Coming Events

Black Spider

Dates: Friday 22 November

Black Spider Trio is a Gypsy Jazz ensemble born in the heart of Wellington. The talents of these three virtuosic musicians combine to create a highly polished original repertoire featuring blazingly swift swing, deep sultry ballads, old-world waltzes and foot-stomping shuffles. As well as re-imaginings of classic jazz tunes by Django Reinhardt. Constantly evolving and releasing new material, Black Spider Trio are definitely one of the most exciting gypsy jazz entities to come out of New Zealand.


Dates: Last Tuesday of every month

SUBSET B.C - Courtyard Cosmogony

Dates: Saturday 7 December

Saturday 7th December will see the return to the Dome Bar’s beautiful courtyard of Te Tairāwhiti’s favourite dark-groove cinematic bass ensemble, Subset BC.

Known for their uniquely provocative sound and dance floor friendly grooves, the Subsetters are excited to once more share a night of eclectic original soundscapes, idiosyncratic covers and emergent musical phenomena.

Joining Subset BC on the wheels of steel will be Dome Bar regulars Missing Link and Subsekretary along with special guests.

Courtyard Cosmogony will be the band’s first public appearance since their well received winter solstice audio-visual show with Pauly B. Over the cooler months Subset have been honing their craft, practicing their dance moves and preparing some tasty new numbers for a summer twilight airing in their spiritual home, the one and only Dome Bar. Universes will be born, and outmoded patterns may well fade away - who’d want to miss that?

$10 Door and DJs from 8pm
