  • Five-piece band The Chills stand in a line, staring directly at the camera. They are all dressed in black and are in a warehouse that is bathed in red light. Five large circular white lights are hanging at various heights around them.

    The Chills

    9.40–10.40pm

    NZ pop-rock legends (who’ve been at it for forty years) cross the pond for your listening / grooving pleasure.

    Chikchika

    8.20–9.20pm

    High energy up-tempo east African / Australian music, drawing on the rich traditions of the Tigrinya and Oromo styles.

  • Four members of I Hold the Lion's Paw stand in a field of wheat grass. Two of the male band members stand closer to the camera, whereas another male and female band member stand further away. They are all wearing layers and staring blankly at the camera.
