Most FM gig picks this week!
Kia ora and it’s been a week of reality bites as a lot of us head back into the working realms of 2017. Never mind, there’s some good gigs around the traps to ease the pain. Sporty’s, on Thursday, is hosting the talented Ross and Chris, aka Off the Cuff, and this is a great spot for hospitality and entertainment combined. The Open Mic Night is operating at Decanta, this is always a good opportunity to see some up and coming talent. Friday sees the coast come into play as  Sugarjuice Café is hosting a dinner and band combo for $35. If you’re in town, check out Thamasis at Decanta from 10pm. These guys hold their own with enthusiasm and great range of offerings to quell your creative thirst. Saturday presents options, SLAM at Decanta, Thamasis at The Mayfair, and The Blistered Fingers and Peggy Gordons. Grab some mates and do a mini-tour. Speaking of tours, relax on Sunday at The Mayfair with Sonic Delusion on their single release tour, this starts at 2pm and is sure to be a great afternoon of sound.
Most FM Sauce of the week!
The Sauce has spent some time in and around Pukekura Park this week, taking in both music and sport within its confines. The music has been excellent and the line-up that organisers have collated has to be commended. There has been huge turn-outs on both lawns and a good vibe while artists have presented. That vibe seems to change once people get mobile and either set to leave or walk the lights as The Sauce has unfortunately noticed a bit of path-rage. The council has done a great job of organising the festival, how about we do ours as patrons? There was a bit of shop-rage at the CD Stag game as well, perhaps warranted (but not condoned) as the beverage tent ran out of cans during the innings break. Some patrons waited 7 overs to get to the front of the line, only to be told there was no EFT-POS, the colour of language matched the evening lights. Some things can be anticipated and some things can’t. The Park, this week, has been testament to this.
