THE DRAFT NZ TOUR 2007 WITH VERY SPECIAL GUESTS

  • THURSDAY JUNE 21ST WELLINGTON @ San Francisco Bathhouse (R18)
    w/ Skaface Claw

When news hit that the legendary Hot Water Music were taking a hiatus, we waited with baited breath for details to emerge of a new project by 3/4ths of the band.

Enter The Draft - George Robello, Jason Black and Chris Wollard along with new recruit Todd Rockhill (Discount).

Reinvention can be a bitch but when The Draft's debut 'In A Million Pieces' (Epitaph) reached our ears in 2006 it was met with critical acclaim and fans worldwide collectively breathed a sigh of relief. 'In a Million Pieces' is composed of 12 powerful, hard hitting tracks that sees these Florida punk rockers move beyond the legacy of Hot Water Music into new territory and is a victorious shout at the world – The Draft are here!

In March, 2007 The Draft released a self-titled digital EP, containing four more rockin’, toe-tapping, melodic punk anthems which represents The Draft in all its new glory.

What becomes obvious when you see The Draft live is that when it comes to forceful, fluid and intricate punk-inspired sounds, few roar with the kind of expression and passion than that of The Draft. Don’t miss your opportunity to see this veteran group of musicians.

THE DRAFT will be joined by very special guests COBRA KHAN and making his first live appearances solo and acoustic (and we’re all very, very excited!) Mr Ryan Thomas – front man for our own legendary punk veterans SOMMERSET.

Review

I’m not sure if The Draft are used to being referred to as a noise band, but that’s what I thought they were at the San Francisco Bathhouse last Thursday night.

Apart from a seemingly drunk front man, and a volume beyond belief, they did have a certain element of showmanship that was believable.

Cobra Kahn opened for them, but to be honest I thought they well could have headlined the show with their intensity and showmanship, and obvious crowd pleasing songs. The best part of the whole night was when Cobra Kahn played that cool cover off Metallica’s Garage Inc…you know the one yeah, yeah…nah.

Anyway, The Draft are pretty good at what they do, but I think they could’ve pulled more of a crowd if it wasn’t so expensive. San Fran was pretty empty. At the end of that gig I asked myself, is punk dead? It seemed like it. With the likes of Cobra Kahn flying below the radar these days and more synth rock popping up here, there and everywhere, the future for bands like these is uncertain. So if you’ve got something up our sleeve, now is the time to pull it out!
