Our kinda people….
Our local, and still one of the best live music venues in the country – has played host to the fledgling White Stripes, Lambchop, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, and most of the best NZ bands for the last 15 years.
Probably now the capital’s premier live music venue, the venue formerly known as Indigo has a massive stage, great PA and has played host to all manner of top-notch international and local acts, including The Kills, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, The Mountain Goats, Jolie Holland, Neko Case – and it has the only balcony looking out onto Cuba Street, which affords a spectacular view of our sign.
