Music month off to funky start

New flags for Dargaville

 Dargaville’s Victoria St — the town’s main shopping street — now has a new set of flags, as staff from Newman Engineering removed the former Field Days banners and replaced them with banners promoting Dargaville Museum and the Citizens Advice Bureau. The flags are an initiative of the Dargaville Business Forum. Newman Engineering co-owner Margaret Bishop says the changeover of the flags was delayed because the material used in the replacement flags had stretched and needed to be repaired before being reused.

May means one big thing for the world of music — the start of another rocking good New Zealand Music Month. We’ve got a lot to be proud of as a musical nation, with artists like Lorde ruling the international airwaves. But at the grassroots level there’s even more innovation, talent and fun happening, and it’s ready to burst out this Friday at famed west coast venue the Funky Fish. The acclaimed restaurant has garnered quite a reputation for quirky and eclectic acts, and this show, featuring the talented Olly Knox, breakout electronic artist Hide and Tallow, and indie rock two-piece Wicked Games will be a showcase of styles and genres all mashed into a sonic smorgasbord. We’re told that Olly Knox will be putting down the acoustic guitar and tuning up the electric for this set as well, which spearheads a new artistic direction and heralds a new lineup. This is only the first of what promises to be a whirlwind dance-card of local gigs, celebrating our rich musical history
