Getting pretty excited now…


It’s a little less than a month until Auckland City Limits kicks off at Western Springs. There are the big headliners in the outstanding lineup – Legendary Grace Jones, prolific multi-genre musician Beck and painfully honest Will Toledo of Carseat Headrest (Best Albums 2016) but it’s going to be difficult to pick a favourite. I’m looking forward to seeing kiwi collaboration The Beths and their upbeat take on 90’s alt-rock.

American indie-folk band The Head and the Heart are a big deal too. Have a listen to ‘Library Magic ‘ (isn’t that a phrase so perfectly knitted together). I’m hoping they appear in the late afternoon sun.

I’m beside myself to see Aaradhna. I’ve listened for a long time but never seen her live. I’ve heard she has immense stage presence. Listen to her incredible voice here:

And we’ll be treated to the gorgeous harmonies of The Staves

And, of course, there is the brilliance of Thundercat. Too much! Hope to see you there – tickets are nonsensically still available….
