Queen's Birthday Music Festival presents


Sunday 4 June 2017 | 8pm

Two of New Zealand's indie rock heavyweights have joined forces for a formidable collaboration. Don McGlashan (Blam, Blam, Blam and The Mutton Birds) and Shayne Carter (Straightjacket Fits, Dimmer) share the stage for a rare occasion. The pair have hit the road together, sharing stages from the far North to the deep South. While they won't hold back on renditions of some of their best known songs, it's no reunion show, nor a nostalgia trip - more an adventurous wander down the dusty alleys of their musical inventories. The pairs surprise alliance was first debuted at the 2016 Auckland Arts Festival, wowing crowds and critics alike.

David Larsen gave the show a rave 10/10 review in Metro Magazine, saying "the only thing wrong with this concert was that it was too short by half."

In the New Zealand Herald, Russell baillie hailed the show as "neatly unpredictable... highlights were the hypnotic spells cast by by both of McGlashan's Envy of Angels and Seed from Carter's Dimmer days."
