Mothers Dearest, Josie Moon, and a special guest.

Wednesday 7th March, San Fran. FREE ENTRY

On Wednesday the 7th of March the gig-goers of Wellington, San Fran and Aro Creative will prepare their mightiest mid-week roar to welcome Mothers Dearest, a burgeoning Wellington post-punk four piece built around experimentation with the raunchy sound of the Rat Pro Co.

This will be one of Mothers Dearest last Wellington shows with their current lineup, led by songwriter Frazer, and they will be headlining. This Summer they have played their loud and unapologetic set at Eyegum: A Gathering in the forest 2018 as well as supporting Bakers Eddy on their ‘17 Summer tour.

Mothers Dearest will be supported by the ephemeral and encapsulating live set of Josie Moon, who has recently been announced on both the Something Something music festival lineup as well as Newtown Festival and is toasting to the success of her single ‘Satellite’.

A SURPRISE GUEST will also join the lineup for Wednesday (to be announced on Monday the 5th of March) bringing their innovative electronic set to the stage accompanied by projection visuals. This show is proudly supported by San Fran and Aro Creative, a Wellington Incorporated Society with the intention to work with the same artists to create a body politic of, and symbiosis between, Wellington’s creative people.

The doors will be open from 8:00pm, and San Fran will have drink specials as part of their Wednesday night to be kind the student budget. As well as that, this stellar gig is FREE ENTRY (R18)
