MEOW, Wellington

Event Details

The one and only Lucy Dacus returns to Aotearoa this June with her band to play two very special shows: June 4 in Auckland at Hollywood Avondale & June 5 in Wellington at Meow.

Recently labelled as “one of the best songwriters of her generation” by Rolling Stone, Lucy Dacus arrives in New Zealand on the back of her sold out UK / EU Tour.
 
 Fans can expect to catch Dacus playing songs from her celebrated album Home Video (out now on Matador / Remote Control), which was featured in countless ‘best albums of 2021’ lists.  The New York Times said “Lucy Dacus’s wrenching third studio album [Home Video] is as much an achievement of memoir as it is of songwriting”, while The Guardian called it “some of the year’s best musical storytelling ..  her writing newly amplified by subtle hints of pop propulsion and grit that evoked how Elliott Smith expanded his sound” and Time Magazine enthused “the best lyrics aren’t just beautifully poetic or descriptive, but also conjure a whole universe that lies just beyond them and out of reach. . .  Lucy Dacus is a master at this craft”. 


Lucy Dacus’ voice has a healer’s power to soothe and ground and reckon - New Zealand audiences are in for a very special treat.
