Bit by bit Christchurch is nudging things back to 'normal' and getting it's groove back on. Out of town bands are (finally) seeing the city as a viable place to tour and the drought is coming to an end. This is due to the fact that new venues have been opening up over the last few months. Whether it's through foresight, luck or just people taking a punt, I couldn't be happier that those involved are just getting on with it and making it happen.
The Brewery is currently the best venue on offer for music lovers, but I'm looking forward to seeing what The Archive and also the new Dux venue will bring to the mix.
The Arts Festival has got some fantastic bands coming and at only $20 max I'll be taking in whatever shows I can.
There's not a great deal on this week, some stuff, but only a couple of gigs really worth a mention in my opinion...
