Blossoms @ Happy Date
Spring springs out at Happy on saturday the 6th on November with blossoming bands the Elephant Men, the Flower Orphans, FOOD, and No San Pedro.
The Elephant Men have been unleashing their mix of skronkin' stomp and blues blatting boister on audiences around Wellington for the last year or so, opening for Trinity Roots at the town hall on august the 14th and closing the the Wellington International Jazz Festival on the 30th of October. Described by Stephen Clover in a Secret City review as " the best live act in Wellington at the moment", the only thing these guys have to fear is fear itself and mice.
The Flower Orphans' seductive and mysterious perfume-for-the-ears has been wafting around Wellington for almost a year now. They've built a loyal following with their regular thursday night gig at Tupelo and intermittent shows at Happy. Their heavy ambience is set to WOW music lovers and lovers in general at the Wellington international Jazz festival on friday 22nd and saturday 23rd of October with "Spectre of the Brocken Pt 1".
FOOD are a delicious new flavour of music that will make you fat if you hear too much. This is their 3rd gig ever, so catch them while they're fresh.
No San Pedro have been gigging hard for over a year and a half performing their heavy psyco-delic-ious trance rock around Wellington and the surrounding regions to a growing number of loyal fans.
