Text:It's became another gay K' Road mainstay, drawing a mixed, fashionable and youthful crowd every second Thursday with bands, themed event stuff, and DJ's that play music you don't normally hear at a gay night elsewhere. Now the Sohomo crew are visiting Wellington for a one-off night of aural adventure. "Combining a queer-friendly crowd with indie-electro music, Sohomo has been redefining social binaries," says the event's promoter Paul Phillips, who describes the upcoming gig as a chance to "pay homage to Wellington." Here's the lowdown on the headline acts the Sohomo team have in store for capital clubgoers: Heat like Me Heat Like Me At just one year old, Wellington's Heat Like Me have received an overwhelmingly positive response from the local and international music community. In April 2008, the group opened sales of their debut EP, titled You Want It. A four-piece live band, Heat Like Me's music can be compared to contemporaries The Knife, Midnight Juggernauts, Hot Chip and Goldfrapp. Sohomo guests will enjoy the spontaneity of the band's live performance, combining electronic drums and analogue synthesisers with pop vocals. Listen to Heat Like Me on their MySpace page. Little Pictures Little Pictures Wellington band Little Pictures will be playing live, their final New Zealand show before their Australian tour. Little Pictures are Johanna Freeman and Mark Turner, who live together where they play electronic pop music and hang out on the internet. Some people call them cute, but we're told they're actually bad to the bone! Having been recently signed to Lil' Chief Records, the next few months will see Little Pictures release their debut album Owl + Owl, which they will be touring throughout New Zealand and Australia. Preview Little Pictures on their MySpace page. A.D.A.M. A.D.A.M. Adam's a kingpin in the Auckland music scene. In the past three months, he's packed out Sohomo crowds, and played along side DJs Greg Churchill, Antix (fiord), Angela Fisken, and Cyril Orson. He's also played supporting sets for bands… The Shocking Pinks, Collapsing Cities, Charlie Ash, Bang!Bang!Eche and Chk Chk Chk (!!!). Find A.D.A.M. on his MySpace page. Wellington's one-off Sohomo night will hit The San Francisco Bath House, upstairs at 171 Cuba Street this Friday 20 June. Doors open at 9:30pm. Join us here on in the days after the event for Sohomo gig photos. And, of course, you can visit Sohomo on their MySpace page to find out more and keep up to date. Matt Akersten - 17th June 2008
