2-4 Callum Gentleman & Oskar Herbig.
May 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
It’s Nick Cave meets The Smiths in a dark alley where they conspire to kidnap Bob Dylan and move to New Zealand. It’s Tom Waits sharing a bottle of moonshine with Leonard Cohen at 4am. Come enjoy the rowdy blues hollas and smoky ballads
of this heart-breaking highwayman.
This New Zealand born, Melbourne based songwriter holds a stage with the finesse of a road-seasoned pro. Hitting the pub circuit before he could legally drink the rider, he was twice named a feature artist for New Zealand Music Month and collected the ASB Young Songwriter of the Year award in 2011.
As a central member of Skyscraper Stan and the Commission Flats, Oskar has appeared at pubs, festivals and theatres up and down the East Coast. Oskar’s influences are many and varied; the songs swing from eerie ballads to knee-slapping honkey-tonk, from barrelhouse to straight out rock ‘n’ roll.
His debut EP is out April 20th.
