All you lovers of the bizarre better hold on to your tin foil hats because outsider musician, actor and painter David Liebe Hart is landing in Mount Maunganui this month.
Hosted by Tauranga Music Sux, the avant-garde American artist backed by electronic wiz Jonah ‘Th’ Mole’ Mociun and supported by local acts Nuggiez and Wheatbags Anonymous will be taking to the stage at Totara Street in the Mauao Performing Arts Centre on April 18.
Known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, plus appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, this upcoming gig is part of David’s first tour of New Zealand and promises to be an event never, ever, ever seen before in the Mount.
The mould was broken when David was made. Not only does he have a vast and bizarre catalogue of songs about aliens, religion, and failed relationships under his belt, but he’s also communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains.
Over the past decade, the 61-year-old has amassed a huge and die-hard fan base, thanks largely to David’s good-heartedness, honesty and hilarious idiosyncrasies, as well his fun and engaging stage shows.
DLH and ‘Th’ Mole’ will perform electronic versions of David's old favourites plus new songs, accompanied by puppets, projected video accompaniment, and his oddly endearing stories of past relationships and paranormal encounters.
David Liebe Hart with Jonah ‘Th’ Mole’ Mociun, supported by Nuggiez and Wheatbags Anonymous, play Totara Street in Mount Maunganui on Tuesday, April 18. Doors 8pm. R18 gig. Tickets cost $20 + BF and available online at undertheradar.co.nz
