Dunedin's Kane Strang will be bringing the tousled charm of his off-kilter indie-rock songs to Christchurch Art Gallery for the evening.
Support from Candice and Jack.
The Yealands Wine Bar will be serving up Peter Yealand's wines and Three Boys Brewery beer for the evening.

Kane Strang’s first proper album, the Pitchfork certified Blue Cheese, picks up on the rough disaffection of his earlier demo collection, A Pebble and a Paper Crane, which he recorded in a Second World War bomb shelter in Germany.

Back in his hometown of Dunedin, Strang spent two solitary months housesitting for his parents. Re-nested, yet still isolated, Strang composed Blue Cheese over those quiet days.

Opening track 'The Web' channels pummeling bass lines punctuated by a twinkling synth that calls upon microscopic pop principalities of restlessness ('Yeah, I met someone else / Without leaving my little house / No, I haven’t held her yet / I met her on the internet'). Its abrupt ending parallels his own disconnect. 'She’s Appealing' weaves dayglo guitar motifs into distant, detached eighties garage-pop vocals. 'Never Kissed a Blonde' is driven by a slapping delay on both vocals and guitar. Strang’s path toward a melody is always surprising, and he never misses a hit-on-the-head-obvious-in-retrospect memorable line.
