Miniatures

Excellent shoe-gaze trio formed around the songs of Annemarie Duff (vocals, electronics and production), with Ché Walden (guitar) and Steven Marr (bass). Duff’s vocals (a wispy Cocteau Twins type approach), enveloping electronics and Walden’s guitar engulf the groups sound, with Marr’s bass adding substantial groove. The Christchurch group picked up steam in 2012 with more and more live performances, but sadly both Duff and Walden are now leaving for Melbourne.

Zinefest Afterparty: St Eden, Shark Street and Piha Rescue

Christchurch’s first Zinefest was a big success – great work to Eamonn, Timmy and the rest of the crew that put on an excellent gathering and after-party at Darkroom.

After-party entertainment came from the up-and-coming beats of St Eden, who’s got a cool sound going on with his electronic groove, the rock-a-billy 3-piece Shark Street, who got the crowd absolutely pumping, and the excellent surf-instrumental act Piha Rescue.

Great party vibe all night, great to see the fun returning to our broken city.
