The Last Phoenix Gigs for 4 Months!

The Last Phoenix Gigs for 4 Months!

This is the big one fellas & fellisios....The Phoenix Foundation are giving it one last run around the track before we get stuck in to some recording, a trip to OZ and then an extended holiday from our respective egos.

Radio Active presents The Phoenix Foundation and Disasteradio Friday the 30th of April and Saturday the 1st of May at Happy (corner of Tory and Vivian Streets).... with John White (on Friday) and Leila Adu (on Saturday) providing extra special sophisticated support...

its an intimate venue and tickets are in short supply, they are available from Real Groovy and Radio Active for $15

Visuals will be in the hands of video rebel Ed Davis

This will be a lovely kick start to NZ Music Month and we would love to see you there.

cheers sam

PS make our sponsors love us...visit and buy good music from Slow Boat Records

PSS thanks to all the people who have come to our gigs and bought our album in the last year, it has been most enjoyable.
