What's On About the Place

Hello there,

Thought it might be a good idea to slot in a bit of Arch Hill news before the second weekend of the week begins (in NZ).

Pine live in Hong Kong, Australia AND Christchurch Pine are embarking in a 'western Pacific rim' tour with Minisnap and the legendary Bats, taking in the Pearl River Festival in Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne and hometown Christchurch. The Bats have been very successful in Australia over the years, and Minisnap is an excellent new project by Paul and Kaye from the Bats. The Pearl River Festival takes place over 1st and 2nd of March and includes local(NZ) and international acts such as Ash, Shaun Ryder, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Bats, P-Money, Minisnap and stacks of others. The tour dates are...

8th Feb - Christchurch at the Jetset with Minisnap and The Bats 2nd March - Hong Kong at the Pearl River Festival 6th March - Sydney at the Annandale Hotel with The Bats, The Bites and Minisnap. 8th March - Melbourne at the The Corner Hotel with The Bats and Minisnap.

Fang Video on Space tonight Look out for the new video for 'Man From the South' on Space tonight (Friday 7Feb, TV2, 10.30pm), made by Richard Bell (U2, Beck, Johnny Cash etc) and Stephen and Aaron from Pine (who collectively are the One Collective). M2 have also been giving the video a good run, so you might have already seen it there. Look out also for Fang live on the Space in the near future.

Luv from Arch Hill
