Hat-trick of top Easter gigs


Revolver rolls out a host of hot bands this weekend for its annual three-day Easter live music festival. 

The Shotover Street haunt is one of only a few resort bars open throughout the holiday period – and as a condition of licence, punters must enter the venue before 10pm on all nights, with doors opening at 9pm. 

Tomorrow, there’s dub, roots and soul from Dub Frequen-C and Soulsystem. 

On Saturday, roots and reggae favourites Taos and Jah Fire do the honours. 

Rockers get their turn on Sunday, with ear-splitting sounds from The Flaming Drivers, Eddie Ledderhead, Liam and the Skitzofrantics plus The Station Agents. 

Tickets from Quest and Play It Again Records – $15 gets you into all three nights.
