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.

Scoop Review Of Books: From Here And There

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story
by Helene Wong.
This is the fascinating story of Helene Wong, born in 1949 in Taihape to Chinese parents: her mother, born soon after her parents migrated here, and her father, born in China but sent to relatives in Taihape at seven to get an education in English. More>>

Chiku: Hamilton Zoo's Baby Chimpanzee Named

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand have confirmed that the existing ANZ Championship format will discontinue after the current 2016 season, with both organisations to form national netball leagues in their respective countries. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
