Good Habits 'Going For Broke' Album Release Tour

The Raumati Social Club, 34 Poplar Ave, Raumati South

View map

Composed of singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and accordionist Pete Shaw, Good Habits create folk-infused songs that test the limits of their traditional instruments. Fusing folk and jazz within their original songwriting, the eclectic duo present an upbeat yet intimate sound-world of musical storytelling.

Covid-19 left them stranded in New Zealand, but thanks to the warmth and support of new friends, they have made the most of NZ’s triumphant recovery. During their hibernation in Paekākāriki, they captured the collection of songs from their travels.

'Going For Broke' represents their leap of faith as Good Habits pursue their musical dreams on the other side of the world. The album adds more stories to the duo’s growing scrapbook of musical adventures, the songs revolve around themes of travels and encounters, from ‘See How the Evening Goes’ (about the spark that provoked the duo’s big adventure) through to ‘Racing the Hour Hand’ (embodying the urgency found within their creative process).

Darren Watson - Getting Sober For The End Of The World Tour

St Peters Hall, Cnr Beach Rd and Ames St, Paekakariki

View map

Beloved Aotearoa folk-blues musician Darren Watson is releasing his new album Getting Sober For The End Of The World on October 1. And he's hitting the road to bring it to you across the country all October-long!

The album tells a diverse range of stories in song - from the upbeat title track about giving up the party life just as Earth seems about to end, to the poignant ballad of 'Ernie Abbott'. In 1984 Abbott, Wellington Trades’ Hall caretaker, was murdered in one of New Zealand’s most infamous acts of domestic terrorism. The case is still unsolved and Watson exquisitely asks “…who put Ernie Abbot’s soul in God’s hands?”
