Pauly B meets Subset B.C with Carrier

Dates: Saturday 22 June

This upcoming winter solstice, on the shortest day of the year, the Dome Bar will host an event worth braving the cold for.

Paul ‘Pauly B’ Bradley - renowned Hamilton illustrator and street artist will be visiting Gisborne to perform a unique show with explorative locals Subset BC.

In what will be Subset’s third gig at the Dome Bar, but first in the Dome room itself, the 5-piece cinematic bass ensemble wanted to do something different, to develop their show - and a collaboration with Bradley had long been on the cards.

Alongside his illustration, painting and mural work, Pauly B has performed his organic and beautiful live illustration with a number of bands over the years, notably The Mamaku Project and Dr Mesmer’s Private Army (See for some of his recent mural work).

For the upcoming Solstice Dome Room takeover, alongside two sets of Subset BC’s moody yet danceable soundscapes, Pauly B will project evolving organic images on the big screen, created in-situ from a combination of live illustration and technical wizardry. The band and illustrator will interact with each other’s work, generating never before seen or heard audio-visual offerings.

If that wasn’t enough to get you out of the house, this wintery collaboration will be joined by the debut live performance of Carrier, producer Steve King’s latest manifestation.

DJ Support from King Dynamite, Subsekretary and Missing Link.
$10 on the door.
