Sven Olsen’s Brutal Canadian Love Saga presents The Almanac

The Svens play a slice of their new 40-song ‘magnum hopeless’ about New Zealand, land of laid-back catastrophe. The songs cover the many ways things go wrong in NZ. From bird wrecks to road wrecks, Pharaohs to fraud, rock snot to rogue arborists - it’s all in The Almanac.

The Svens are an 18 piece pop orchestra from Wellington. Their last fringe show – Songs From The Bottom of the Hilltop – played to packed houses.

This 80-minute show – at the Newtown Community Centre - features a string section, choir and wide screen multimedia show.

To complete the experience, a special collectible edition of the songs packaged into a fly swat will be available on the night.

“Our musical mission is to present our nation’s gloom in the most uplifting and inspiring way we possibly can,” say the Svens.
