Hum Soiree – Autumn Gathering – Wed 23rd May – music, food, fire

May 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Kia ora people! (Jeff here)

Art, NZ Music Month, Free food, and a cosy fire to celebrate Autumn.
Admit it, we got you at ‘Free food’ ay…

Anyways, let us paint a lil picture of the night for ya

Wednesday night. 7pm. Hum Salon. Fairy lights. People chilling outside under trees on lil benches, drinking, eating, chatting. You walk on in, up the stairs, through the door, and to your left is a room with the most beautiful table of food you’ve ever seen and all of it is fingerlickingly free! (Dayum). But then you look around and to your utmost delight notice that the wooden walls are covered in the dopest original art in all shapes and sizes, courtesy of A-town’s one and only Nate Foon

But there’s more.
You do your rounds, check out the art, stuff your face and then you hear soundcheck noises coming from the room opposite. Curiosity prevails. You slide through the corridor and feel the warmth of a cosy fire emanating from the gig room. You peek inside and see amps, mic stands, guitars, pianos, couches, drums and people soaking up the sounds.
What sounds do we speak of?
Well.

ELENA ŠILJIĆ opening the night with a sweet solo set of haunting and intimate music at 8pm

Echo Children following with their ambient, folky, layered, gritty, Indie sound

and Restless Electric closing the night with some mellow, dreamy pyschedelia and grunge and grit of their own.

And it’s free. Whaaaat.
Don’t fret though, you are permitted to drop some Koha if you wish.

On that note, the event is BYO and we like the idea too of Bring a Plate to share around with everyone (vegetarian please) if you’re feeling the love. We’re already putting on some food but hey, it’s always nice to do the pot luck thing.

That’s it. See you there. Woop woop woop.
