The night was MC-ed by Melbourne-based Londoner Lotek, but also on hand were fellow collaborators on the album, Christina Roberts, Israel Starr, and the star turn (for me) saxophonist, Andy Qroniq (aka Andy Pearce).
The Boat Café is a relatively new venue on the Wellington live music scene but it strikes me that the lower deck area/room (of the docked tugboat on Oriental Parade) might just about be one of the most sound-friendly spaces on the circuit. Certainly the room coped admirably with the bass-heavy bottom-end treats being conjured up on the night, and I doubt I’ll attend a louder gig all year. As venues go, it was very impressive.
