Saturday 8 October

Sandwiches is proud to present the original Queenstown bad boys -


Comprised of the legendary DJ Downtown Brown and his trusty MCs P-Digsss (Shapeshifter) and KPz, the Sunshine Sound System have turned out parties from Cape Reinga to the Bluff and beyond. As a crew, the trio have shared the stage with the likes of The Nextmen, Aphrodite and London Electricity, as well as headlining major festivals all over New Zealand, with crowds at Kaikoura Roots, Rippon, and Destination all baring witness to the Sunshine's good-time vibes.

The Sunshine Soundsystem have developed a road-tested recipe for good times - Downtown holds things down behind the wheels of steel like no other, taking 'eclectic' to the next level as he weaves hip-hop, funk, dancehall, reggae and jungle into a ready-made party. Mr Brown is the man behind infamous Queenstown club Subculture (and a handful of killer bootleg releases including the infamous Billie Jean sampling floor-smasher that has become a favourite with fans all over the world), and provides the funky backbone over which his MCs P-Digsss and KPz deliver their unique tag-team vocal styles, adding mo' flavour to the mix every step of the way.

Don't miss the chance to witness a rare Wellington performance by one of the Aotearoa music scene's dopest crews, in what promises to be one of the parties of the year.

THE SUNSHINE SOUNDSYSTEM, with support from Duncan & Charlie Diamonds

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>>
