Free Dunedin Concert Featuring The Phoenix Foundation & TTOB

Phoenix Foundation and The Thomas Oliver Band Free Concert at Dunedin’s Urban Factory confirmed for September 8th!

Thursday, 1st September, 2011
NZ Music Commission

The Phoenix Foundation and The Thomas Oliver Band are teaming up for a not-to-be-missed double billing at Dunedin’s URBAN FACTORY for a free show as part of the REAL New Zealand Festival.

With acclaimed gold albums and movie soundtracks to their name, as well as recent rave reviews in Europe, The Phoenix Foundation are one of New Zealand’s most innovative and respected bands.

From intelligent and infectiously catchy pop/rock gems, to epic, psychedelic prog rock, The Phoenix Foundation’s music is a glorious pop polyglot: sun-bleached harmonies, chiming guitars, progressive synth-scapes and subliminal rhythms, combined at the service of consistently high-grade song-writing, yet the result never sounds like anyone else.

The Thomas Oliver Band have a completely unique and unrivalled sound which is a culmination of Blues, Rock, Country and Roots music, with inflections of Folk and Alt-Pop.

Their fresh instrumentation including Lap-slide Guitar, Double Bass and Baritone Saxophone, along with Oliver's compelling writing style, create a sound which is absolutely unique and unequalled in New Zealand.

Both bands are acclaimed for their dynamic live shows, and musical journeys on stage together they are undeniably a complete live experience.

Join Phoenix Foundation and The Thomas Oliver Band at THE URBAN FACTORY, 101 Great King St, Dunedin on September the 8th as part of the REAL New Zealand Festival.

Please note: this is a licensed venue so is an R18 event

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>

Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>

Howard Davis: Byrneing Down the House - Spike Lee's American Utopia

Lee does an admirable job capturing Byrne's stunning live performance of his latest album, but the real star of the show is the staging. More>>
