CAF – BoxFresh Live! #4 The Response & Adam McGrath
September 2 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Christchurch Arts Festival 2017 Presents
BoxFresh Live! #4 – matches up emerging local indie-pop act The Response, with renowned musical journeyman and The Eastern frontman Adam McGrath.
This is the latest in the BoxFresh Live! series featuring exceptional musical talent performed in an intimate setting while being filmed live.
Andrew and Victoria Knopp of The Response boast a dynamic live show that has allowed them to share the stage with Baio (of Vampire Weekend fame), Deep Sea Diver (Seattle) and Big Scary (Australia). Drawing influence from dominant indie acts Arcade Fire and Sufjan Stevens, expect powerful song writing backed by reverb-drenched synth pop and fuzzed-out guitars.
A true folk singer stationed wherever he lands, Adam McGrath travels the state highways of New Zealand, Australia, Europe and beyond, slinging songs and offering up low rent barroom philosophy with his band of misfits and chancers, The Eastern.
Described as ‘two parts Woody Guthrie, one part revival meeting and one part group hug’ and “NZ’s toughest minded songwriter” (NZ Herald), he searches for the magic that weaves and connects through the humble folk song.
