Happy new year from Temple

Happy new year !

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who maybe interested

I know its been a long while since I've been in touch, but I hope you've been good. I'll be back in touch soon with the usual lengthy bulletin but in the meantime......

I am organising supports for the Auckland Zoo who have some fabulous concerts over the next couple of months.

We are after supports for Thursday 3 February for Yulia and Sunday 20 February for Katchafire. There is a possibility we may need a support for Goodshirt on 26 Feb.

We are also after solo or duo acoustic acts to perform at the entrance plaza as the crowds are arriving/queuing to get in.

Unfortunately these gigs don't offer much in the way of $$ ( they pay a nominal amount to cover expenses) but they are great for exposure and contacts.

Flick me an email and let me know if you are interested in playing but PLEASE don't send me any attachments.

The gig dates are as follows if you want to come and check it out Friday 21 January (6pm 9pm) Dave Dobbyn Thursday 3 February (6pm - 9pm) Yulia Sunday 13 February (6pm - 9pm) Nathan Haines Sunday 20 February (6pm 9pm) Katchafire Saturday 26 February (6pm 9pm) Goodshirt (part of AK05) Saturday 5 March (6pm 9pm) Nesian Mystik (part of AK05)

Tickets from Ticketek and door sales will be available.

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
