This weekend at Moon in Newtown, right across the road from little ole Flying Nun HQ, Jay Clarkson & The Containers will be performing LIVE! LIVE! LIVE! with support from Cookie Brooklyn & The Crumbs. Tickets are available right over here from the champs at UTR.
Cookie Brooklyn & The Crumbs, made of Nell Thomas, Erika Grant and Mark Williams, will bring a "meld of skitterish post-punk energy and vocal harmony" to the proceedings. To auralise that description, check out their latest video for Top Hat And Funny Face; filmed at Masterton's A&P Show last year:
Honestly, I don't think anyone put it better than zzz wy in the video's comment section:
This weekend is the perfect time! As long as the apocalypse doesn't end between now and Saturday of course - fingers crossed!
For their part, Jay Clarkson & The Containers also have a new video out. This is Far:
Filmed by Paul Kean at the Elephant Rocks, Waitaki Valley. Edited by Sam Clarkson. Jay Clarkson - Guitar & Vocals; Mike Dooley - Drums; Alan Haig - Keyboards; Tenzin Mullin - Bass.
Make sure you head along to Moon this Saturday!
Also ICYMI: A couple weeks back we got Jay Clarkson to answer a few questions and shed light on some unearthed photos we found in the Nun archives. It's a great read! Check out the article here.
