You may not realise this but The Afterword wraps its bingo-winged, liver-spotted arms all around the world. From the top of Scandanavia where KFD and Locust roam among shiverimg trolls, all the way to Antarctica where Neil Dyson once posted from, where I believe he was on a hunting trip to pick up some delicious baby penguins.
And everywhere in between…. Thaiiland! Vietnam! Vancouver! It doesn’t matter what you wear* – just as long as you are there.
*Just keep it to yourself if you’re flapping around in the buff.
Anyway, after a robust and transparent selection process, TV’s Auckland has been chosen as the Southern Hemisphere venue for the 2017 event. Largely because it’s where me and Nick Duvet live. So we will be there! And there’s every chance that Precious Mackenzie, Bryan Gould and Nyree Dawn Porter will pop in.
Where? The Northern Steamship Company (it’s a pub), Quay Street, Auckland.
When? 7:30pm Thursday 2 November 2017
The video is a NZ song from the 60s that should be a worldwide well known song but for whatever reason it isn’t. We will be discussing this and many more things on the night.
Previous gatherings have been, shall we say, compact and bijou. So if you are coming and you’re not me or Nick Duvet, give us an indication in the comments and we will make ourselves known by talking loudly about The Incredible String Band or something.
