Tuesday: Flux launch with Girlboss and Zero Cool — if you want to catch the opening of Wellington’s newest collectively operated community art space, supplemented with some angsty indie goodness and local works to feast your peepers on, then get on down to Wellington Museum between 6.00 and 9.00pm.
Wednesday: Eyegum Wednesdays with Shards and New Age Leper — wash away those mid-week blues and desperately flail to some stoner rock/emo tunes over at San Fran from 9.00pm.
Friday: Margins and Inky Waves End of Summer Tour — if you like your doof with a little more doof, then boy does Margins have the party for you! With huge local house and techno names like ya girl k2k, Norma, Leo G Clark, and the unbelievably beautifully named DJ Kush Boogie, this one should have you reeling right into next week. Even better, it’s only 10 smackers on the door at our favourite metal den, Valhalla. 9.00pm start.
Saturday: French For Rabbits — French for Rabbits have been doing a lot of things lately. If you want to see them do some more things, then San Fran at 8.30pm is the place to be.
Saturday: Melting Faces, Mr Amish, Zero Cool — if dream pop is not your bag, then come along to Caroline to have your Amish face coolly melted off with some psychedelic indie sonic love, 9:30pm.
NOT ’TIL APRIL 21, BUT GET YA DAMN TICKETS: Sad by Sad South Festival — a fresh new fest for all you sad little creatures to get your yearly fix of melancholy. Poetry from Wellington’s secret empress Hera Lindsay Bird, aptly named Freya Daly Sadgrove, + many more sad people ready to share their feelings. There is also music! Grayson Gilmour, Soda Boyz, Girlboss, and Long Distance Runner are all part of a much longer list of people who intend to touch instruments in just the right places to make you feel things. It’s all going down on April 21–23 in Newtown, and tickets are only $35 from Under the Radar, so get your greasy, tear-stained mitts on them, stat.
