Time to bring LBM back into the present tense and no better way to do that than to get the gears rolling again on our offline events. Particularly, one of the hottest series of the year – the Gulou Double Decker, now in it’s seventh incarnation, and from the looks of it, we’ve got a winner on our hands. Brother-in-arms, Dada and Temple, trade bodily fluids once again with a red hot showcase presented by LBM and pbr. Upstairs, at the Virgin Mary’s favorite joint to find tender love, Temple, we’ve got three ripe, hungry young bands looking to cut their teeth, including instrumental math rock outfit Rhonda, as well as shoegaze brain fryers Boiled Hippo, and Juju Band, a band I’ve picked entirely based on their three available tracks on douban. Feeling the faith yet? Meanwhile, downstairs at Hades\’s summer retreat Dada, DJ sets from two of the biggest names to have sprung up from the New Zealand underground: Nick Harte, aka DFA Records/Flying Nun\’s Shocking Pinks, and \”house(party)hold name\” Ian Jorgensen, aka Blink, founder of legendary NZ label + event promoter + festival + publishing house A Low Hum; with more forays into the strange and electronic with Charm and School Girl Report. Class\’s in session and it’s time to find solace in the sweet sweet nectar that is Gulou Double Decker. Bottoms up!
