Lawrence Arabia - Single. Hamilton "POSTPONED"


March 19, 2020



The quest continues: a new year and a new string of solo performances across Aotearoa's cities, towns, and nether regions from Lawrence Arabia, New Zealand's "pre-eminent chronicler of 21st Century bourgeois dilemmas".

Re-imagined, alone and devoid of any buffer and/or musical safety net, Lawrence Arabia will enchant in these intimate settings with nothing other than himself, his collection of pop songs, and a piano.

Triple Threat Tour

8pm Doors

March 20, 2020

Wellington rock veterans Hault will be joining forces with some of the country's rowdiest & loudest acts, taking on 4 North Island dates for The Triple Threat Tour throughout March 2020.

Throughout their career, Hault have been giving the middle finger to the musical norm with their unique brand of heavy music in what can only be described as "The Gen X Sound, That Won't Die Quietly!". Bringing a dash of metal, a splash of heavy rock and a hint of psychedelic influences, they have shared the same stage as international touring acts Korpiklaani (Finland), Wo Fat (USA) and The Iron Maidens (USA), as well as many top local NZ bands.

Since the critical success of their album "Brother" last year, Hault are ready to hit the road to more audiences and melt new faces with an arsenal of new material and familiar hits including "Red Dress" and "Brother".

Second-in-command, Wellington power-rock group axÆon are joining the frontline for all 4 dates. Since 2018, axÆon have been rapidly gaining momentum with their live energy and melodic song writing.

Also locked and loaded to make sure your ears bleed are high energy Auckland-based dirty rock/punk trio, Valiant (AKL/HAM dates only) and hard hitting Palmerston North alt-rock quartet, On The Ledge (WGTN/PAL dates only).

Three bands across four dates. The Triple Threat Tour, it's gonna be LOUD!

Hault, axÆon & Valiant will be playing:
Fri, March 20th: Dead Witch (Ding Dong Lounge), Auckland
