Special guests announced for David Dallas' Bodega Show

One Orientation Wellington are pleased to announce that Spycc and The Drax Project will be supporting David Dallas & The Daylight Robbery at Wellington’s Bar Bodega on Saturday 8 March as part of Wellington’s 2014 student Orientation events.

All Student and Early Bird pre-sale tickets have now sold out, however a limited number of final release tickets will be made available via dashtickets.co.nz (and selected Dash outlets) from midday tomorrow, Tuesday 25th February.

Fresh from supporting a 55,000-strong crowd at Eminem’s Rapture show in Auckland recently, David Dallas is one live act not to be missed right now. Arguably the biggest innovator in hip hop New Zealand has seen in two decades, David’s critically acclaimed album ‘Falling Into Place’ has already seen singles ‘Running’ hit platinum status, and ‘The Wire’ not far behind selling gold.

This will be the last chance for Wellingtonian’s to catch him live before he embarks on a European tour later this year.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
