It's the first day of New Zealand Music Month, and nzherald.co.nz is proud to be able to bring you one of the first events out of the gate.
NZ Music Month will be officially opened with Lawrence Arabia performing live at Britomart's Takutai Square from 12:30pm. Then in the evening we are live streaming the synth/guitar band showcase from Tyler Street Garage, featuring She's So Rad, Paquin and Delete Delete.
This is the first of seven "Beck's Sets" showcases happening during NZ Music Month.
Between bands we'll be playing songs from Lawrence Arabia's daytime set, as well as live interviews with all the bands performing.
The first band is on at 8:30pm, but we'll be streaming from 8pm - the same time doors open if you want to come down and watch live.
