The band rotunda at Auckland's Albert Park will again host a selection of new and (kinda) older bands for the annual 95bFM Summer Series.
Kody & Bic, the unexpected collaboration between Bic Runga and The Mint Chicks' Kody Neilson will headline the afternoon concert, which takes place on Saturday 5th March.
The pair played a well-received debut set at the recent Big Day Out, with TimeOut editor Russell Baillie writing: "there might be only two of them but don't lack for noise.
They sound like The Flaming Lips meets The Carpenters. Sorta."
The idea for the double act came from the pair working together on Runga's next album, which Neilson is producing.
Auckland three-piece Popstrangers are also on the bill. The band (like all the lineup, really) are bFM favourites and are working towards their debut album, having already released two EPs. Keep on eye on nzherald.co.nz in early March for more on these guys.
This will be the 21st anniversary of the Summer Series.
