On Monday night Craig & I headed to the Botanic Gardens with a few friends for a picnic and to listen to some music. See, Wellington has this thing where in summer local bands perform in the gardens. For free. And you can take a picnic blanket and food and booze and just have the loveliest time.
It was a deliberate decision to attend, our flatmate and good friend is in The Concerned Residents and it was their first proper gig. Very exciting. Thankfully their opening act, LOST BiRD (aka Ali Whitton) was also delightful and endearing.
The Concerned Residents quickly gained a small crowd of small dancers. They made up for it with enthusiasm.
They also have light installations up in the gardens so after the show we went for a little wander …
Wellington can be really quite lovely sometimes, you know?
