11:06 The Gunslingers Ball

Over the past two years The Gunslinger's Ball has grown from the occasional evening of country-fried revelry to what the New Zealand Herald has described as a “wild musical feast of alt-country, cowboy, punk, folk and country blues bands."

This definitely isn't your nana's hoedown. Straddling the divide between heartfelt alt-country, raucous blues, rockabilly brashness and punk bristle, the Gunslinger's Ball melts down musical barriers to the point where there are none. This is a show by and for outlaws.

Radio New Zealand was on hand to record the Powerstation show in October 2012 - featuring Great North, Tami Neilson, The Bads, The Tattletale Saints, The Broadsides and Bernie Griffin and The Grifters.
