FOREVER SON (SOLO) SUPPORTED BY PHOEBE JAMES

SUNDAY 14 JULY | TICKETS $10

Join Melbourne alt-folk artist, Forever Son at his first New Zealand show, a Sunday soiree at Christchurch's Wunderbar, supported by local artist Phoebe James.
Forever Son is singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jack Robbins. Drawing inspiration from Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Daniel Rossen and Fleet Foxes, Forever Son’s sound is raw and free flowing with a splash of reverb.
His songs imbue dreamy, sun-soaked mornings without the restraint of calculated thought. Forever Son performs both solo and as a three-piece band, alternating between pensive solo acoustic moments and head-nodding, foot-tapping folk rock.
KICK OFF 5:00PM | ALL AGES

SKYSCRAPER STAN

THURSDAY 8 AUGUST | TICKETS FROM $12

Beloved songwriter “Skyscraper” Stan Woodhouse releases lush new album “Golden Boy vol. I and II” with national full band tour.
Revered for his piercing observational lyricism and thrilling live performance Stan has once again teamed up with long time touring band the Commission Flats and engineer/producer Richard Stolz (Paul Kelly, HUSKY) to create a rollercoaster of a record.
Following on from 2015’s Last Year’s Tune, Golden Boy is tender, angry, introspective and political over the course of its 10 tracks. Split into two 5 track volumes the full length LP first tackles themes of privilege, masculinity, crime and ambition before moving into an introspective and autobiographical exploration of lessons learned (or not).
