A Massive Celebration Of Music At Happy

Happy Daze! A Massive Celebration Of Happy Music

HAPPY
Cnr Vivian and Tory Streets
Wellington

Sat 17th Dec

12pm - 3am

To celebrate a fantastic year of music and performance HAPPY is presenting a 15 hour music and food extravaganza on Sat 17th December featuring an incredible lineup of Wellingtons musicians and performing artists.

Throughout 2005 Happy has hosted an amazing variety of gigs, shows and performances and this end of year extravaganza will feature many of the artists who have made the venue such an exciting hub of NZ music and performance.

The day kicks off at 12pm with an afternoon of jazz, acoustic music, sound installation and dance then moves into rock, pop and avant-garde bands interspersed with spoken word, video art and many other surprises. Members of the legendary theatre troupes Red Mole and Roadworks will perform, as will two of New Zealands greatest dancers Kilda Northcott and Lyne Pringle. Music ranges includes songsters Leila Adu, Sam Scott and John White, the throat singing of Jonny Marks, a banjo pluckin' Manimanima!, the incredible grooves of No San Pedro and many other established and emerging acts.

Tickets are $15 or $10 and give access to the entire event so people can come and go as they please. The day has been conceived to allow for musicians and punters to go to other gigs and still be a part of the celebrations.
Proceeds from the event will go towards keeping the Happy doors open in 2006.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

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>>
