Mishap - Gig Review: Mishap @ Thistle Hall, Wellington - 2/09/2017

04 Sep 2017 // A review by Tony McDonald

As soon as Mishap hit the stage, it became obvious as to their status of local heroes, quickly smashing into The Scrumpy Song with the majority of the crowd singing along.

This definitely felt like the most active fan base I've seen for a local group, even asking for an encore. This was something I wasn't expecting the band to deliver on, but I was happily surprised at their cover of Green Day's Basket Case. There was a lack of material from their latest EP Not Feeling This but I can't help but feel that this is a nod back to the Toaster EP, which is where the original Hey, Allie! single was recorded. A personal highlight would have to be when a member of the crowd was pulled up during their first EP's self titled track to do vocals alongside the rest of the band. Great to see that kind of interaction with your fan base, not to mention that it felt like the most energetic track of the night.

Mishap's tour isn't quite over, with gigs in Christchurch, Dunedin and Levin, you definitely won't want to miss the awesome show this Wellington based pop-punk group has to offer.

About Mishap

Mishap are a pop-punk trio from Wellington, formed in March 2016. They have a style that is somewhere between the simple, raw sound of 90s Green Day and Blink-182 and the tight, modern sound of bands such as The Story So Far, Neck Deep and State Champs.

In 2016, Mishap released their debut EP, Toaster with most popular tracks being Hey Allie and The Scrumpy Song. On these songs, Mishap have made a name for themselves among the New Zealand rock community, touring exhaustively around the North Island.

For Mishap, 2017 held the release of their second EP, Not Feeling This, two fully funded music videos and touring with pop punk pals Fire For Glory, Braves, Lookin Up, Barracks and heaps of other rad bands! Their first (professional) music video was released on the 16th of March for their single/title track of Not Feeling This.

Gig Review: Darryl Baser @ Moon, Wellington - 18/08/2018

Unfortunately, Moon wasn't rocking this Saturday night in Newtown. The crowds may have been watching the All Blacks in a nearby bar.

06 Nov 2017 // by Tony McDonald
Head banging on the front row, covered in beer, sweat and waves of pushing & shoving. Too Young To Die instantly transports you to a live venue.

The Whiskey Show - Single Review: Vengeance
12 Oct 2017 // by Tony McDonald
This is a classic old school rock song with a modern 'Black Keys' style drum and bass feel thrown in. Dene's vocals are great for this genre, and Scott's guitaring is stunningly good.

Openside - Single Review: I Feel Nothing
28 Aug 2017 // by Tony McDonald
Thumping bass and drums overlaid with great effects and keyboards make this 80’s retro PowerPop single really stand out. I Feel Nothing is a very catchy tune and it's certain to be a hit especially in the lead up to summer.
