Underground Resistance helps at-risk teens

Legendary dance DJs are set to turn mentors to at-risk teens when they visit Wellington next week.

DJ Skurge and Mad Mike, founder of Underground Resistance, will be joining a mentoring programme run by Ken Laban of the Tamaiti Whangai programme which serves young people in the Hutt Valley.

The two events that DJ Skurge and Mad Mike will perform at are to help fund UR traveling to NZ to participate in this program, with any profit generated being directed back in to the community.

"We expect this to be a very positive experience for our young people and hope it will be a small step to enrich their lives," said Ken Laban.

Obscure.co.nz, one of New Zealand's most popular dance culture websites is proud to present the Underground Resistance New Zealand Tour 2008 and their involvement in the Tamaiti Whangai mentoring programme.

It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to catch the Detroit techno legends in Aotearoa.

Skurge will be behind the decks playing the gamut of modern and historic Detroit Electro and Techno.

We humbly request your support of the Tamaiti Whangai cause by attending the club events.

Christchurch
Saturday 30 August @ Culture Club
With Kill! Club

Wellington
Friday 5 September @ Curve Bar
With Recloose, Navigator Zero and Sebastian Coda
