Fat Freddy Second Matakana Show!

Wednesday 23 January 2008

Fat Freddy's Drop announces the addition of a second show at Music Mountain Matakana on the afternoon of Sunday 24 February.

With barely one hundred tickets remaining for the original show on Saturday 23 February, organisers got the nod to add a Sunday picnic session to the mix at the boutique venue located in pristine native bush north of Auckland.

Gates for the Sunday picnic session will open at the earlier time of 1.30pm. Both shows feature support from FLOWZ and The Usos and DJ’s Mu, Slave, Cian and Thief (Australia) plus Vee on a visit home from London where he runs Elephant Records.

Between recording their new album, Freddy's only summer gig to date has been counting down the clock for The Big Drop Off at Shed 1, Wellington. Expect to hear fresh tunes from the band that has just confirmed two Paris gigs for April with more to follow in London and Lisbon.

DJ Fitchie says "we're not playing too many gigs this summer and we've picked a good one with Matakana. We're really looking forward to the Bush Party shows, the best tunes we're playing are the new ones, and there's a golf course next door.”
