April 21, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm NZST


Two of Christchurch’s favourite globetrotting songwriters Andrew Keoghan and Flip Grater, will present a very special homecoming show April 21, performing songs from their recently released, critically acclaimed albums.

Blue Smoke will be open from 5pm and serving up The Brewery‘s wood fired pizza and hand crafted Cassels & Sons beer all night long.

Doors for the show will be at 7:30pm

The show will get underway at 8pm.

It’s Los Angeles-based Keoghan’s first outing in the garden city since his LP Every Orchid Offering was released last year.

‘If anything, it reminds me of David Bowie’s similarly genreless ? or the work of Kirin J Callinan, but possessed by an exquisite chamber-pop grace befitting Grizzly Bear or Dirty Projectors’. – Stereogum

Keoghan will be joined by drummer Alistair Deverick (Neil Finn, Lawrence Arabia) and bassist Cass Basil (Tiny Ruins).  

For Flip Grater, the evening marks a welcome return to the stage after a year’s maternity leave. She’ll perform a slew of news songs and those from 2014’s Pigalle.

‘The fourth album from the New Zealander is beguilingly peaceful and impresses, with little auditory adventures that reflect her chosen home of Paris and also her artistic integrity’ – Rolling Stone Germany
