MOON DUO (Wooden Shjips guitarist Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada) are coming to play two NZ dates in March 2013.
The shows, in Auckland and Wellington, will be the pair’s first NZ shows – although Wooden Shjips have graced these shores at least twice before. They come off the back of their latest and 2nd album Circles, which was inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 1841 essay by the same name, on the symbol and nature of “the flying Perfect.” From the opening lines: “The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end.”
MOON DUO play
Friday March 1st – Kings Arms, Auckland
Saturday March 2nd – Bodega, Wellington
