Lindon Puffin and Dark Tower at Temple

Lindon Puffin and Dark Tower at Temple

Thursday 17th October 9pm

Lindon Puffin, ex frontman for big hair group 'The Puffins', performs solo Thursday 17th October at the newly refurbished Temple in Auckland. Supported by fellow mainlanders 'Dark Tower' Lindon will folk punk his way through a steaming heap of songs from his upcoming debut album 'Stuff Like That'. His lively performances have seen him sharing stages with Sam Hunt & Chris Knox of late, so don't miss this sweaty little one off...(the gig that is)

Jody Lloyd from Dark Tower's most recent project is the recently released "Fresh Jams" under the pseudonym "Trillion". A collection of largely instrumental down-beat material recorded by "various artists", all of which turn out to in some way or other actually be the handiwork of Lloyd himself, either solo (under various pseudonyms), in collaboration with musically minded friends or remixing other artists.

Lindon Puffin & Dark Tower - live at the Temple, Thursday 17th October 9pm
