Boundless Pop Punk fans set to see Braves

Boundless Pop Punk fans set to see Braves

For Pop Punk fans in Auckland there have been few local bands worth making the effort for but as Auckland quintent Braves have seen, the genre is not dead, the fans are boundless and they know what they want to hear!

Having been together since the beginning of the year, already gigged around New Zealand and gained a steady following, Braves aims to encourage others to become a part of the scene and start their own bands. Currently in the process of preparing the release of their 5 track EP, the band hopes that others can join them, with ambitions to have fun rather than be the best and hate on other bands out there.

This Saturday night Braves headline an intimate show at the Ding Dong Lounge in Auckland with very special guests Chasing South.

Get involved and become a part of the crew. Entry free is $10 at the door with drink specials until midnight.

Braves & Chasing South
Ding Dong Lounge
26 Wyndham Street
Saturday 17 August 9pm
$10 at the door

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>>
