Thanks to NZ On Air foundation and its sub-section NZ On Air Music there have been a lot of improvements going on in the field of NZ music support and production.

Let's not forget that May is officially recognized as NZ Music month. So we celebrated it by watching emo/goth duo: carb on carb firstly and rockabilly band: Bernie Griffen and The Thin Men concert afterwards. It was worth attending.
