International Bands go 'after' Arch Hill Bands
Tonight (Saturday) at the Studio in Auckland we have Lambchop with David Kilgour and talented friends the Boxcar Guitars...tomorrow night (Sunday) we have Lambchop, Kilgour and Ghostplane at Indigo in Wellington. Lambchop are bringing a seven-member band, most of whom played on David Kilgour's Frozen Orange album.
...Ghostplane no doubt will be playing some tunes from their upcoming 'almost finished' album.
...Pine opened for the Violent Femmes in Christchurch on Thursday...unfortunately due to an outbreak of Mad-Bird-Flu disease up at Arch Hill towers we failed to get this information out to you in will be relieved to know we found the cure on Trademe and all is well.
