Paper Boy - - Front Page -

Hit the stage Thursday, 7pm My weekend of­ten starts early with a gig at The Ele­phant Wrestler. My cov­ers co­hort (my­self and Lee Gray) play any­thing from The Bea­tles to Bey­oncé, and will per­form wed­dings, par­ties, any­thing you like! Come boo­gie. 138 Hurst­mere Rd, Taka­puna

Catch-ups Friday, 5pm Friday is an end of the week catch-up with con­struc­tion mates at The Horse and Trap (great old school pub fare) or The Cor­ner Store in Mount Eden. 3 En­field St; 25 Mt Eden Rd, Mt Eden

Oys­ters Friday, 6.30pm Or­phans Kitchen has $3 oys­ters, and my friend’s band Or­lando Julius plays, too. They do these awe­some jazz com­po­si­tions on the back ter­race. 118 Pon­sonby Rd, Pon­sonby

Fan fare Friday, 9pm If I’m not wiped out, I’ll hit Golden Dawn or The Thirsty Dog. Model Train Wreck of­ten plays the Dog and I’m a huge wrecky! 134 Pon­sonby Rd; 469 K’ Rd

Brunch Satur­day, 8am If I’m not work­ing, I have brunch at Crave cafe. Its new fit-out is great and the Bene­dic­tion is per­fect on a seedy morn­ing. 6 Morn­ing­side Drv, Morn­ing­side

Col­lect­ing Satur­day, 1pm Af­ter­noons are great times to binge-watch Net­flix or Youtube. I also love a bit of Trade Me surf­ing to add to my vintage drum kit col­lec­tion. I al­ready have 18 sets, which is lowkey out of con­trol.

In­die bands Satur­day, 9pm Satur­day night (or any night) is great at The Wine Cel­lar. They have an awe­some in­die line-up. 183 K’ Rd, central city

Slow Sun­days Sun­day, 10am I might catch up with friends at the Twisted Tomato or have a slow-cooked (read: boozy) Sun­day at Sios­tra. 149 Pt Che­va­lier Rd, Pt Che­va­lier; 472 Rich­mond Rd, Grey Lynn
