Love is in the air, apparently, so let's celebrate the chemical reaction that happens when we see the one we care for. Also, love is not always in the air, so let's celebrate being sad and alone and miserable with a ton of break up songs! All brought to you by our own wonderful door-girl-and-so-much-more... CC! 7pm - late
Wednesday 15th February ~ DJ Jack Beanstalk
The big man is back on campus, and he's ready to P-A-R-T-Y. That spells party. Are you ready to party? What is partying anyway? I've never quite understood its exact meaning as a verb, but I think you just kinda know when you're doing it. Words aside, we'll see you here for some good times. 7pm - late
Thursday 16th February ~ DJ Aroha & friends
Aroha is one of our fair city's favourite DJs, so it's about time she came and had a little spin, eh? Part dirty rocker, part electronica enthusiast, and full time party person, we're excited to finally have Aroha behind the wheel!8pm - close

Saturday 18th February ~ DJs Andrew Tidball, Talor & Dave
What else is left to say about Mr Andrew Tidball? He's the Don! Owner operator at our web-friends www.cheeseontoast.co.nz! And with a stack of records taller than Jack, who is DJing earlier in the week. And is super tall. It iz party time!
8pm - 11pm
DJs Talor Made & Dave Funbags are two scamps you'll recognise from about the place. They don't actually have homes, so we've taken them to letting them sleep in amongst our kegs in exchange for playing Jimi Hendrix records late at night for us. Do them a favour and dance, they'll feel better about their lives... 11pm - close
Sunday 19th February ~ "Wine & Sound" with Jo Burzynska
The Golden Dawn invites you to discover the surprising synergies between wine and sound in this multi-sensory tasting experience hosted by NZ Herald wine columnist and sound artist, Jo Burzynska (aka Stanier Black-Five).
Through pairing a diverse selection of our favourite wines with a curious variety of musics, Jo will explore the harmonies and discords that can be created by different combinations and illustrate how the perception of a wine’s flavours can be altered by what we’re listening to when we drink it.
This truly unique event is a first for The Golden Dawn (Tavern of Power)... Don’t miss Wine & Sound - seats are limited. Tickets $25 (including all wine samples) from www.undertheradar.co.nz ~ 8pm - late
