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.
