The Dunedin Botanic Garden will be alive with the sound of
Bats this weekend.
Seminal 1980s band The Bats will play a free lunchtime
concert in the garden soundshell on Sunday.
''We're really looking forward to it. We've never played an
outdoor lunchtime gig in Dunedin before, so it will be a
first for us,'' The Bats singer-guitarist Robert Scott said
The Bats was founded in 1982 by Dunedin-based Scott (lead
vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards) and Christchurch musicians
Paul Kean (bass), Malcolm Grant (drums) and Kaye Woodward
(lead guitar, vocals).
If the concert is postponed due to rain, it will be held at
1pm on Sunday, February 2.
The Dunedin City Council event is alcohol-free.
