Folk Punk in wellington

Postby benn » Fri Apr 26, 2013 10:33 pm

Looking for someone keen to play some folk punk covers in wellington. Thinking against me, gaslight anthem, flogging molly, dropkick murphys, the pogues, replacements.

Do you know Tim Posta from The Dead Scene & Dimestore Skanks? Talk to that guy, he might know some people who know some people. Probably not though.

A 'musicians wanted' thread is probably not the thread for you then, eh. :lol:



Good luck benn, sounds like a great idea.

Does not compute! :?
EDIT: Most of the bands he mentioned are folk punk, so unless my understanding of logic is somewhat flawed there must be some folk punk that does not suck?


Anyway, gypsy punk is where it's at. NZ needs more of it.

:lol:

Had this fear too.

Started watching a video of a concert of theirs while flying to Australia, they opened with their big hit that's had all the radio play (little lion man), seemed to go down hill from there.

As with most folk rock bands, the high end traditional instruments were soon lost in the mix.
