Top Night For Topknot

Top Night For Topknot

RadioActive.fm, The Red Bird Discotheque and Mayhemsound Wellington are proud to bring you a benefit gig for the Topknot Whanau.

As you may know there was a devastating storage fire recently that saw a great loss of valuable possessions. So many people lost so many things and it's hard to comprehend exactly the scale of what has gone. We can only hope that the people affected can one day recover from such a sudden and tragic event.
From household goods to Oscar awards, record collections to vintage furniture, massive sound systems to family souvenirs, all has gone. We send our love and support to all those affected and wish you nothing but happiness in the future.

In response the friends and colleagues of Brendan "Topknot" are raising some cash to help ease the difficult time ahead. He lost records, sound systems, musical instruments, heirlooms and beyond that his family is facing struggles too great to mention here.

We invite you to join us in a massive musical genre bending evening of love and good vibes at Meow Edward St. It's koha entry so give what you can and for those not familiar with Te Reo Maori , Koha means Fifty Bucks!!!!! nah in all seriousness $5 would be great $10 would be better $20 would be O for awesome!!

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
