This is Noriko, of  George and Noriko  fame, at Coastella 2018 who, well best to let them tell you: George and Noriko break all the rules. The duo brings something unique, something unexpected. Known as the Japanese Blues Cowboy and the Tsugaru shamisen player, they have been kicking up a storm wherever they play.  George’s lightning fast blues licks & growling harmonica enhanced by Noriko’s percussive of the traditional Shamisen (Japanese banjo) has morphed into a kind of bluegrass hard country blues with a Japanese twist. It's quite something - go listen to their music, it's pretty bloody kick ass.

Where's your worm now!?!?Whilst Wellingtonista Towers is home to the funky, the hip and the connected it also houses the dads, mums and general caregivers to the next generation of the funky, hip and connected.

For those that are also parents can I recommend the latest Kapitall Kids Theatre show at the Gryphon Theatre of Spike Milligan's Badjelly the Witch

Whilst a paid theatre reviewer would probably use phrases such as "professional", "engaging", "a delight", "something for the adults" and "a must see for all the family" my son and I can only say - GO! It's a total hoot and you'll love the music (pop), jokes (topical) and acting (awesome).
