AFP Ninja Gig

There is a conference underway in Wellington that goes by the name of Webstock, I did not attend. Two of the guest speakers were musicians that I like, Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley. This evening just gone Amanda played a ninja gig* at the Wellington Civic Square and invited Jason along for the party, and I was there to see and hear.

It was an interesting and engaging evening. True, half the time I couldn’t actually hear the music over the general hubbub of people but it was fun none-the-less. Jason’s arrival livened things up, his maniac accordion playing going down a treat. There were duets and requests, crowd surfing and an acoustic ukulele cover of Radiohead’s song Creep. It was wonderful, more so perhaps for being free. Naturally I took some photos.
