  • Mike,

    Yes the ZM MC was a little out of her element. Her introduction for the Bats came across as a justification for their inclusion on the bill. Clearly she, or ZM assumed that the crowd would have no idea who they were.It was a fun day though.

    In Bats-related trivia, there was a lovely moment during Jens Lekman's recent set opening for Joanna Newsom in Christchurch: aware he was in the Bats' home town, he told his audience he wished he had something as brilliant and simple -- not his exact words, but close enough -- as "Block of Wood".

  • Allan Bollard,

    Parnell Baths closed for about 2 hours, 10-12. It was surreal seeing it at 11am, good enough to drink, and deserted.
