ELVIS COSTELLO
Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than three decades. He is probably best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and his concert appearances with Steve Nieve. In 2003 The Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while he has twice won the prestigious Ivor Novello Songwriting Award. The extensive list of performers that he has enjoyed collaborations with – including his wife, the jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall - and that have covered his songs reflects his interest in a wide range of musical styles. His internationally acclaimed music television series “Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…. “perhaps best showcases this uniquely qualified musician, a songwriter and performer comfortable in almost every genre imaginable and a musicologist of formidable breadth and knowledge.

DON McGLASHAN – From “Anchor Me” to the Hollie Smith sung hit “Bathe in the River”, Don McGlashan has penned some of New Zealand’s most loved songs. Prolific throughout the 80s with Blam Blam Blam & The Front Lawn, the 90’s with The Mutton Birds, and the 00’s with solo albums and writing music for soundtracks and theatre shows, Don is showing no signs of slowing down.

SATURDAY JANUARY 19 – THE CIVIC THEATRE, AUCKLAND

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
