Free lunchtime gig

The Tribune (NZ) - - What’s On -

The baby-faced as­sas­ins of Alien Weaponry are about to de­scend on Palmer­ston North. TheWaipu, North­land thrash and hard­core me­tal band, founded in 2010 by broth­ers Lewis (guitar) and Henry de Jong (drums) with Ethan Trembath (bass), has been a re­gional fi­nal­ist in the Smoke­free Rock­quest ev­ery year since 2012.

In 2013, Henry won the over­all mu­si­cian­ship award for his drum­ming and he and his younger bro picked up the SFRQ song­writ­ing award.

The sin­gle Cages re­ceived plenty of air­play on the Rock-FM’s Axe At­tack dur­ing 2014.

Still in their early teens, the trio were the sup­port act for 2014’s na­tional Devil­skin tour, and opened for Shi­had at the Pow­er­house this year for their 20th an­niver­sary Killjoy show.

These three en­fants ter­ri­bles are back in town to kick off Massey’s Arts on Wed­nes­day for the new se­mes­ter on July 15, 12.30 – 1.30pm with a free con­cert in the Black Sheep Theatre. They fol­low up on Thurs­day at the Royal on Ran­gi­tikei St with bands Ceder and Dred­set in a gig that kicks off at 8pm.
