Our gig last night in support of Ash and the Matadors at their EP release was a shining example of just how healthy things are in Dunedin at the moment.

We often have a little whine about there being not enough places to play, but last night there were attractive gigs at Chicks, Refuel, Ombrellos, Swell, the Long Beach Hall, The Robbie and of course, upstairs at the Cook, where we were. In a town this size you could expect that we’d have had a small audience due to the split, but the place was bouncing. A testament, I think, to the wealth of talent about at the moment and the enthusiasm surrounding it. It’s easy to lose sight of that sometimes.

So thanks, Dunedin. And thanks to Ash and the Matadors for giving us access to your tremendous audience.
