So, The Wedding Present will play live for the first time ever in New Zealand this weekend coming. Good news. When I was at uni I got pretty obsessed with the Hit Parade 1 and Hit Parade 2 compilations; I was given them on tape. Also, of course, the album George Best.
So I’m looking forward to seeing the band on Saturday night, Feb 23, at The San Francisco Bath House. They will, by then, have played Auckland’s Kings Arms on Thursday, Feb 21. (See here for some more details).
But, special treat for Wellington fans, the band will also be performing an instore at Slow Boat Records at 2.00pm, Saturday, Feb 23. A little teaser/taster before the main event/course later that evening.
Expect to see anoraks lined up down Cuba St clutching their copies of George Best (the LP).
Very good times indeed. Here’s the official Facebook event/invite.
