Flip Grater NZ Summer Tour – February 2013

Press release – for immediate release

Flip Grater NZ Summer Tour – February 2013

Kiwi singer-songwriter and author Flip Grater has spent the last year living the broke-artist-in-Paris dream. Alone and penniless, she managed to find herself a place to sleep, a French band and a record deal while writing and recording a new album in her fantasy Parisian studio. Now embarking on a solo tour through Aotearoa, with the aim of fundraising enough to finish her album, Flip will be previewing new material for the first time for her home crowd.

Over the past eight years Flip Grater has made a name for herself in New Zealand as a unique indie-folk musician with three solo albums to her name, as well as being the author of two food and travel books, and a member of Fly My Pretties IV. Catch her live this summer in your town before she takes off again to suffer some more overseas.

Werewolf Film: It Follows - Panic In Detroit

Philip Matthews: When you heard last month that Wes Craven had died and you wanted to pay homage, you could have sat down with any one of five of his films that helped reinvent American horror at least three times over three decades...
