DJs Lawrence & Hanns Arabia 8pm - close
Everybody's favourite tag-team are back in "da house", for a night of high-class tunery. Mr Lawrence Arabia & Ms Hanns Arabia never pack light, and in this instance have promised a healthy dose of exotic, erotic and most often dance-worthy music from all across the plains of time and geography. Why not make this the happiest night of your life? There's nothing standing in your way.

Yam Jams! 8pm - midnight
The legendary Yam Jammers are returning to The Tavern Of Power for another bout of block-rocking-r&b-psychedelic-soul-funk-hop-reggae-rockn'roll! If you've been party to one of the Yam Jams parties, you'll know full well that your ears are in for a treat. For newcomers, well, get ready to be served aural gems by the best in the beezwax (business).
Phoebe Fox & Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre) 12am - 2am
So guess what?! Steve Kilbey from The Church and Brian Jonestown Massacre's Ricky Maymi are here in Auckland playing a gig. Further to that, Mr Maymi, and his dear friend - the ever excellent DJ Phoebe Fox - have agreed to pop down after the show to get tiddly and spin some tunes with us. Got a problem with that?
Friday 29th July
DJ Jon Bywater 8pm - 11pm
Last time Mr Bywater was in the building / courtyard, there was a frenzy unleashed on our dancefloor / dance-concrete that's rarely been matched. Howling old souls leapt from the speakers, chased by acid-fuelled rockabilly merchants, jazzed up spooks and angular pop tarts. I still can't figure out if the dancefloor was so crazy cause of the tunes or cause Bywater is so dang handsome.
DJ Chewie Lewis 11pm - 2am
This devious punk is probably more famous for bringing down Winston Peters in the famous "ThingeeGate" scandal, but make no mistake, Chewie Lewis is one to watch. We're pleased as punch to have him back diddling our dials, turning our cogs, and making music sound young again. Amen brother.
Saturday 30th July
Dolly Party & Lord Sebastien Flyte 8pm - 11pm
Freshly returned from their "Round The World in 80 Days" type balloon adventure, it's the impossibly well dress twosome that know how best to shimmy while we shake! Dolly has promised to bring a selection of her newly acquired vintage cake tins, while Lord Seb-Fly has procured a new kind of Moroccan hair-wax that allows his quiff to ride all the higher. Rad!
Mr Crawley 11pm - 2am
Sunday 31st July
Locally Left Debate 5.30pm - 7.30pm
With Jacinda Ardern (Labour MP)
David Slack (Political Commentator)
& Patrick Reynolds (Photographer)
All riled up about ‘the Man’ reigning down on you, think it’s time the world knew your views on politics…..or just want a pint and a bit of a laugh? Have all your needs catered for at Locally Left, a political pub debate with a panel of locals talking about all the recent happenings in the world of politics….and the world generally.
This week will feature a bit of chat about capital gains tax, transport in our city (yes it’s crap, but what do we do about it?) and what’s been happening on the international scene. BYO opinion!
