THE DAUPHIN OF MISSISSIPPI & THE GOOD DOCTORS

WEDNESDAY 25TH NOVEMBER | TICKETS $10

About the Dauphin of Mississippi: Raised by Gospel Singers in the wilds of southern Mississippi and having moved to Wellington after a decade in Wyoming, critics and audiences compare his songs to John Prine, Gordon Lightfoot , Leonard Cohen, Bonnie Raitt, and Guy Clark. His first album, (2017's self-produced Prodigal Songs for the End of Days), a furious genre bending romp through an America collapsing under late stage capitalism (and where Donald Trump is the Antichrist), netted him WyCMA finalist nods for Album, Songwriter, and Americana group of the year 2019 's The Book of Vanities, produced by Josh Gray of Ivy Hall Studio in Nashville, features the likes of 14-time Grammy winner Dan Tyminski on fiddle, flatpicking wunderkind Seth Taylor on mando, and living Bluegrass meme Tony Wray on banjo and guitar.

OSCAR LA DELL & HOOT WITH LITTLE JO

FRIDAY 27TH NOVEMBER | TICKETS $10

Oscar LaDell and Hoot are coming back to the Wunderbar for a great night of music and dancing, joined this time by Dunedin singer Jo Little who will perform an opening set.

This tight 4-piece original blues band from Dunedin is freshly cut food for the soul. Frontman and second generation blues singer Oscar LaDell expertly leads each tune with stirring, velvety vocals and dynamic lead guitar licks. Nestled right in there behind him is Ruairi Griffin’s shimmery rhythm guitar hooks, punctuated by Oliver Robson’s
solid bass riffs and Rani Cohen’s funk infused drumming. Hoot’s set rambles through songs of hardship and longing to hypnotic crescendos that work any audience into a fever. These boys really know how to howl.

PRINCESS CHELSEA

HOMECOMING NZ TOUR 2020

SATURDAY 28 NOVEMBER | TICKETS $25

Princess Chelsea announces her first tour of Aotearoa in two years after the release of her last album, The Loneliest Girl delivering a mix of known and loved PC songs along with a smattering of brand new music.

Princess Chelsea describes the return as “The tour is a return to live performance after I put my health before my music for the first time in 2018 and paused my ‘Loneliest Girl’ tour of New Zealand midway through. Two years later I'm pressing play again and excited to come back.

Lauded by The FADER as “a Nancy Sinatra for the Shazam era – her voice, warm as a dimming flashbulb, spreads prestige over music that infuses genres from pop to house”, Princess Chelsea will be accompanied by the same band that toured the world with her for the Loneliest Girl album release in 2018 with the addition of Simeon Kavanagh-Vincent (Lucky Boy, Phoebe Rings). The band’s motto is “100% live aka no laptops and as many synths as possible.

Joining for the full tour is Dunedin electronic artist, Stef Animal, acclaimed by Bandcamp Daily as “a leading example of Oceanic Vaporwave.

Visuals for the shows designed by the fantastical video animation artist, Simon Ward.
