95bFM announces powerstation show to celebrate 50th year

Auckland’s 95bFM turns 50 next year and celebrates with 95bFM GOLD, a night at Auckland’s Powerstation on February 15.

The show features the heavy-riffing Beastwars, Aotearoa’s landmark Original World Famous True School Hip Show (with founding hosts and guest MCs) and high-energy monsters Miss June.
Wellington’s Beastwars came out of hibernation this year to conjure their sludge-metal spell over a sold-out national tour, delighting the faithful who live to ‘obey the riff’.

The True School Hip Hop Show has been a fixture of both the 95bFM airwaves and the Aotearoa hip hop landscape since 1993. This unique performance features original DJs Philip ‘Sir-Vere’ Bell (O.N.Z.M.), Robin ‘Base’ Paratene and Mark ‘Slave’ Williams alongside hand-picked guest MCs and current True School hosts Ev Love, GetBan and Barry Bonza. Consider yourself warned by the True School: “this won't just be retro shit!”

No strangers to the 95bFM airwaves, Miss June’s volatile and enigmatic live show hints at what’s to come with their eagerly-anticipated debut album. Now’s the time to catch them before everyone else does.

95bFM GOLD guarantees a memorable night out, as well as an opportunity to take pride in supporting 95bFM, one of Auckland’s great champions of independent music and culture.
