BIG SHOUTS out to everybody

1992 - 2002
:Always shining

BIG SHOUTS out to everybody who has passed on the congrats. via e.mail & phone for reaching double figures and we`re sure looking forward to Saturday, its gonna be the one to top `em all - but lets not forget there`s plenty more life in the collective still - bookings for summer are starting to mount and it looks like the roots vibe is pulsing dubwise thru Aotearoa once again.

THIS SATURDAYS ³Roots Explosion² - for want of a better term - and there is none - kicks off in a staggered style and fashion, with the three separate zones opening hour after hour from 10pm thru until Midnight. (see set lists below for details). We will be running the PAs in all zones for five hours in advance of opening time to ensure the rooms are warmed and the sound systems are red-hot & ready to shakedown your very soul when you arrive.

PRESALES are still available today, Friday and Saturday from the regular outlets but if you`re thinking of holding off for door sales, be warned that queues are not what we would call a pleasant way to start the night !!

THATS IT - yep, turning ten may be a breeze for some but with an all-star cast spread across the three zones its gonna ba a huge night and to make it just right we`re off into production mode for the next two days - so get down, get busy, secure a ticket while they last and cut a track for Edward Street on Saturday night.
