SASKWATCH ***SOLD OUT***

  • Jul 5, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • Corner Hotel

Please note that this gig has now sold out.

Supports have been announced:  New Gods (featuring former members of Little Red) + Jim Lawrie (also known as Grizzly Jim Lawrie) + DJ Fraser A Gorman (I assume just spinning tracks in between bands). Will be a great line-up.

In my humble opinion Saskwatch are one of the best live bands in the country, and I'm sure those who came along to see them last November would agree with me. They put on a high energy mix of funk, soul and pop that is irresistible and guaranteed to get your feet moving. I literally stumbled across them playing live a few years ago and was hugely impressed with what I felt was a fun but derivative style of music, but they have come a long way since then. They have evolved into a band that can stand alone, and their popularity is increasing rapidly with the release of their fantastic new album Nose Dive.

    Cheers Matt for organising. Great gig and nice group of people. Unfortunately I had to leave at the start of the encore and didn't get to say goodbye to everyone but might see you out again at another meetup.

      Lovely to meet you Georgia. Thanks Matt, as always.

    For anyone who is interested, you can download the New Gods album 'Beloved' for free here (yes FREE!): http://belovedalbum.com/ It is a stunning album - I am on my 4th listen today! Seriously, do yourself a favour....

    Fabulous night. Jim Lawrie was excellent, the New Gods were awesome (definitely will schedule a future meetup to see those guys again) , and Saskwatch their usual brilliant selves. My only very minor criticism was that their set seemed a little more subdued than the last time we saw them. Perhaps because they played some of the slower songs off their new album, whereas last time was a bit more upbeat. But still superb, and as usual a great bunch of people to share the night with!

    Even better than last time! Good one Matt :-D

    Hi All. We have a table indoors at the rooftop bar. Just to the right of the bar under the tv.

    July 5, 2014

  • Georgia P.

    Thanks Matt for the info. I will get to the venue between 8 and 8:30pm. Catch ya then!

    It seems to have taken forever, but the day is almost here. I hope everyone has been able to have a listen to their new album as it is really fabulous. Please note that I have changed the start time to 7.30 as the first band is not on until 9. Saskwatch are due on at 11.20. I will get there at 7.30 for a beer and bite to eat so be great if you'd like to join me upstairs in the rooftop bar. Once I'm there I will post on here where I am, otherwise contact me on[masked] if you can't find us. Also, my experience last time was that they were quite loud, and Nkechi's voice, though amazing, could be quite ear piercing when she hit the high notes. So my advice is bring earplugs! Looking forward to seeing you all on Sat for a great night :-)

    As Glenn has also asked below, if anyone ends up having a spare ticket I would like to buy it :)

    June 20, 2014

    • Matt G.

      Perhaps Seano can enlighten us as to how he got a ticket - looks like he found a way!

      June 20, 2014

    • Seano

      Just fortuitous timing on good ol gumtree. & of course listen to rrr/pbs week or 2 before. If you're a member (& you should be!), you just may be a lucky punter..

      1 · June 20, 2014

  • Seano

    Doh! Won't give up though. There is a will, so there will be a way.. ;-)

  • Glenn

    Damn - haven't got a ticket ! Matt, could please let me know if anyone has to pull out and I will buy it ASAP. Right up to an hour before !

    May 27, 2014

    • Matt G.

      Ah, that's a pity Glenn. Perhaps someone will have a spare ticket sometime down the track - keep your eyes on this forum. The only other option is sometimes the Corner does release a few tickets on the night at around 7pm if you're prepared to come along and take the chance.

      May 27, 2014

  • Matt G.

    Hi All, as per the above this gig has now sold out. I'm sure though that you all took my advice and have your tickets all organised, don't you? :-) To sell out the Corner 6 weeks in advance shows just how the popularity of Saskwatch has exploded. If you don't have a ticket could you please change your rsvp. Cheers. Matt.
