Far South is proud to announce their premiere Dunedin show featuring Martin Phillipps, Two Cartoons and Katie Raven at 8pm on Tuesday 14th August at the Refuel bar on the University campus. These local musicians are putting on a show that will showcase both the classic ‘Dunedin Sound', and the original, new music coming out of Otago while also helping out those in need via the Dunedin Combined Foodbank.
The legendary Chills frontman Martin Phillipps presents quality, New Zealand-sounding, melodic rock music to the world. Martin's sound stems from the punk rock ethics of his musical awakening, always delivering live performances with intensity and conviction. The energy and emotion of Martin's music have transcended time. He is on top form for this event.
Two Cartoons are two guys making friends through the medium of music with an aim of putting smiles on faces and bringing cool dance moves back to the dance floor. The creative collaboration of Bradley Craig and Isaac McFarlane, Two Cartoons are a young emergent band that have already seen a high level of success, supporting Ladyhawke and Opossom, and featuring on TV3s 7 Days show as they prepare to take both local and international stages by the horns.
Singer/songwriter Katie Raven is a blinding flame of soulful fire that has been burning underground this year and is set to erupt into the eyes and ears or the world with a "train-stopping voice" and a body-rocking band. Lashing through a set of refreshing originals and blistering covers, Katie Raven dominates the stage and the hearts of all who hear her.
The 3 acts will each present a special showcase and also deliver some very special performances combining the unique talents of all three acts.
This is a one of a kind event and sure to be vital and inspiring. Do not miss this.
The show will be by donation of food or cash and all donations will be given to The Dunedin Combined Foodbank.
Martin Phillipps comments: "Its nice to be able to be in a position to help out local people in these difficult times."
Major Mick Marshall Manager Community Ministries Dunedin comments:
"Foodbanks are a real need in these days to help support people who struggle to meet their basic needs. We of The Salvation Army Community Ministries are pleased to combine with this special Dunedin Music group to raise funds for this work. It will be a great help to us to help others."
Far South would also like to acknowledge the generous support of Conceptio Unlimited, The University of Otago and the Otago University Students Association in supporting this event.
