Rolling out red carpet for ExNe screening

ExNE GENERATION: Expect more cross-generational, multicultural, original sounds and quality musicianship, like that generated by the 2016 live ExNE showcase of Gisborne and East Coast music, at a screening next week of last year’s live show at Smash Palace. File picture

A free screening of ExNE 2017, Smash Palace’s third annual showcase of original music from Gisborne and the East Coast will be held at the Palace in the industrial subdivision next week.

As with the live ExNE (East by North East) show, the screening will be a red carpet event. ExNe 2017, the third in the series, includes Miss Pou, The Huntaways, Paua Nation, Sit Down In Front, Wayward Angels, SKB, Uni-Fi and The 35ers.

Miss Pou recently released her first EP recording Ahakoa He Iti, the well-seasoned musicians that make up The Huntaways perform original songs, while up and coming high school rockers Sit Down in Front demostrate the full rock sound that opened for the D4 earlier this year. SKB, the Steve Kingi Band, is headed by one of best singers anyone will ever hear, says Smash Palace owner Darryl Monteith; Waywood Angel deliver “stoner blues”, Subherbz and Paua Nation bring Pacific reggae flavours to the stage and are balanced by the 35ers’ hardcore rap.

“There is a consistent quality in the acts,” says Monteith. If it wasn’t for ExNE a lot of these would fly under the radar. We can put them on a digital platform to share with the rest of the world.”

Individual music videos from ExNE will be uploaded to Smash Palace YouTube channel after the premiere.

ExNE 2017, the movie, was produced and mixed by Darryl Monteith, recorded by Andrew Kirk and directed and edited by Josh O’Neil.
