Patrick Donnelly/ May 17, 2019

Upon introduction to The Butlers, I wasn’t a massive fan. After hearing that Mako Road were performing at a charity gig in Christchurch I jumped at the chance to see them, not paying much attention to the other accompanying acts – including The Butlers.

Although New Zealand has a thriving, international reputation for beautiful lakes, impressive mountains and fantastic beaches, it is somewhat under-represented as a source of exciting new music.

The area looked completely different with its own

Priyanka Mistry/ November 10, 2015

The most energetic gig I’ve ever been to. When I arrived at Rock City for the act, the crowd was bustling and ready for a fight; well warmed up by the supporting acts. I have to admit, as someone who has been to a Skindred gig before, I was terrified of having to stand in the pit alone. Thankfully, I

Skindred set to slay Rock City

Priyanka Mistry/ October 27, 2015

Get ready to be amazed by Skindred’s high energy performance in Rock City this November. How would I describe Skindred? They’re a mix of everything you’d ever want from a Rock City gig, energetic, enthusiastic, and totally mesmerising. Having previously seen Skindred in 2011, I’ve been waiting for the chance to see their refreshing live performances again. With their combination
