Full Moon Gong feat. Slumbug & Dubtext

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Returning by popular demand, it's Whangarei's very own Full Moon Gong!

Join Whangarei's own parade of rock-up, sign-up, off-the-chain poets, musicians, comedians and performers of all dimensions in a celebration of the original in us all.

Joining the unexpected and vivid entertainments are all female Auckland punk trio Slumbug and electro-punk Dubtext.

Free and live at The Butter Factory from 8pm. Reward from the bar for all original performances!

About the show, and how to get involved: Gong is an open slather open mic variety show for anything original, hosted by raconteur Peter Larsen.

The Gong is used with a generous spirit!

It's a Gong show. Anyone can be gonged - even the host! The aim is to make an entertaining show where everyone gets a chance to shine. We're going to do our best to make that happen.

Typically there are five reasons you may be gonged: - Unoriginal content will be instantly gonged with no reward from the bar. - Time pressure: There are lots of performers and we have limited time. - Your performance has finished. - If the crowd deems you're being a douche. - If you performed the same work at the previous Gong you may be gonged - new material is always preferred!

The time limit is flexible depending on the genre, quantity and quality of the performances. Our advice - Leave the audience wanting more!

We will provide a mixer, PA and two mics. We've got a simple drum kit, bass and guitar amps. We can minijack your digital scenario into the mixer. Rock up with anything else you may need.

If you're a musician or have a band, then turn up with the bare necessities and do one, two or a few. We can even do a sound check if you show up around 7pm.

If you want to do any kind of performance at all just turn up on the night and put your name on the list.

If you're keen to perform please invite your friends. Got any questions? Leave em here or message us and we'll answer 'em as best we can.

All performers rewarded by the bar.
