Returning from the success of last year’s incredible sell-out reopening of Auckland’s St James Theatre, A Weird Night Out is back! On Friday 8 July, the Weird Together collective continue their annual promise of transforming an unusual space into a totally unique party experience for one special night only.
The Mahatma Gandhi Centre, centrally placed on Auckland’s New North Road will play the perfect venue to host Weird Together’s globally-minded musical and visual aesthetic. The city fringe venue will be completely transfigured into a multi-room explosion of sights, sounds, art and culture from all corners of the globe by Ella Mizrahi from Celery Productions, who adds her ingenious touch to the Weird proceedings for the fourth year in a row.
Fresh off the back of releasing their new single 'Ready For This' which has already been play listed and charted on Spotify’s Overall Global and US Viral charts, Weird Together will be launching their all-new live show with not only the full-sensory live experience they've become renowned for, but also a summers worth of new studio material to debut.
A Weird Night Out will also feature an appearance by New Zealand music legend Leonard Charles & friends, who will pay a rare live-performance tribute to legendary Hip Hop artist J-Dilla's landmark release ‘Donuts’. Concord Dawn’s Matthew Harvey will showcase his brand new bassline heavy house music project Coldwater. Weird Together are also proud to be teaming up with Red Bull Music Academy Radio and legendary MC, Radio Host and Fat Freddy's hypeman Slave for his notorious Logg Cabin. Slave will be bringing his infamous Red Bull Music Academy Radio show to the live arena, with an all-star cast of top-secret guests plucked from the archives.
“Over the last few years we've been dedicated to bringing back the spirit of mid 90’s rave culture by taking over some of Auckland's most unique spaces and filling them with a little bit of magic. Off the back of our St James event we knew we had to come with something special this year”, Weird Together’s Nick Dwyer says. “We've been eyeing up the Mahatma Gandhi Centre for a while now and so it's with the greatest of delight we have assembled some of our favorite artists to join us in what will be another one of those weird nights out to remember!"
