Birchville Cat Motel, one of New Zealands underground treasures, will delight or perplex with his brutal but subtle explorations of the nature of sonic experience. Public Toilet Ltd. never fails to surprise and entertain with his unusual take on music and performance. The Unknown Rockstar will continue his obsession with the sound of vibrating strings.

Come down, enjoy the sound of the unique space and artists and check out the artworks. Don't forgot to plug up those ears, for your own safety.
