Boxcar Guitars Final Show


Unfortunately Ben Maitland, Guitarist/ Vocalist/Songwriter for THE BOXCAR GUITARS will be leaving New Zealand a little earlier than anticipated, he flies out December 5th.

This means the end of The Boxcar Guitars in New Zealand (if not forever, at least for an extended period of time)

To celebrate (ummm not sure if this is the right word... however) THE BOXCAR GUITARS will play a final show;

Wednesday 30 November The Odeon Lounge 8pm door, opening act 9pm (tba), The Boxcar Guitars 10pm

The will be no cover charge, so come a long and help send the band off, perhaps even buy them a drink.
