Albi and the Wolves
Looking For Alaska are hitting the road this April in support of their new single “Calling Out,” bringing their tight harmonies and upbeat pop-folk to audiences around New Zealand.
Looking For Alaska offer up a sound rooted in country-style guitar and soaring harmonies woven together at their very fibre, intensified by their magnetic on-stage chemistry.
Having previously performed as a duo and 5-piece band, they have now refined their sound to a hard-hitting trio. They will be returning to Rotorua for the first time since 2017 with their collection of original material, ranging from thigh-slapping, foot-stomping folk sing-alongs, to poignant heart-rending ballads drenched in melancholy.

Joining them for this show are special guests Albi & The Wolves. An amazing 3 piece from Auckland, they play folk music, but not as you know it. No strangers to Rotorua themselves, they have had a stellar year that has seen them perform in Australia and win the Tui for Folk Album of the year and are excited to be returning to Rotorua for what promises to be an amazing night.
Doors open at 7.30pm, with music starting at 8pm. Tickets are $15 presale, $20 on the door. Pre-sale tickets available online from Eventfinda.
