  • Kristin Hersh announces New Zealand concerts for November

    Plus1 proudly presents US indie icon Kristin Hersh performing four New Zealand shows in November.


    Hersh will tour Aotearoa for the first time since 2014, performing from her solo and Throwing Muses-spanning career, as well as material from new album Clear Pond Road, out 8 September.


    The solo tour – presented with UnderTheRadar and 95bFM – includes Wellington, Christchurch and two Auckland dates, as follows:

    • Wedenesday 15 November – Meow, Wellington (extra show)
    • Thursday 16 November – Meow, Wellington (sold out)
    • Friday 17 November – The Piano, Christchurch
    • Saturday 18 November – Tuning Fork, Auckland
    • Sunday 19 November Artworks, Waiheke Island (sold out)

    Says Kristin: “New Zealand audiences are some of the most musically literate I have ever had the honor of playing for…they seem to grasp the comedy and tragedy inherent in visceral music like this.”

    The inimitable Kristin Hersh is a musician's musician, a songwriter's songwriter, and an innovator's innovator.


    The Queen of Grunge's first band, ThrowingMuses, began recording and playing out when they were just 14 years old and they're still going - 2020's critically acclaimed Sun Racket was hailed as "a perfect record”.


    Hersh's refusal to participate in acorporate industry saw her leave a Warner Brothers recording contract at the top of her success in order to become listener-supported.

    Wildly prolific, she has released morethan 20 albums solo, with Throwing Muses and with her noise rock band, 50Foot Wave.

    Kristin Hersh’s new album Clear Pond Road is set for release on 8th September via Fire Records (Southbound DistributionNZ), is a cinematic road trip; a series of personal vignettes from a fiercely independent auteur.
