There are many reasons that the Powerstation has long been a favourite of performers and audiences alike. Good acoustics and sightlines from virtually any audience vantage point, an intimate theatre vibe despite its capacity, and easy access in a central location. Now that it is being run again as a stable venue, the tradition and memories associated with the Powerstation will continue.
All in all what an amazing gig!! Katchafire engaged with the audience very early on in their set with their classic reggae vibe and didn’t stop or slow down! Kora followed on with an amazing bass line and really rocked the last hour and half of the show! Both bands have such awesome talent and yet again felt proud to be a kiwi that night! Powerstation didn’t disappoint as they never oversell the venue which always makes it attractive to the punters when wishing to boogie on down or have easy access to the bar. Be sure to look for their summer tour dates!
A big open space, the Powerstation does a pretty good job at holding gigs and events. Where it falls flat on it's face is it's total lack of friendly staff and range of drinks.
Headed to Powerstation for the Night Of The Nutters, part of the NZ Comedy Festival and had a great time. I'd been given some horror stories of the venue, but thought the bar staff were fast, seemed to serve everyone in order and they served pizza for the hungry. To be fair the pizza wasn't the best and the seats were pretty uncomfortable, but the that didn't stop us having a great time. Recommended.
