1. Christchurch Earthquake Relief
2. Bush Hall :: The Veils + more
3. Vibe Bar
4. o2 Empire :: Shapeshifter


Our thoughts go out to all the people affected by last week’s earthquake in Christchurch. We have been contacted by many people with regards to fundraising events, two of which are listed below. We are working on something for later in the year, which we hope to be able to announce soon.

If you cannot attend either of these events, or wish to donate anyways, the UK Red Cross has set up an appeal at, which has the advantage of being Gift Aid registered, so, if eligible, please check the “UK Taxpayer” box so that they can claim 28% tax relief on your donation and this will be added to the fund. For those who are not UK taxpayers, you can donate to the NZ Government’s Earthquake Appeal, at


The first fundraising concert is this Thursday at the beautiful Bush Hall.

Artists performing include The Veils, Rodney Fisher (ex Goodshirt), Chris Lawson Jones, Ian Munro, Louise & The Pins and Renee Brennan (ex Tadpole)
