ALIZARIN LIZARD AND MR YODA PRODUCTIONS PRESENT
MAD AS A MARCH HARE TOUR featuring ALIZARIN LIZARD with support from BROWN
WINTER 2011 (AUG/ SEPT)
ALIZARIN LIZARD: Their debut EP Oh, Colour is due to hit stores around New Zealand this month with the help of Border Music and Banished From the Universe, so in true ‘lizard fashion’ they are embarking on a lengthy tour. Beginning in their hometown of Dunedin, they will be delivering their intoxicatingly rambunctious live show to more towns than you can shake a stick at. The second single Mad As A March Hare is out now, with an accompanying video by Emma Johansson being released on Saturday 13th August.
If this isn’t enticing enough for you, Alizarin Lizard will also be introducing fellow Dunedin band Brown to New Zealand as the support act throughout the tour. Read about Brown and see the full list of dates and support acts below.
BROWN: After time spent abroad the tragi-comic, melancholic songs of Michael K Cathro finally make a welcome return to New Zealand shores. Since taking in the sights and sounds from India to Ireland, Brown have written, recorded and released unique handmade albums. With songs such as “Our Love is Like a David Bain Jersey”, “King Edward Street” and “Did She Join A Commune?” the music explores themes of dysfunctional love and mankind’s relative insignificance delivered with a distinctive, quirky charm. This tour Brown will be promoting their debut album, the self-titled “Brown” and subsequent EP “Mould”.
