Bats to play garden gig

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 yesterday.

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.
