In September Lingynoiid will return home to meet her followers in the flesh and share with them her satirical prowess in what will be her first ever tour.

What will happen at this event?
Lingynoiid will be creating an atmosphere where women can unleash their inner "Sasha Fierce" and men can come feeling included instead of divided. As a survivor herself she will be sharing her own stories and raising awareness in honour of domestic violence.

Lingy is bringing the "nation" together to commemorate and empower each other by allowing a safe space for us to openly and unapologetically share ours stories.

We couldn't do this without a little twist, right?
Add music, fun and dance to the mix and we have our very own party! "The Lingy way"

Progressive muscle wasting leads to loss of mobility and independence, and there are often major impacts on organ systems, which can result in early loss of life. Symptoms can appear at birth or for others not until much later in life. These conditions can be unpredictable and there are limited treatment options.

Postmodern Jukebox

3 Oct 2018 (Wed)

Napier Municipal Theatre, Wednesday 3 October 2018 7:00pm – 10:00pm

Tickets Start at $79.90 each
New Zealand loves Postmodern Jukebox! Following three successful tours in as many years, the multi-talented collective will bring their re-imagined contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears back to eagerly awaiting fans in 2018.

Each time around, PMJ looks forward to bringing their unique spin on modern pop hits and retro pop stylings to new cities for the first time, as well as revisiting favourite haunts that welcome them back with eagerly open arms. And as any PMJ fan can tell you, the experience is never the same twice, with new songs, new sounds, and new members added to the ever-growing family each time around.

Last year, PMJ collected 18 favourites to compile The Essentials for Concord Records. The album featured the songs that Bradlee has called “most essential to the PMJ universe,” including hits by Beyoncé, the White Stripes, Lorde, Outkast and Maroon 5 – along with the song that put the band on the map, a vaudevillian distressing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” fronted by Robyn Adele Anderson that garnered more than a million views within a week of being posted. The pin-up styled singer returned for the album’s opener, their ‘50s doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’ celebration of an inhibition-shedding spree, “We Can’t Stop,” which garnered more than 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine.
