Chch area peoples -- Saturday night out?
- Topic Author
I didn't see that Latin guitarist one on the Saturday, though, will have to go back and have a look. I did, however, find this: something that won't break the budget and sounds like a nice and early evening out. http://www.eventfinder.co.nz/2012/musica-balkanica-choir-presents-seasons-of-the-balkans/christchurch-city#none
I listened to the 2 live pieces on their website, and they sound quite good! We're quite looking forward to it!

A number of the "wild and hairy" bands from our childhood and earlier are still touring to packed venues. I find them far superior to many of the new younger musicians. Guess that's what every generation says though. As Nora says have a squizz on the internet and you are sure to find something you might like.
Oh, I still like the wild and hairy style from MY generation, but what passes for it nowadays is just loud and boring. That's what I meant. TOok my son (then 17) to see The Who in AKL a few years back. Still good, but not the same power as from the first time I saw them, which would have been about 30 years ago (ACK!!!!). Wish more good shows came to the SI, I was seriously spoilt growing up in the SF Bay Area - saw just about everyone you can think of, and tickets were only about $8-$15 bucks way back when. Sigh. Yeah,I have to admit, that makes me feel a wee bit old.
My head is still young, but my body has suffered for a lot of years, and it holds me back and it's really frustrating sometimes.
Anyway, as we said, we are not night people anymore. Been there, done that, have the t-shirts.
Quite looking forward to seeing the Balkan folk music peoples on Saturday night, and will make a note of the other recommendations for eateries. LOVE Asian food, so always looking for a good place to eat, thanks, Flossie! Oh, hey, just saw the idea about the casino - that's a good one, must remember it! Not much into gambling, but much more fun people-watching!
Still too much of a chicken to go to the cinema, will get over it one day for the right film, I'm sure! Last time I went, there was a 4.5 aftershock, and I had a panic attack. Haven't been back since.
