Information Ape Tour: Kick On

Cassette 9, Auckland CBD, Auckland

We're finally getting back to The 09, The Harbour City, Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland with our first appearance at Cassette 9 since the Big Aroha Tour of '16. Lawks a Lordy that's nigh on 8 years ago! But we're back, fresher than ever with a brand new album in tow and with support from the fabulous Rusty String Republic. You are being mapped. How do you feel? Goto 10 Ticket link below.


theSlacks are kicking off and cutting loose. We're going to throw the tour van into cruise control but first we're going to peel out of the driveway and this gig is the metaphorical peel out! 8Ball Pool & Darts. And it is our very special pleasure to be able to share the stage with local legends Courtenay & The Unholy Reverie who are riding hot with their single "Mercy" and lots more to come.

Lazy Sun Day with theSlacks

LittleChurch Bay, 46 Octavius Place, New Plymouth

The game was rained off last time but this time, we're drawing hieroglyphs with sunscreen (250+), doing reverse rain dances and even sacrificing some kale and kombucha to the weather Gods. We are so confident that the sun will shine all day, we didn't even bother with a wet-weather venue! Fingers Crossed! With very special guest Liana Hart, tickets are available on eventfinda (link below). Churs, one and all!

band bio

Shimmering Subversive Singalongs that are at once dire and light-hearted, weighted perfectly for a world stitched up and coming apart at the seams. 

Folk-Rock-Pop that delivers a poignant social commentary powered by an unselfish desire to entertain. 

Best known for antipodean-pop hits, Big Aroha and Yeah Nah, theSlacks are all over the folk-pop-rock spectrum, delivering danceable rhythms, joyful indie-pop and a refreshingly real vibe that resonates with questing minds in these testing times.
