Wellington party punks DARTZ and Dunedin surf rockers L. Hotel are hitting Yonder on Saturday 20 August for a free show!
DARTZ is the band from Wellington, New Zealand. With influences rooted in the boozy and anthemic Kiwi pub rock of yesteryear as well as modern punk freneticism and landlord-induced anxieties, since forming in 2019 the DARTZ boys have been busy carving out their own lane in Aotearoa's music scene.
Described as New Zealand's "politically aware class clowns with a reputation for bringing the party wherever they appear" in a recent article naming them one of the country's 10 future music stars to watch, DARTZ are Crispy on guitar, Clark on bass, Rollyz on drums and Danz on the shouts.
L. Hotel are the sum of their parts. Three quirked-up white boys (Fred, David and Jono) goated with the sauce about to bust it down musical style. The boys have been thrashing their high-energy indie-surf tunes around Ōtepoti for the better part of 3 years, usually at your local or which ever flat was unfortunate enough to ask them to play.
