This week's concert act are: indie country band The Bads.

The Bads is a vehicle for the musical escapades of Brett Adams and Dianne Swann, created under the fiery skies of Waitakere, Aotearoa New Zealand. Most recently spotted impressing a sold-out house at The Civic, as members of the Neil Young Live Rust tribute show, Adams and Swann confirmed their reputation as two of New Zealand’s finest musicians and performers.

Best known for their strong musicianship and songs, they are currently enjoying playing a series of stripped-back three-piece shows with their regular bandmate and multi-instrumentalist, Dave Khan. 

With four albums released to date, The Bads have an extensive catalogue to draw from with their song-writing abilities and depth praised to the hilt. 2009’s So Alive was nominated for Best Country Song and Album and more recently 2017’s Losing Heroes charted at #3 and received finalist status for the prestigious Taite Prize in 2018.
