I Am Giant add a second Christchurch show to final NZ tour

I Am Giant add a second Christchurch show to final NZ tour

I Am Giant are stoked to announce the addition of a second Christchurch date to their national tour, with tickets for the Saturday show nearly sold out! Also, due to unforseen circumstances, both Christchurch shows are moving venue to Sullivans.

The band released their third and final album ‘Life in Captivity’ on Friday – it was the number one seller over the weekend at JB Hifi and has begun to receive rave reviews:

‘Perhaps one of the best they've ever written’ Heart and Noise

With Woolright, Matthews, and Timu currently living in New Zealand, the UK, and Australia, and new projects on the horizon for all of the members, Life In Captivity will be their final project as a band, at least for now.

‘‘The last 10 years as I AM GIANT have been just huge. We’ve written some good tunes, taken them round the world, met some awesome people, played amazing shows and festivals, and most importantly, we’ve had so much fun doing it. We have to thank all our fans and friends for making this possible and give an extra special shout out to Chris Morgan and all the members of the I Am Giant Army for their years of dedicated support. Without them we would not have been able to have experienced this amazing journey ’ Paul Matthews

I Am Giant’s third and final album ‘Life in Captivity’, features the singles Dead Flower, Playing With Fire and Don’t Look Back, is out now via AWAL and Rhythmethod

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions.
