Tono and the Finance Company

Surprisingly, The Finance Company haven't actually put on our own show in Auckland since our last EP release in the distant past.

So, here's not just a show, but a show set in a dystopic yet awesome future.

That's right, it's in Newmarket - the greatest derelict metropolis in Auckland.

I don't know if you've been to Newmarket lately, but the recession has turned it something different. If I wanted to be specific, I would say it's very reminiscent of Los Angeles circa 2019...

Here are some things that happened in the turbulent past:

-Starbucks - closed down.
-Dan Carter's store - closed down.
-Supre - closed down.
-Lion Nathan - Moved to an off world colony by new owner Asahi (a front for Tyrell Corp).
-Rodney Hide's yellow jacket - impaled on a spike outside the steaming corpse of Supre.

Here's some things that appeared in their place.

-Disturbing public art in the form of mysterious giant eggs.
-Art rapper David Druckman's steampunk mansion.
-Amazing cheap restaurants from around the (now destroyed) world.
-A pimping yet somehow still dystopic rail station.
-Lucha Lounge, the only Christchurch-style venue in Auckland
-Best of all, a secret Russian karaoke bar, with real Russian sailors.

If that's not enough, we will be playing new songs from our future album, and we've abducted fellow exiled South Island band O Lovely, who will play to pay off their indenture to Bar Russia - where we will of course hold our after party.

So get out of your boring RWC friendly suburb (that includes K road and its gentrified bridge), get on the train, or do a Cormac McCarthy style walk to Lucha Lounge.

This show is free to humans and replicants alike.
