The Catalyst Road Show Presents The Eastern and the Republic of Poets

Featuring Republic of Poets – Ben Brown, Doc Drumheller, and Andy Coyle – with musical accompaniment by The Stray Empire.

…followed by a full for on the floor performance by The Eastern

The Eastern are a string band that roars like a punk band, that swings like a gospel band, that drinks like a country band, that works like a bar band, that hopes like folk singers, and sings love songs like union songs, and writes union songs like love songs, and wants to slow dance and stand on tables, all at the same time.

This Thursday they will be performing songs from all four of their critically acclaimed albums aided by the spectacular acoustics of the new Rangiora Hall. The Republic of Poets will open the evening with a performance poetry experience that is mesmerizing.
