In Wellington and no plans for the New Year’s Eve?
Farewell of The Bath House: Phoenix Foundation and Hang The DJ
Wellington’s iconic venue The San Francisco Bath House is saying farewell to 2013 with two great shows on the one night. And it’s not just farewell to 2013 from the Bath House – it is in fact a farewell from The Bath House.
Under The Radar presents: New Year’s Eve – “Farewell of the Bath House” with The Phoenix Foundation followed by the popular Hang The DJ set from Atomic and 24 Hour Party People DJ Bill E.
Wellington’s great live music venue is going to say goodbye with one hell of a party – two very special guests, two acts with a long and storied relationship with the Bath House.
So this New Year’s Eve it’s goodbye to the Bath House – the venue is to undergo an exciting NYEredevelopment; it’s going to transform into something new, something very special, so it’s a case of watch this space.
Tickets for the New Year’s Eve “Farewell of The Bath House” gig are on sale through Undertheradar.co.nz $40+bf for the whole show presale or $45 on the night (that’s for both acts) or it’s $20 for those arriving after 11pm when the Phoenix Foundation set concludes.
Doors will open at 8.00pm, Phoenix Foundation on stage at 9.30pm sharp. Bill E on from after 11pm through until the wee smalls…
A must-see gig – two must-see gigs! – for so many reasons.

The Phoenix Foundation were nominated to three Vodafone NZ Music Awards, but unfortunately got non of them. I really hoped they’d get the Best Album of the Year or Best Alternative Album. However, the band got a lot of shout outs from some presenters and awarded like Bret McKenzie (during the interview on the red carpet), Shapeshifter or Madeleine Sami, which was very cool.
Good thing is, that TPF have finally set up their account on Instagram!
I didn’t want to leave this update without any award. Huge congratulations to Lawrence Arabia for winning Best Male Solo Artist of the Year!
Phoenix Foundation break out the suits
A rare opportunity to wear a suit and catch up with friends in the industry is what The Phoenix Foundation’s Sam Scott is looking forward to at tonight’s New Zealand Music Awards.
The indie rock band is nominated for Best Group, as well as Album of the Year and Best Alternative Album for Fandango, released earlier this year.
The Phoenix Foundation has already won Best Producer for Fandango, their fifth studio album, and first double album.
While the music industry has changed a lot since the band first started out, all the members are still able to work solely doing music.
“Chris is off playing drums with Neil Finn in America at the moment which is pretty awesome.
“Everyone does various music things to make ends meet, but all of us are just making music, so I think we’re pretty lucky.”
In the lead up to this year’s Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards we have asked some of the finalists to share their personal New Zealand music mixtapes, including all-time favourites or current picks. (…)
Have a listen to songs from some of The Phoenix Foundation’s favourite New Zealand artists.

Something I wasn’t expecting to hear about any time soon, that’s why this news made me very excited, anxious and happy. Here’s hoping to hear more about it on their facebook page.
