DARTZ Announce Auckland Show At Whammy Bar

Winners of the inaugural SRN Award for Favourite Group, Wellington’s DARTZ are heading back up north to headline Tāmaki Makaurau’s infamous home of punk rock Whammy Bar this May, smack dab in the middle of NZ Music Month. Making everybody hungry with their chart-topping, dumpling-craving take on The Mutton Birds’ ‘Dominion Road’, you know exactly where the band’s Danz, Crispy, Rollyz and Clark Mathews will be having a munch once they wrap up what’s guaranteed to be a ripper of a gig. Don’t miss the 2021 Silver Scroll shortlisted combo on 14th May (including “as-yet-unheard songs from DARTZ’s legendary unrecorded and unreleased debut album”) with supports to be revealed soon…

“Me and the other DB’s (DARTZ Boys) can’t wait to get back to the City of Sails. There are three things on the agenda team: Number one, play a shit hot show at the Whammy Bar and do some big rock music business for our adoring DARTZ fans. Number two, eat as many dumplings as humanly possible in the time that we’re in your beautiful city. Number three, 1 outs the god damn walking boy statue.” — Danz

Press release:

The band from Wellington, New Zealand are coming in steaming hot off the back of their recent release Dominion Road (Dumpling House), a frenzied PUNK ROCK retelling of the Mutton Birds’ Kiwi classic which shot to #1 on the BFM and SRN charts and, among other accolades, received the official Donald Bain McGlashan firm handshake of approval.

DARTZ fans can expect a blistering headline set from the most well-oiled entertainment machine that this country has to offer, including:

– Fan favourite bangerzzz 40 Riddiford Street, Toyota Corolla, + many more

– Live debuts of as-yet-unheard songs from DARTZ’s legendary unrecorded and unreleased debut album

– Onstage banter so pithy and waggish that you will suspect it was scripted by the Bard himself

– A sharp finish so that the boys can hoon it down Dominion Rd for a feast at the Balmoral shops (you can still order beer at Gogos Music Cafe if you get there before 12:30am)
