It’s… holiday time!

Here’s a slice of what’s on in Welly-hood this weekend to kick your holidays off with some excitement and/or amazement.

The Company NZ are presenting Block Party up on the hill at Wellington High School – it’s a showcase extravaganza from this super talented dance school. Not to be confused with Bloc Party. Here’s a sweet video of the tutors busting some moves.

Oceania’s two most Hipster* cities Wellington and Melbourne clash in derby time on the water front. Bust out the Purple and orange.

Au Contraire, the New Zealand Science Fiction and Fantasy convention, is in town. It comes with cool stuff like a floating market.

Something a bit different and enriching for the ears? Gale Force Gospel are putting on a concert of African American Song.

In theatre The Legend Of Hector visits BATS. “Drawing from sources as diverse as the Arthurian Legends, an old friend’s travel blog, and toilet-wall graffiti, The Legend of Hector goes right to the heart of the moments we feel most epic, and the moments we desperately wish for greater adventures.” – That sounds awesome!

Looking for something to watch? Here’s a list compiled by Rachel & Rebecca to quell your winter blues.

In playlist news Jay-Z released new album Magna Carta… Holy Grail  this week – you can judge that one for yourself. His wife Beyonce announced a tour to our shores. Australian folksters Boy & Bear are gearing up to release new album Harlequin Dream in August and here’s a track off it to chill to – ‘Southern Sun’.
