Cate Le Bon in Wellington. Playing as a duo, with Cate on piano. Quite nice, she was in good voice but it felt a bit samey. My friend who’d never heard her before thought it was great though.
Previously, IDLES at the same venue. Totally rammed, good crowd though. Great set and stage presence. At one point I think the band were slagging off the monarchy, or the British anthem, or maybe colonialism (I’m guessing here) because the crowd started singing the New Zealand national anthem, in Maori. And then everyone stopped dead before the English verse started Nice round of applause from the band in response.
Other highlight was when the guitarist went out into the crowd. On his way back he took his guitar off and put it over my girlfriend, and led her up on stage! So she was there at the end of the set, playing along. (Which would have been better if she was less introverted and we knew the IDLES discography better, but she handled it fine and people were congratulating her afterwards :D).
