Damien Dempsey NZ Tour from March 22nd - minimum four shows

DAMIEN DEMPSEY (IRELAND)

“IT’S ALL GOOD” – NEW ZEALAND TOUR

Experience the awesome force of Irish working class hero, Damien Dempsey, up-close and solo in his first ever New Zealand shows.

From the post-pub singsongs of his childhood home to the stadiums of the world, Damien Dempsey is one of the biggest acts out of Ireland today. Following in the footsteps of The Dubliners and The Pogues, and adding reggae and rock and Celtic rap, Dempsey imbues traditional Irish folk with hard-hitting social themes. Astonishingly gifted, his arrow-true voice is powerful and poignant, his live performances, passionate and profound.

With fans that include Brian Eno, Sinéad O’Connor, Bob Dylan and U2, (both of whom he has shared a bill with), and Morrissey, who invited him to support him on his US tour, Damien’s albums have topped the charts and gone Platinum, and he has been lauded by, among others, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Billboard, MOJO and The Sunday Times.

Hot on the heels of the release of "It's All Good, The Best of Damien Dempsey", a celebration of his career to date, Damien Dempsey is touring to Australia and New Zealand.

For his first ever visit to New Zealand he presents four special solo gigs in intimate venues in Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Auckland.

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>>
