Bringing Ōtepoti an exciting conflagration of improvisational forces not to be missed!

About this event

November's Albany Street Jazz Loft brings together some of Dunedin and Wellington's finest improvising musicians for a multi-faceted boundary-pushing journey through free jazz and free improvisation-derived sonic worlds.

A programme featuring two veterans of 1980s Wellington's experimental music scene around Braille Records, the now - Dunedin based saxophonist Stuart Porter (Primitive Art Group, God) and inveterate Wellington drummer Anthony Donaldson (Primitive Art Group, Devil's Gate Outfit, Teeth) alongside high-demand Wellington bassist Tom Callwood (Devil's Gate Outfit, Lucien Johnson, Phoenix Foundation) and guitarist Alex Wolken (Reid+Wolken, Celluloid Bikers) and Susan Ellis (ex-The And Band) trumpet, cello, keyboard.

Due to current level 2 restrictions we will be holding the Jazz Loft concert in the Playhouse auditorium where seating can be socially distanced in accordance with guidelines. We believe it will still give you a special intimate and informal concert experience in this quirky venue.

This changes our timings and how we run the event as follows:

LIMITED PRE-SHOW PASS 6PM - 7PM (upstairs Jazz Loft space)

Purchase your pre-show pass (includes your first drink) and hang out in the intimate upstairs Jazz Loft space with your 'bubble' for drinks, a bite to eat (see menu below) and to listen to the best contemporary jazz playlist in town! These are separate "tickets" and are free. You are securing a seat for the cost of your first drink (see tickets).

CONCERT TICKET doors open to the auditorium at 6.30PM, music starts at 7PM until 9.30PM approx.

Purchase your ticket to the concert. Drinks can be purchased from the box office on arrival and taken into the auditorium.

LIMITED AFTER-SHOW PASS (the upstairs Jazz Loft space) until 11PM

Purchase your after-show pass (includes your first drink) and hang out in the intimate upstairs Jazz Loft space with your 'bubble' for drinks, a bite to eat (see menu below) and to listen to the best contemporary jazz playlist in town! These are separate "tickets" and are free. You are securing a seat for the cost of your first drink (see tickets).

INTERVAL: There will be an interval of approximately 20-30 minutes where you can purchase refreshments from either the upstairs bar or box office bar in keeping with social distancing.

CASH BAR (eftpos available)

FOOD MENU: "homemade" mug of soup (vegan/gf); yummy toasted sandwiches (vogels, feta, pesto, gherkin, red onion - gf bread option); Nacho (vegetarian/gf) - $5-6

Please note: under no circumstances can alcohol be taken off the premises. The Playhouse is situated in the DCC LIQUOR BAN area. If you are found consuming liquor outside you may receive a fine of up to $20,000 and so will we as holders of the license and organisers.
