There’s no shortage of shindigs to get you out of the house and into the streets of Wellington this weekend. Here’s a quick run-down of what we’ve circled with our highlighter.
The New Zealand International Film Festival continues and included is the world premiere of Fantail. Rachel and Rebecca made some picks in last week’s Trailer Tuesday. Also in film this weekend is the fundraising screening of documentary Maidentrip about kiwi-born Laura Dekker’s solo adventure around the world aboard yacht Guppy. Proceeds to Wellington Ocean Sports.
One of Wellington’s best and formerly hidden treasure troves of Zines and art, Matchbox Studios has a grand opening at its new street front location.
The next round of New Zealand’s Got Talent auditions stop into the St James.
Museum of Wellington City & Sea continue with their L!VE Music sessions on Sunday.
Wellington’s gonna get a pop-up chocolate factory on Queens Wharf this weekend – YUM! If you need more convincing their website has a puppy picture.
Newtown’s National Hockey Stadium will host matches between Capital & Southern.
The always thought-provoking World Press Photos exhibition is in town and hanging out on Willis Street.
If you haven’t had a chance to yet Young & Hungry is in its last weekend at Bats. It’s well worth the outing.
In new music for the playlist this week Indie band Typhoon, from Portland Oregon, have released a sneak peak of their new album White Lighter. They’re a bit of a well kept secret and it’s not really a sneak-peak it’s a peak in entirety. If you’re a fan of indie bands like the Fleet Foxes, Beirut, Boy & Bear, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Band of Horses etc we reckon you’ll dig these guys.
Have a good one!
