Rough Church with Robert Scott plus the Shifting Sands03/05/2014 8:00 pm See this event on Facebook Chicks Hotel
Rough Church are heading to New Zealand for a series of shows kicking off this month. The Los Angeles band is fronted by Greg Franco who first visited these shores in 2004 and ended up recording SouthpawWest with Robert Scott and David Kilgour of The Clean. This latest tour will be Franco's fifth trip to New Zealand and coincides with the release of Rough Church's new album entitled 46 Missed Calls (Live at KPFK), which is coming out through Powertool Records. A number of the new songs were penned by New Zealand poet David Eggleton and half of the album was recorded live at EStudio and the remainder was tracked during a live broadcast on LA radio station KPFK-FM.
Rough Church live showcases the considerable talents of Kaitlin Wolfberg on violin and keyboards and Andy Sykora on drums/percussion. Rough Church have also have a local connection – for this tour they will be joined by Wellingtonian Kedron Parker on bass, who has shared countless bills with Franco for many years in L.A. before she moved to Wellington in 2003. Parker is currently known for her public art sound installation Kumutoto Stream which runs in the Woodward Street pedestrian tunnel in the Wellington CBD.
