Southland Musicians Club News

Dunedin alt-rockers Iron Mammoth’s gig at the Southland Musicians Club on Friday night is a fitting way to herald a mammoth lineup of gigs coming up to the club.

If you’ve noticed the weird rantings in this column and thought about coming down to our Preston Street venue for a geezer at one of the many gigs we host, I’ve got three words for you: just do it! We’d love to see you there. Here’s what’s in store for you epic people.

February 21: Iron Mammoth w/ Filth Wizard There’s nothing generic about these peaky Dunedin lads. Frenetic offbeat rock performed with gusto on non-generic rock instruments. Check out their song Heart to the Slaughter on Spotify. Glorious! $10 on the door.

February 28: The Eastern One of Aotearoa’s great country music, beard and banjo musical collectives, The Eastern bring their riotous, rollicking alt-country experience to Invers. Some money is expected to change hands at the door. Not too much probably. Adam McGrath’s quite good like that.

March 3: AGM you are most welcome to join us at our groovy little enclave’s annual general meeting. Why not put your name forward for the committee? Kickoff at 7.30pm.

March 7: Die Musikband w/ Darcy Kerr “Our set shifts between structured synth-rock pieces and motoric jams,” explains drummer Jeff Harford, formerly of seminal Shayne Carter Dunedin band Bored Games. Yowzah! $10 pre-sales on undertheradar.co.nz or $15 on the door.
