Gold Medal Famous: Eclectotronica in Wellington

Gold Medal Famous: Eclectotronica in Wellington

Our wildest avant-garde pop group, Gold Medal Famous, are set to release their new homage to dance music, the “Free Body Culture" EP later this year and a new album - "Album of national significance" – due for release early next year. And they’ve coined a whole new genre name for their sound with this EP – ‘eclectotronica’.

To celebrate in their own riotous live style, they’re playing 2 shows in Wellington:

Gold Medal Famous "The Midnight Creeper Show". August 17, late, late Saturday night at Puppies (corner Tory and Vivian Street, Wellington). 1am start free entry.

Slutopia, Gold Medal Famous and Tietz Syndrome "Free Body Culture Celebration". Free entry. September 14. At Understudy, 80 Cuba Street (corner Cuba and Dixon Streets), Wellington.
