SEA MOUSE ‘RATTLE YOUR BONES’ TOUR

After 2 years of recording and performing in Wellington, the ferociously energetic band Sea Mouse are taking their hard-hitting, modern blues rock ‘n’ roll to throughout New Zealand over March, April and May 2019 on the ‘Rattle Your Bones’ Tour.

Nothing portrays Sea Mouse ’s hard-hitting, well-hewn anthems more than the thunderous and visceral nature of the live performance. The trio have a knack for shaking up a room and summoning your inner animal - hold onto your hats, it’s going to get loud.

TICKETS ON SALE below.

Common Room, Hawke’s Bay, March 9th

The Stomach, Palmerston North, March 23rd

Meow, Wellington, April 18th

Whammy Backroom, Auckland, April 20th

Lyttelton Records, Christchurch, April 26th

Dharma Bums Club, Wairau Valley, April 27th

Paisley Stage, Napier, May 3rd

Lucky Bar, Whanganui, May 4th

Definitely an album of the year candidate for us here at Blind Tiger. A smooth delivery of far eastern sounds mixed together with snappy R&B back beats. A true gem of a album. Check out their KEXP performance. Go on , you wont regret it.

KURT VILE & THE VIOLATORS

Screen Shot 2018-09-14 at 2.28.47 PM.png

Last here in January 2016, Philadelphia singer and songwriter supreme Kurt Vile is bringing his Violators back to New Zealand, and the timing couldn’t be better if we’d planned it… 

Kurt Vile and the Violators play The Powerstation in Auckland on April 11 and The Hunter Lounge in Wellington on April 13, hot on the heels of his sprawling, just-announced new album, Bottle It In. 

In 2013, the city of Philadelphia named August 28th Kurt Vile Day, and now we’re announcing a couple of dang Kurt Vile days of our own. This is gonna be good.
