Don't feel sorry for Dave - he's happy with his lot in life. He's got a beautiful family, an enjoyable job, and a formidable record collection. Sure, he's only got two friends in this world, but they're bloody good guys, and they've also got great records in their bedrooms.
Hey Dave, bring your friends, bring your records, and let's have a pretty good time together at The Tavern of Power. Psychedelic punk country rock'n'roll for a rainy evening.
7pm - late / FREE
Wednesday 21st March - DJs Henrietta & Adele
When they're not busily ferreting around in abandoned fun parks for the bones of lost children, Henrietta and Adele are down at the dump, rifling around for the unloved vinyl collections of the elderly, or people moving overseas who can't be bothered storing their records.
You'd be amazed what they've found... and they're coming to have a lot of fun with us this Wednesday, with their ever growing collection towed behind them in matching little red wagons. They'll probably also download some of the "latest tunes" from the internet and play those too. EXCITING.
7pm - late / FREE
Thursday 22nd March - Uni & Her Ukelele (USA)
America's favourite UKE-STAR is returning to New Zealand once again to sprinkle her glittery magic all about the place. Lucky us, she's stopping in at the Golden Dawn this Thursday to brighten the corners for a while!
Uni will be joined by the delight DJs Steve Newall - normally found stirring our pot on a Friday evening, Steve's going all "Thursday night" on us for a change - and King G making his soul-funking Golden Dawn debut! Be there or be a hornless horse.
8pm - close / $5 entry
Friday 23rd March - DJs John Baker & Alan Perrott
Not satisfied with ordinary volume cliches, John Baker will be turning it up to TWELVE on the dial this Friday, cranking out the dirtiest, greasiest, seamiest rock'n'roll, soul, psych, and easy listening jazz your feeble little ears can handle.
Playing the Sapphire to Baker's Steel will be writer, dreamer, and record buff Mr Alan Perrott! The twosome have four hands between them, that's a LOT of vinyl that can be carried. Raw power.
7pm - 2am / FREE
Saturday 24th March - Voom & Lawnmaster (LIVE)
A live performance from Voom is as rare and as vital to the true-blue running of our nation as a jar of Marmite. Imagine my joyful surprise when Nick - Voom's clever-fingers guitarist - asked if they could put on a bit of a last minute show here. I said yes, of course. Don't miss this - Voom won't be playing together again for bloody ages.
Also braving the stage will be Wellingtons roguish pop upstarts Lawnmaster, featuring Mr Ken Double and his band of mostly merry men...
Turning the tables before, betwixt and afterwards will be our good friends and expert DJs Darryn Harkness & Phil Kelly!
8pm - late / $5 entry
Sunday 25th March - DJ Daddy O
We love DJ Daddy-O, we love him very much...
5pm - 11pm / FREE
