The line up for the Live in Lincoln Selwyn Sounds concert at Lincoln Domain will also feature the Jordan Luck Band, Sharon O’Neill, Annie Crummer, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood and former Opshop frontman Jason Kerrison, as well as other local bands, including from Lincoln High School. And it’s hoped the event will not be just a one off. Local events company 3 Coins Gentlemen, which is staging it with sponsorship from the Flemington subdivision, aims to hold the concert in Lincoln on an annual basis. Event organiser David Parlane said he was pleased to have assembled such an outstanding line up for the first event. “We all remember what we were doing when these artists first came into the music scene in New Zealand, and to have them perform all these years later with new material as well as old is an honour for the town,” he said. “We were just getting sick and tired of all of the big things that were happening in [Christchurch] and we’re only 22km away with some great facilities so we just thought ‘why not?’” Mr Parlane said. Mi-Sex, best known for their 1979 single Computer Games, recently reformed and are about to release their new album Not From Here. •Turn to page 7 LIVE: The Jordan Luck Band will join Mi Sex and Dragon (right) for a concert in Lincoln.
