95bFM presents...



It's the return of the bFM Xmas Party - often mythologized, never duplicated - with DEEP SEA ARCADE, XURI XRUZ, & POPSTRANGERS at Mum Clubnight at Cassette on Friday December 7th!

Tickets on sale now from Undertheradar.co.nz & Real Groovy. $15 discounted tickets with your bCard (must be presented at the door) or $20 full price tickets without a bCard.


bFM & MUM Clubnight are stoked off our collective faces to be bringing Australia’s DEEP SEA ARCADE to Auckland to blow the balcony off Cassette Nine. The Sydney-based five-piece released their debut album Outlands earlier this year and quickly became one of bFM’s favourite bands of 2012 with their ability to blend retro British rock ‘n roll with modern-day indie sounds. With tracks that draw forth comparisons to everyone from the Smiths to Zeppelin to Portishead to the Kinks and back again, Deep Sea Arcade - frontman Nic Mckenzie, bassist Nick Weaver, drummer Carlos Adura, and guitarists Simon Relf and Tim Chamberlain - have caught the eye of MTV, Triple J, NME, Zane Lowe, and of course, bFM. So what better way to celebrate the impending holiday season than with a massive party in a small room with one of Australia’s best new bands?

Joining Deep Sea Arcade are Auckland’s newest dance-party-starters XURI XRUZ, the brainchild of Bradley Artist (Teenwolf and Brand New Math), Calum Gunn (Brand New Math & Electric Confectionaires) and Ollie Skinner. Listen to their current bFM Top Ten hit “Oh Lothario” on their soundcloud and get on the bandwagon while there’s still room.

And finally, we've convinced the venerable POPSTRANGERS to come back from their wayward stateside adventures for this show. After rocking out at CMJ in New York the boys are back in Auckland with their slightly ethereal guitars to round out the Xmas Party lineup!
