Rad times with Rare Shot Blue @ Double Happy

On Friday night I had the honor of playing alongside Rare Shot Blue at the release party for his latest album, Where I was Born.

It was a small but fun crowd and they were definantly keen for a boogie. His new album is much more of a downbeat affair compared to what he has released in the past but is of high quality both musically and technically. Hideto is the man behind the beats and over the years he’s had an assortment of guest vocalists, including LA Mitchell, Sascha Vee and Rosie. The current live act consists of Hideto and Rosie. 

For those who didn’t get a chance to check Rare Shot Blue out on Friday check out what he’s got to offer online:

He’ll also be performing at a few more gigs around Christchurch in November, for details check out his Myspace page.

Mad props to my man Hideto, Rosie, DJ Silence and DJ Snare for a wonderful night!
