Beauty And The Beats

Beauty And The Beats

The second annual Beauty and the Beats dance party will feature some of New Zealand's top DJs. Timmy Schumacher and Greg Churchill, along with many other top NZ DJs, will be performing at Coast Bar and Lounge on Saturday 8 May.

Greg Churchill who has been putting together parties and hosting radio shows since 1984, is undoubtedly a legend within the NZ dance scene and is happy to support Youthline. "I like to commit to a few events and stick with them - that's why I'll be returning for Beauty and the Beats 2004. Youthline do a great job offering support for young people so I'm happy to help them out," says Churchill.

Event organizer, Lizzy Rahui, is excited about the scene's support of the 2004 event.

'It is really heartening that so many people from the dance scene want to be involved and support Youthline. Events like this work well when people use their talents to contribute to a great night,' says Lizzy Rahui.

Youthline has been working with young people and their families for more than 34 years. It's not just about people at risk: Youthline provides development pathways for the many young people who want to help their peers and communities in positive, practical ways. Events such as Beauty and the Beats provide a valuable opportunity and setting in which this can be achieved.

Tickets are available for $15 from Play, Real Groovy, DMC High Street and

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
