‘An evening alone with Lawrence Arabia’ should be on your calendar as a must see show.
Why? Because he is among the greatest of NZ musicians – a recipient of many prestigious awards such as the APRA Silver Scroll for ‘Apple Pie Bed’ (co-written with The Phoenix Foundation’s Lukasz Buda), the Taite Music Prize for Chant Darling, a Tui for Best Solo Male Album for Sparrow, followed by a four star review of the same album by UK’s magazine, Mojo. Not to mention the international record deals and collaborations with musicians such a Liam Finn and Connan Mockasin.
The other reason why this show should be on your calendar as a must see show, is that his songs are bloody good and he is a top notch artist/performer/writer.
You can also read more about the event here: in his own words.
The intimacy of Princes Gate’s Monarch Room is the perfect setting to relax with Lawrence Arabia and his collection of songs over a 10 year period. I hope you can stow away $15 to buy your ticket.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.

DEBUT NZ TOUR FOR SOUTH AFRICAN GUITAR LEGEND
“Guy Buttery is something of a National treasure”, says South Africa’s leading newspaper The Mercury.
As an internationally recognized musician, this multi-instrumentalist enjoys invitations to play sell-out performances all over the globe. The USA, UK, Australia, France, Brazil, and Italy have all welcomed him back year after year. For the very first time, this multi-award winning luminary will be visiting New Zealand with numerous concerts on both North and South Island.
To simply label Guy Buttery as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. His international role has surpassed merely performing concerts to foreign audiences. It has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with his home-grown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity.
Guy’s distinct unification of South African guitar music is the musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place he calls home. At the age of 18, Guy Buttery’s debut album was nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ and ‘Best Instrumental’ at the South African Music Awards (SAMA’s) making him the youngest nominee in the history of the event. Guy then went on to collect two SAMA’s in 2010 and again in 2014. He has also received numerous other major National accolades including The Standard Bank Ovation Award for his live performances at the National Arts Festival, and has been honoured with more of these prestigious awards than any other artist. Guy was then invited to perform his works with the 52-piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, dubbed “Africa’s greatest ensemble” with his solo performance voted “Top Live Show” by The Cape Times and was selected by the public as one of South Africa’s Top Young Personalities by The Mail & Guardian.
Buttery has also worked and toured with an incredible myriad of artists including Dave Matthews, Jethro Tull, Missy Higgins, Salif Keita, The Violent Femmes, Kaki King, Kelly Joe Phelps and countless others. The media has cited him “as one of the finest exponents of the acoustic guitar in the World.”
Expect high dynamics, deep grooves, delicate African inflections and mind-bending guitar playing of an entirely new order. “Guy Buttery’s goal is to stretch the boundaries of fingerstyle guitar to their outermost limits. THE most diverse and intriguing fingerstyle artist.” – Guitar Player Magazine FULL TOUR DETAILS BELOW:

“… his music has a subtle grace and power all of its own. Though his technical prowess is bewildering, Buttery immerses himself entirely into the soul of his guitar, coaxing sonic shapes and forms of such startling originality from it that his instrument acts as a kind of lightning conductor for the sound of another realm.” – The Mail & Guardian

I am thrilled to announce Ben Salter’s return to The Rogue Stage in a few weeks. This is an album release tour of his new album ‘Back Yourself’.
You can watch ‘Isolationism’ – released April 2017, here: https://youtu.be/sjqtbEB_2jY
His first show with us was in our garden, on a home made stage, performing for a small group of people. His songs filled the night sky with utter brilliance. An outstanding performance, magnificent songs and an artist whom you beg not to finish.
Ben Salter has collaborated, written and performed with artists as diverse as Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Temperance Union), Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger), Gareth Liddiard (The Drones) and Marlon Williams, to name a few. He has toured with acts such as Cat Power, J Mascis, Gareth Liddiard, Counting Crows, Marlon Williams and most recently Built To Spill.
For this upcoming show, Ben is joined by Callum Gentleman and Alicesea (Mt Manganui).

Friends return to The Rogue Stage on Sunday for a feisty ‘stage off’! Albi and the Wolves take on Looking for Alaska for this unusual twist on a live music show.
For one weekend only, Looking For Alaska NZ and Albi and The Wolves will be piling into a van and heading to Gisborne, Hastings and Rotorua to take to the stage for battle!
Armed only with a guitar, a fiddle and an upright bass, Albi & The Wolves’ high energy blend of swing, bluegrass, soul, r&b, rock and world music will be sure to get everyone’s toes tapping. But Looking For Alaska are ready to meet the challenge, and get the audience on their feet with their thigh-slapping, foot-stomping folk sing-alongs before bringing them to their knees with their poignant heart-rending ballads.
Who will win over the audience?? You’ll just have to come along and find out…
Performing in the beautiful Monarch Room hosted by The Rogue Stage, doors open at 6:30 with music starting at 7.
