Seeds of Orbit, Selective Yellow on K'Road

It’s a powerful Powertool Saturday on K’Road with Seeds of Orbit and Selective Yellow


Bands from the Powertool family are storming Karangahape Road this weekend, with 2 shows in close proximity and well worth checking out. They're only $5 each; so for a mere $10 cover charge, you'll receive a very well-rounded musical experience.

Seeds of Orbit present: A Musical Happening
The Dog’s Bollix - Saturday May 17
Starring:
Seeds Of Orbit
The Lowest Fidelity
The Psychs

$5
Starts 8pm
The critically-acclaimed Seeds of Orbit listened to the people’s pleas for a mighty homegrown psychedelic band – and boy, have they answered them. Following the release of their self-titled EP and a blistering live performance with the Psychic Maps, they've given everyone's ears and minds long enough to recover from their release party, and are back for Round 2 of their sonic takeover plans.

Something of a supergroup, this three-piece has a deep love for heavy mod, stoner rock and acid folk. Made up of Mark Petersound (aka Mark PetersenStraitjacket Fits, Cabbage Bomber, Shaft), Bridgette Bowie (The Doris Days, Cabbage Bomber and legendary all-girl punk band Fake Purr), and Marty Doo (NZ: The Beads; Australia: Glide, Challenger 7, Scruffs, Grapefruit),their mind-alteringly psychedelic debut EP ‘Seeds of Orbit’ was recently released on Powertool Records.
The Seeds perform a set that visually lives up to their musical power; and it’s something to behold.
Saturday May 17th - Dogs Bollix with the Psychs and The Lowest Fidelity
