There’s so many great looking shows happening across Aotearoa this weekend, particularly in and around Pōneke where the seated gigs will clearly be pumping over the next few days. Highlights from this week’s batch include the week-long multi-venue Pūoro Tū Festival – adventures in Māori instruments and sound (full lineup details HERE), the conclusion of Lake South‘s nationwide album launch tour in Gisborne and Hastings, Solo Ono and Once You Know‘s double EP release gig at Vogelmorn Bowling Club, The Broken Heartbreakers at Oamaru’s Grainstore Gallery and lots more.

Don’t forget that masks and social distancing are required under Alert Level 2, but gigs are no longer capped at a specific number of attendees — check out the updated Level 2 guidelines for bars HERE and for events / entertainment HERE.
