Great night out. 43 bands in 6 hours. I made it to 9. All good, not a dud amongst the bands that I saw.
The downtown venues were not too far apart, the weather was mild and the beer cold. Reminded me of SXSW.
I posted some vids on the Facebook from my phone. I also shot a couple of videos.
I had the most fun with the Aussie band, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding. I don’t usually make it to midnight on a Friday but very pleased I persevered.
Here’s two clips, first a great cover (I was expecting Benny & the Jets off a recent EP…), then a new track off their latest album.

David works really hard to make his music sound effortless.David Kilgour & The Heavy Eights playing The Studio, Auckland on 2 September 2016
Amelia Murray seamlessly makes the move from bedroom pop to the stage. Sweet slacker pop. She was so excited to be on stage. I have included the vid I watched before the gig, and her latest tune to listen to / buy. Amelia was interviewed here by some American NZ music aficionados who lust after Chris Knox.Fazerdaze playing Galatos, Auckland on 2 September 2016Little Uneasy – Fazerdaze
