NZ Music Month - One Week To Go

NZ Music Month - One Week To Go


The countdown is on until the start of NZ Music Month – New Zealand’s annual celebration of great homegrown music and its makers!

This year, in partnership with Beck’s, the official beer of NZ Music Month, we’re proud to present The Beck’s Sets – seven live concerts throughout May featuring some of the very best local talent.

The Beck's Sets kick off with two free shows on Thursday 1st May in Auckland – first a free lunch time concert of contemporary baroque pop by Silver Scroll and Taite Prize-winner Lawrence Arabia
in Takutai Square, Britomart. Then get ready to gaze at your dancing shoes with She's So Rad, Delete Delete and Paquin later in the evening at Tyler Street Garage.

With further shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin, featuring more amazing acts including The Phoenix Foundation, Don McGlashan, She’s So Rad, Street Chant,
Ghost Wave and Janine & The Mixtape, there’s something for everyone… provided you have great taste in music.

Tickets to Beck's Sets shows are available from www.UnderTheRadar.co.nz but get in quick because they are selling fast.

Stay tuned for a run down of events, fun facts and videos, links and info about all the fantastic releases coming out this May.

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>>
