The Eastern @ The Mapua Community Hall


The Eastern is close to being my favourite band (that would be Little Feat, btw) and when they come to Nelson, nothing will keep me away.

Last week, they did a charity gig for the Mapua Community Hall.

Crap acoustics,

D7K_0477the usual uncultured Nelsonians who reckon it’s OK to talk ALL OVER the acousric warm-up set,


(Tui drinkers – what can you expect…?)

but 2 bars into the first song, the dance floor is chocka.and they don’t stop for a couple of hours.


Doesn’t get much better than this…

And the classic country “Ladies, a plate please”


The buffet tables were groaning.
