Arch Hill November News and Shows

Hi there,

Following a swag of AHR releases by Pine (Akira Sunrise - October) David Kilgour (Frozen Orange - September) and Fang (Swim Up Stream - August), Arch Hill HQ is picking up the pieces, and some bands are playing some shows around some of the NZ the following order;

Thursday 11th November - Kings Arms (Auckland) - Pine, Alec Bathgate, Fang and guests.
This show contains majority Christchurch representation, Pine (also 100% Pine) and Alec Bathgate (also 50% Tall Dwarfs) make a rare combined trip north to Auckland to celebrate their respective album releases - Akira Sunrise (Pine) and The Indifferent Velvet Void (Alec Bathgate - on Lil' Chief). Joining the party is Fang and other guests. Not only is this a special show because it is a double album release, but it is a little extra special because it is the first joint Arch Hill-Lil Chief adventure. Music will be starting at the respectable hour of 8.30pm so don't be too late.

Friday 12th of November - The Odeon (Auckland) - Pine, Alec Bathgate and the Bads
A wind-down lower-key less plugged in affair at the beautiful Odeon with special guests the Bads. Similar but different to the above.

Saturday 13th November - Bodega (Wellington) - Ghostplane and the Lahars
Ghostplane have been hunkered down brewing up some fine new recordings and have decided to venture out into the Wellington spring evening, with the Lahars, who slid out of the excellent Livids...the gig apparently promises "dancing beers, beer chested men, beer-ded ladies"

And on the Telly...
Look out for Pine on Top of the Pops this Saturday night at 6pm on fact if you feel like attending that performance send us an email and we'll look up the directions...also look out for videos that have been getting a bit of play on the telly by Fang ('Something Good') Pine ('See Saw'). Red Drum also have a new video for 'Gun in Hand' which will be viewable soon...some of these (OK..we are a little behind...but we'll get them all up there soon) are (or will be) on the arch hill website at

Luv from Arch Hill
