Powertool Easter Show - at Golden Dawn, Tavern of Power

Powertool Records Easter Show - at Golden Dawn, Tavern of Power

If you’re in Auckland and some Easter Saturday fun sounds tempting, we might have just the thing…

Powertool Records is holding a wee listening party from 7pm on Saturday March 30 at Golden Dawn (corner of Richmond Rd and Ponsonby Rd) just before the Gold Medal Famous and Huf FREE show. We’ll play you a few tunes from our new releases before the bands take the stage. Oh yes, and it’s free entry for both too. So please feel free to join us for an evening of great new music and live entertainment.

We’ll be spinning tracks from the new US/NZ collaboration Drill/I Have No Idea, also tunes from UK/US duo Factory Kids, plus a swag of our lovely local artists.

Then the live action fun begins, with Huf and Wellington’s own avant-garde pop performers Gold Medal Famous.

About the bands playing on Easter Saturday:
If you’d like a musical break from hot cross buns and chocolate bunnies this Easter, Wellington avant-garde pop group Gold Medal Famous are taking their inimitable live show on the road as a special performance treat this Easter. Doing a short, sharp burst of shows starting in their hometown of Wellington and closing in Tauranga, Gold Medal Famous will showcase tracks from latest album ‘100% Pure’, plus selections from their highly diverse back catalogue. This album, plus their previous Powertool release ‘100 Years of Rock’, will be available at the shows.

Australian ex-pat Steven Huf moved to New Zealand in part to join cult band Sharpie Crows, but is also an adept solo artist. He's just released the video to single 'Untitled', and the kaleidoscopic overlays on the video compliment the lilting, melancholic nature of the track perfectly. Check the video out and listen to the single, below.

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.
