Travesties, City Square and Cavalier & Bremworth

Friday, December 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


UPDATE: There will be no Banjos at this gig.

UPDATE TWO: Due to recent incidents, vegetables offered for payment must be fresh.

The Travesties, City Square, and Cavalier & Bremworth. Pure 100% wool and gender diverse art alt-rock bands.

What’s happening? Three bands playing an alt-rock gig at St Peter’s Hall Paekākāriki 7pm, Friday the 11th of December. Entry on the door ie $5/$10 or by donation of one *fresh* vegetable. The fresh vegetable payment option reflects the vegetable-based economy of Paekākāriki, where payment-by-vegetable is a growing practice or so we are led to believe.

City Square are Kāpiti college students who guitar player, Joseph, describes as “very different people who work well together. We all participate in songwriting and making music, and all have a love for music. We string together sounds and dynamics to form something amazing!”

Cavalier & Bremworth (100% wool) are the musical and aural entertainment branch of the C&B Collective. Spokesperson Angus Moorfoot says “Our music performances are diverse in scope, covering such topics as childhood trauma, parental neglect, mis-identity, late-life crisis and paranormal experiences. All to some funky good-time beats.”

“As a special part of their performance, the Literary branch of the Collective will be launching the chapbook AutisticgrandadZ: An Indexed Catalogue of Fathers. This will include a reading by author Embankment Wallander.”

Paekākāriki underground band, The Travesties will round out the night with what the critics are describing as “… a bigger more open sound and also a new band member.” Baxter Gray, a recent addition to the line-up, was described as “bringing into question the unique eponymous oeuvre previously particular to this band”.

“Fresh from the Paekākāriki garage tour we are venturing into the hall with new material including new polished songs about earthquakes and decor.”

Band member, Sarah added that “supporting young musicians and ensuring the space is shared among genders, makes for an experience that most people can relate to and enjoy”.

If you have any concerns about vegetable payment in Paekākāriki or any other aspects of the upcoming gig, The Travesties would invite you to get all the way off our backs on that. That said we’d love you to come. Bring your own, and don’t forget to bring a fresh vegetable if you want to save on cover charge.
