Red Panda: Thought Creature, Warble, Shocking and Stunning Statement, Ruffians

Good show that. Great crowd celebrating the return of Wellington’s Thought Creature and put on by Christchurch’s own self-professed world’s biggest Thought Creature fan Eamonn Marra. His Rockquest-finalist band Warble played an uncharacteristically messy set following up promising performances from newcomer duo’s the Shocking and Stunning Statement (who have a phenomenal drummer and display jazzy touches) and Ruffians (who were an MP3-backed noise-rock outfit).

A Flight to Blackout, …Damage Done, Warble

Red Panda Party with a bunch of Post Rock favorites. Canterbury Rockquest winners Warble set the scene with a wonderfully textural set of dynamically shifting songs, highlighted by dramatic violin. Next up were new comers Damage Done, much more aggressive and thrashy but with some keen influences; these guys could become quite a cool band i reckon. A Flight To Blackout were solid as usual, showing off a new song and introducing a bunch of the young folk to their meticulously crafted songs.

Ghostwork, Denmark Street, Warble and Sandfly Bay

Another downbeat show at the Social Centre, with a mix of old-school rock (Sandly Fly and Denmark Street) and post-rock (Warble and Ghostwork) vibes. Warble’s down to a 4-piece now and sound really together; whilst Ghostwork are pretty slick for only their 2nd show; Sandfly Bay continue to grow and improve; catch those poppy fellas at the Halloween show next week. Had to leave as Denmark Street were starting to rip into it///
