's Voom, expect the pair to play some old favourites and a tastier of new works to come – while Voom have been laying low, Buzz Moller and cohorts have been writing new material and, akin to Goodshirt, have new songs for their 2014 adventures.

The two bands are joined by celebrated song-writer Jol Mulholland a.k.a Mullholland, who not only is an incredibly accomplished musician and songwriter in his own right but boasts an impressive catalogue as a producer. The line up is completed with the newly formed The Pencils, featuring former members of Flying Nun stalwarts' Birds Nest Roy and Superette – both of which have seen or about to see reissues through the iconic Kiwi label very shortly.

With DJ Ray Nugget, the promise of yet more guests to be announced over the next few weeks and Portland Public House becoming more of a hotspot for emerging and established musical talent to frequent in Auckland, why not acquaint or re-acquaint yourself with four acts that have shaped New Zealand musical landscape for the better over the past two decades?

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Alison McCulloch: Lest We Remember

Local iwi have plans to spruce up the Te Ranga site as part of the 150th commemorations this year of key battles in the “New Zealand Wars”, but not a lot of money to do it with.

Information gathered from numerous government agencies shows that while more than $25 million is being spent on monuments and commemorations relating to foreign wars, primarily World War I and its centenary, only around $250,000 has been set aside for those fought on our own soil. More>>
