Answered by: Chris Wilson

Why are you coming to visit our fair country? To play some shows, eat some food, see some sights, visit places like Avenue Bookstore, Astor Cinema, and visit friends and family. We're keen to some some local bands. 

Is this your first visit? It's our second visit. Gold Medal Famous played four shows in July 2015 and had a great time.

How long are you here for? Four days. It's short holiday from our day jobs in a school, an office and a bookshop. We want to get some more summer weather as we're from Wellington, New Zealand.
