On March 12 2011 the Wunderbar plays host to some of Christchurch’s best up-and-coming alt-country/folk artists. Playing at the show is the Unfaithful Ways – one of New Zealand's finest up-and-coming country/folk groups.

This group is far too good to be kept a secret and (as will come as no surprise to their faithful legion of fans), the Unfaithful Ways are making their mark on the national music scene in a big way. Recent gigs have included last year’s APRA silver scroll awards, the 2011 Big Day Act, and supporting gigs for such international acts (to name but one or two) as Band of Horses and Justin Townes Earl. Even those talent scouts at EMI are in on the secret, having just snapped this group up on a recording contract.

Think that's overstating the case? Consider what Mike Chunn had to say - "Belief is a word that flies around, too often misused. The Unfaithful Ways have a musical belief that both stands above the parapets and sneaks along between the lines. A self-belief that is clearly indicated in their very strong and buoyant songs. This is no bullshit." - Mike Chunn.

Also on the Wunderbar bill is the alt-folk duo, The Tiny Lies (pictured). The Tiny Lies, Charlotte Ivey and Harley Williams, are currently recording their debut EP under the experienced wing of Adam McGrath from The Eastern. The Tiny Lies' songs draw on traditional folk subjects (love and story-telling) but inflect their subject matter with a unique melancholy and take on themes of loss and loneliness. With a live and deceptively simple sound - Williams plays acoustic guitar, Ivey harmonica, both contribute to vocals – the Tiny Lies are, as with any good musical duo, far more than the sum of their parts.

Last, but by no means least, Tim Moore will be taking to the Wunderbar stage. Tim is well known in Christchurch as a member of Pirate-Country band, Von Klap. This time, however, Tim will be playing a solo set using his own material. For those who didn't know, Moore is a well-respected songwriter in the Christchurch music community and is an unfortunately rare sight at the Wunderbar. So consider yourself lucky and come and catch him solo and live while you have the chance.

All this for a mere $5 door charge!
Show starts at 10pm till late.
