Dust off your denim jackets kids, Kiwi pop-idol Ladyhawke is putting down the guitar, whipping out her record collection and bringing the ruckus this Orientation.

From humble beginnings in the Wairarapa town of Masterton, Ladyhawke, AKA Pip Brown, has rocketed to international fame with her catchy retro-tinged dance pop. Having won the adoration of a herd of New Zealand loyalists, Ladyhawke has now made her mark on the world following the release of her breakthrough self-titled album.

In 2009 she won two ARIAs for Best Breakthrough Single and Album, a Brit Nomination for International Solo Artist, and bagged six New Zealand Music Awards. As well as playing in almost every festival in Europe, Brown has dusted off most of North America with her retrospective blend of synth rock, opening for Ida Maria, and kicking some shit with Peaches along the way.

Currently working on her second album, Ladyhawke will be swinging by the San Fran Bathhouse this Orientation Week, detonating the dance floor with what is sure to be an eclectic collection of hip-hop, rock, cool 80s classics and a range of her influences. Ladyhawke promises to keep the Bathhouse pumping all night.

Heating up the room will be Frase (formerly of Frase + Bri) with his gleeful synth beats, the perfect starter for what is sure to be a frenzied night of partying.

VUWSA and VBC 88.3FM present Ladyhawke (DJ SET) with supporting act Frase
