Three Iconic NZ Acts Together for the First Time

There are only four weeks to go until the Taupo Fairway concert is here, so get your hat and sunscreen ready, and get in quick because tickets are selling fast!

New Zealand’s national treasures The Topp Twins – aka identical twin sisters Lynda and Jools Topp – have performed around the world as an original country-music comedy duo for more than 25 years and continue to delight audiences from the alternative to the mainstream. No other act has such unique cross-over appeal, and are equally at home performing in front of a gay/lesbian audience as they are in a Rugby stadium as the opening match entertainment.

Wilson Dixon has been on the Country circuit for about twelve years now. He has played all over the world; throughout the U.S. and Canada, in Australia, N.Z, the U.K. and in Samoa.

Along with Brendon Dugan, these iconic acts are arriving in Taupo, New Zealand on March 22nd at the Taupo Golf Club for an afternoon of laughs, music and hopefully sun! Set amongst the picturesque landscape and on the manicured grounds of the Taupo Golf Club – just a swing away from Taupo’s town centre.

Tickets: www.ticketek.co.nz / 0800-Ticketek $59 or 2 for $99 + booking fee, children under 14 are FREE with an accompanying adult.
Times (subject to change): Gates open 1pm, support band, Brendon Starting at 2 pm, Wilson Dixon at 3pm, and the Topp Twins at 4pm.
Refreshments: A wide range of quality food, beer and wines are available - concert-goers can also bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages. FREE water is available at all venues.

**Onsite parking available.

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>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
