VBC 3rd Birthday

How better to celebrate turning three than to put on one stonker of a show at the San Francisco Bathhouse? Sure beats my third birthday, which was a tumultuous combination of tears and toddlers. For the best third birthday you’ve ever been to, head along to SFBH on 5 March for VBC’s 3rd birthday with none other than The Mint Chicks, Die! Die! Die!, and Bang! Bang! Eche! (No birthday presents required.)

The Mint Chicks have been rather busy, what with relocating to Portland in 2007, losing their bass player, finding their bass player, releasing an album Screens in 2009, and a brand spanking new EP, Bad Buzz, coming out in February. Known for their amazing live performances, a number of catchy tracks and a handful of great videos, The Mint Chicks are sure to put on one hell of a show.

Die! Die! Die! have just recorded album number three—it’s not out yet, but is certain to live up to the band’s history of impressive recordings. Die! Die! Die! have, as usual, been extremely productive—touring, recording, touring—they never ever seem to stop. Fortunately, Die! Die! Die! are gracing us with this non-stop energy for what promises to be a very exciting night!

Bang! Bang! Eche! are a bunch of young punks from Christchurch, formed by T’Nealle Worsley in 2007. They’ve since been picked up by the underground management (New York). And with two EPs out, Bang! Bang! Eche! and Sonic Death Cunttt, you should expect big things from them.

Tickets available from (0508 DAZZLE), Real Groovy and

For one easy booking fee of $3.50 (for both students and regular folk) you can load up all your Orientation events on one card. Cards are available online, at the VUWSA office on campus and the Dazzle ticket booth in the quad during Orientation Week.

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.
