Dominic “Tourettes” Hoey and Skyscraper Stan 8 Nov

Posted on

Poet & Singer songwriter – Wednesday 8 Nov

Tremendous joy to welcome back Dominic “Tourettes” Hoey to The Rogue Stage! Last seen at Waiotapu Folk Fest, Hoey delivered a spell bounding set of contemporary poetry. I remember cascading strips of ripped verse, the moments of held breath and the audience bursting into bouts of laughter. He is back with his latest novel ‘Iceland’ and poetry to inspire you.

Accompanying Hoey, is singer songwriter Skyscraper Stan. Last Year’s Tune – released 2015, is an album I adore. Great lyrics and a voice which draws you in. His live performance at Nivara Lounge, Hamilton, is still up there with my favourite live performances thus far.

Tickets are $10 pre-sale online at undertheradar.co.nz or by pre-booking your seat at theroguestage@gmail.com. You can also wait until the night of the show, $15 on the door.

Hosted in the Monarch Room at Prince’s Gate.

Official press release:

Dominic “Tourettes” Hoey and Skyscraper Stan New Zealand Tour 2017

Poet and novelist Dominic “Tourettes” Hoey is hitting the road this November to promote his bestselling novel “Iceland”. Joining him will be Australian based singer songwriter “Skyscraper” Stanley Woodhouse.

Dominic performs a mix of political satire and absurdist observations wrapped up in poetry. Stan croons a lyrical travelogue dripping with sarcasm, whimsy and wit. Differing vastly in their chosen media, both artists share a love for the English language and command a room with their rapid-fire social commentary.

The 17 date tour will see them hitting all the main centres and places as remote as Okaritio, Golden Bay and Moutere.

This year has seen Dominic release his debut novel “Iceland” which stayed on the NZ best seller list for over a month. He also performed a sold out run of his one-man show “Your Heart Looks like A vagina” a black comedy about his journey with autoimmune disease.

Before turning his hand to literature and theatre, Dominic was a rapper releasing 5 critically acclaimed studio albums, sharing stages with everyone from Sam Hunt to Homebrew and touring the world.

Stanley Woodhouse is returning to New Zealand for the first and only time in 2017 after his full band tour, appearance in “Bowie – Waiting in the Sky” and NZ album release last year.

A child of Auckland, he currently resides in regional Victoria and tours Australia’s coasts year round. His debut album Last Year’s Tune is available through Southbound.

Graeme James live at The Rogue Stage 17 June!

Posted on Updated on

“A man that must surely be poised to take over the New Zealand folk-music scene at any minute”- Libel

Hitting the highways once again this winter is award-winning folk troubadour Graeme James.

2016 was an exciting year for the artist who released his debut original album News From Nowhere in September to great acclaim. The album was a finalist for the NZ Folk Album of The Year and the lead single ‘Alive’ gained second place in the Folk Category of the prestigious international Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition.

Evidence of his endless hard work and hours spent on the road, Graeme started his musical journey busking on the streets of Wellington and sleeping in his trusty ‘Hotel Corona’. These stories and experiences have shaped his captivating and unmissable live show featuring electric fiddle, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, beatboxing, harmonica, mandolin and his velveteen vocals all with the help of a trusty loop pedal.

Graeme’s last tour almost sold out completely nationwide, so get it quick to hear the songs you love and a couple of newbies.

Please note that doors are open from 7 pm, and the music will begin at 7.30pm. Buy tickets online at eventfinda.co.nz.

The venue for this show is Prince’s Gate Hotel, in the lovely Monarch Room, Rotorua. Entrance on Hinemaru Street.

Fully licensed bar and light meals from Prince’s Gate.

Tea n Happiness will provide vegan treats n drinks. EFTPOS available.
