3rd Monday of August, 17.8.09

For today, well tomorrow as it is still Sunday night here,ย  I have another reminder, wink wink, this WILL be happening every month: Thursday night is Blues Night at Bar Bodega again, and because it’s a school/work night we will be starting at 8pm.

Next up a review of last months Blues night, which was absolutely stunning! Thanks to EVERYONE who made it and contributed to a great night.

And then a few videos of Minuit’sย  CD release gig at Sandwiches and the live set at Real Groovy in Wellington.

And this will have to be it for this time; I’ve been chewing through a few hours of video footage, and got heaps more coming. Yeah, more to look forward to for the next month.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy and any comments more than welcome!

15.6.09 Part II

And just to keep everyone on tender hooks, I think I will have to publish in two more lots.

Technical difficulties, broadband and upload issues and other stuff that delays.

Woohoo, another place that doesn’t deliver everything ALL AT ONCE!
I will have to work on a few things, so please bear with me while I learn.

There will be more Elston Gun videos coming, smaller files to be played here, the same ones as bigger and BETTER on YouTube, for now. Until I can afford an upgraded account on Vimeo. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Also coming up another review: the Super Furry Animals and their latest release ‘Dark Days/Light Years’.

And last but not least the next gig I will be attending, and so should YOU! If you happen to live in Wellington, New Zealand. ๐Ÿ˜‰

3rd Monday of June, aka 15.6.09

Today I’d like to bring a few items to your attention:

First of all, this Thursday, 18.6.09 willย  see another Blues night presented at Bar Bodega in Wellington. The first show went down a treat , and I’m looking forward to this one: a Muddy Waters tribute.

Next up, New Zealand International Film Festival 09 is coming toย  Wellington from 17.7 – 2.8.09. The film schedule is about to come out next weekend, so grab a copy and plan some audio-visual indulgence! Go with your best mate, go with your work mates, go by yourself, BUT GO!

And remember to book EARLY!

Another item on my to-do list for this blog, and an on-going item: collecting relevant information about live music venues: their locations, sizes, contact info, websites and whatever else might be relevant to night-time fun seekers and bands. And that will include a photo of their front entrances @ night. Once the weather cooperates with me.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

And last but not least: a review.

My opinion on Elston Gun’s Chaperone Release gig.

As always: comments, ideas and opinions appreciated.

New video up…

…for the Rosy Tin Teacaddy gig!

Have a look in the gig review section and enjoy a quiet lie-in with a good cuppa and an engrossing crossword puzzle!

Starry Nights

I’m soo in love with this city:

this summer I have noticed that the council is putting onย  shows during the week with all-time kiwi favourites.

Wellington City at night

And last night it was Fur Patrol.

Man , they were on fire. Loved the whole show, and all the extra bits: like Craig Terris and Tom Watson of Cassette, Adam Ladley and Nina Seigler of Family Cactus,ย  Jeremy Taylor and Claire.

I’m absolutely stoked how the Wellington music scene seems to be one big family, they all do their stuff in their individual bands, and are more than willing to join a gig and have fun!!

Videos will follow, it will take a while to process and edit the over an hour of footage ๐Ÿ˜‰

Watch this space!
