AMP DISPATCH 03: Auckland Sideshows and R15 change for Christchurch
SOUTHERN AMP COMES NORTH ANNOUNCING EXCLUSIVE AUCKLAND SIDE-SHOWS!
The South Island's favourite multi-stage festival Southern Amp takes a road trip to the North this year with the announcement of a series of exclusive and very limited capacity side-shows in Auckland featuring the various international visitors and some of our own local acts from the Southern Amp 09 bill.
The Christchurch festival being held on Thursday 12th November is already on sale with the solid uptake of earlybird tickets from just $69.50 still going strong.
Also confirmed today the original R18 restriction on the Chch festival has been changed to R15 as in all previous years. Apologies for the confusion to all you 15-nearly 18 year old music fans and Earlybird tix will still be on offer as a result until October 7th...
But in the spirit of all good festivals, Southern Amp are giving a very limited number of Auckland fans who can’t make the trip down to the South Island the chance to catch the main acts in their own town as SAmp 09 makes its first small steps North. The first two Southern Amp 09 side-shows off the rank will both be held at the newly refurbished and recently re-opened STUDIO VENUE on Auckland’s K’Road, details as follows:
GRINSPOON / MAMMAL & THE EARLYBIRDS – THE STUDIO K’ROAD – FRIDAY 13th NOVEMBER 7.30pm
Tickets $57.50 (+ bkg fee) from www.eventfinder.co.nz & Real Groovy Queen Street / R18 restricted
BUZZCOCKS ‘ANOTHER….. BITES TOUR’ + Guests – THE STUDIO – SATURDAY 14th NOVEMBER 8.00pm
Tickets $79.50 (+bkg fee) from www.eventfinder.co.nz & Real Groovy Queen Street / R18 restricted

CREATING A BUZZ
Finally Southern Amp can confirm lots of rumours that have created a bit
of a 'buzz' recently (especially after they released details on their own
website last week...) but we are delighted to announce that UK punk heroes
the BUZZCOCKS will be playing loud & fast like guys half their age at SAmp09!
The South Island will be treated to UK pop-punk heroes on their first Mainland
visit since they formed in the heady punk days of 1978 and created a thousand
imitators world-over. With a breakneck set featuring punk classics 'Boredom',
'Ever Fallen in Love', 'I Don't Mind', ‘Orgasm Addict’ and plenty more their
wild stage gyrations, arm swinging and fast guitars will leave ya charged!
