Into The Void? you might have heard of this band if you're from Christchurch, probably not if you're from further afield.
If you are in town tomorrow night and at a loose end then head along to Alice's Cinematheque on Tuam street to see Margaret Gordon's excellent documentary on one of Christchurch's favourite bands. I missed the preview in August as I was in Dunedin from where I heard nothing but raving from those who saw it, raving. Did you miss it? This an excellent chance to see Into The Void on a big screen and find out what all the fuss is about. Into The Void, best seen at the Dux on Montreal street back in the day, most interesting gig = Carlton Hotel c.1990 with Ronnie van Hout delivering his vocals from Melbourne via a telephone set up on stage, but for me a highlight was getting the band to perform in the foyer at the Christchurch Art Gallery in 2006 when Jason Greig's exhibition, The Devil Made Me Do It, was showing, a defining moment for the Gallery maybe having just come through the paradigm shift. Get along if you can, book a ticket here. And it's also showing on Saturday afternoon if you can't make Friday night.
