Te Araroa Trail – Zero days in Nelson
So I’ve enjoyed something of a little holiday here in Nelson over the past few days. I’ve been doing not a whole lot, eating nice food and enjoying the InnBetween Lodge & Backpackers.
Highlight of the weekend was the ‘Out of the Blue’ one day music festival with 10 Kiwi bands. It went from a scorcher of a day to freezing and rainy (necessitating a quick run home for a shower & warm clothes half way through). Generally it was a pretty rubbbish day. The bands were a bit more ‘miss’ than ‘hit’ but faves included The Harris Brothers, and Graeme James.
Worth the entrance fee alone were final act L.A.B a mix-up of Bay of Plenty musicians from Kora, Katchafire & Batacuda Sound Machine, who performed an outstanding set – I’ve got to see these guys again!
