There are two types of gig-goers: those who like bands to start their sets on time, and those that are happy to see where the evening takes them. And while we're not saying that the acts gracing the stage at Oh Hello!'s Late Nite Band Nite won't commence promptly, being a bit late is what the new addition to their calendar is all about.
Here, the bands start when it's usually finishing time at most gigs, which is perfect for anyone keen on live tunes to take them into the early hours. Sets kick off at 11.30pm, with local and national bands hitting the stage for some up-late action. First cabs off the rank: Landings, Hooch and Cheeki.
Launching on August 11, Late Nite Band Nite will become a regular occurrence, although future dates are yet to be revealed. Tickets are free if you arrive before 11pm — with DJs setting the mood from 9.30pm — and $5 afterwards.
