The Sick Boys with the Blends and Sarah Brown

The Sick Boys with the Blends and Sarah Brown

Friday 6th and Saturday 7th December

The Sick Boys are keeping it real at the Temple for shows on Dec 6th and 7th.

The band that claims to be 'the worst in New Zealand' are planning to show that less really is less. This will be a triumphant return for The Sick Boys now that their drummer has returned from whoring himself across Asia.

The Sick Boys' music sounds a bit like a combination of Ash, Crowded House and The Foo Fighters, songs to keep under your pillow or perhaps tucked into your jammy-jams. The Sick Boys will be preceded by special guests The Blends who play fun and light hearted rock songs about living like a lunatic, the girl next door and the wonders of gertrude.

The fabulous Sarah Brown was one of last year's York Street Studios Acid Test finalists and is not to be missed!!!

Contact The Sick Boys for tickets email..., or call 021 742 526.
