28 - 29 March - If you're in Wellington for the inaugural CUBA DUPA festival we'll be out and about filming a fine selection of amping bands. There are some enchanting events happening around the Cuba St area, including an opera showcase up Leeds St, many live bands, a Fuse circus expo, exhibitions, fundraisers, shops and food stalls galore. It's going to be a good one and the weather's going to be great.
As well as filming, Sophi is part of an exhibition taking place at 2 Eva Street, a shared studio space that is having an open studio + exhibit of works, curated by Carolin Prinn and Lance Ravenswood. If you've wandered past the space for years and wondered what on Earth goes on in there - here's your chance for an insiders guide. There are some remarkable pieces on offer - so if you're in the area enjoy browsing and chatting to the guest artists and artists in residence before meandering further up the street to the Wellington Chocolate Factory, Leeds St Bakery. Head back down to enjoy a Six Barrell Soda or try a coffee with sweet live music at Memphis Belle Coffee House. We're also going to have some of our music videos playing in virtual reality goggles at Little Thunder Cafe.
