The Chills Live In Wellington
Dunedin based band The Chills are pleased to announce they will be performing a one-off Wellington show Saturday 1 December at Bodega.
The Chills are in fine form as a five piece live show featuring alongside frontman Martin Phillipps: Erica Stichbury (Keys/guitar/Violin), Oli Wilson (Keys) James Dickson (Bass), Todd Knudson (Drums).
The band have not played Wellington since 2004 (Martin played a solo support for The New Pornographers in 2008) and this show is sure to be enjoyed by fans of all generations.
Recently signing to Far South Records, The Chills have a very very special limited edition vinyl box coming out soon and a new Martin Phillipps solo live EP and album is due out shortly exclusively on iTunes.
Joining The Chills at the Wellington show will be local Wellington band - The Hipper Critters featuring Bruce Mahalski who is also contributing artwork to a new iTunes release.
The Hipper Critters comprises members of former early-mid 80s post-punk bands from Dunedin and Wellington along with some new younger players.
Martin comments: "The band and I are long overdue a visit to Wellington as we know lots of Chills fans are there and the crowd at Bodega are always really enthusiastic and supportive. We are all looking forward to playing Wellington (my birthplace) after far too long of a break".
