Excitment City!

I am really excited. There are quite a few big things going on at the moment with my recordings going on adverts and in computer games etc. But also alot of music I've recorded being released!

Earlier in the month Bearcat finally got around to releasing their album and we took a trip down to Wellington and Christchurch the other weekend. I was quite disappointed to have to leave the tour party to go on to Dunedin without me but I came back to Auckland and played a lovely show with Grace Lawry.

Well this coming weekend Artisan Guns are having a release party at Cassette no9 on the friday and Great North are having their EP release party on the Saturday at the Wine Cellar.

Lets get outta this town.

Bearcat released their album nationwide a couple of weeks ago so they thought it was only fair to go and visit the finer parts of the country. Dan Jocee enlisted the help of Paul and myself (on drums and bass respectively) and we flew down to Wellington to play Watusi on the Thursday evening.

On Friday we woke up super early and caught the ferry to Picton then drove to Christchurch and played at Red Panda's (an organisation who put on all ages events in Christchurch) Prom. Oh my goodness there are going to be some great bands coming out of that city soon!

Both nights were great! Wellington had heaps of people in crazy (sometimes a bit scary verging on misfits) panda face paint and in Christchurch everyone was dressed in suits and ball gowns dancing crazy! Plus the people of Christchurch are super friendly!

I had to desert the Pandas to shoot back up to Auckland and play a show with Grace Lawry which was a bit disappointing to miss out on road trip to Dunedin, but Grace's show was well worth it! Pukekohe was crazy cool! Here are some photos from the trip...

Xiong Mao

Bear Cat released their album "Xiong Mao" the other week and I played bass at their album release show. Its available in most good music stores NZ wide now or come along to one of their shows and pick one up. I'm quite looking forward to playing with them in Wellington and Christchurch later this month.

Below are some photos from the Album release party at Cassette #9
