Random stuff about Wellington since 2005

Need more umlauting in your October?

by Joanna on October 9, 2012 in Events, Music

In 2010, hairy classic rock/metal fan Dave Keyes started throwing non-profit DressUp-RockOut events and the Gods of Rock Awards at his workplace.

In 2010 Wellington Rocks’ Rocktober event raised $1300 for the Cancer Society and then in 2011 the Gods of Rock event raised $2600 to split evenly between the Cancer Society and the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal for Christchurch. They’re doing it all over again this year, and you should go along.

Rock Gods Gather For Rocktober
Wellington’s annual and charitable tribute to rock fans

Wellington’s annual Rocktober: Tribute party, is a night of pure rock/metal indulgence. On Saturday, 13th October some 300-400 revelers will be rocking through the evening and into the night, as top notch tribute bands bring AC/DC, Guns n Roses, Maiden, Mötley, Motörhead & Metallica to life – along with rock DJs belting out classics.

All the while, select judges will scour the crowd for the 2012 Gods of Rock Awards contenders and winners. So get dressed up and rock out big time for your chance to claim trophies & prizes as Air Guitar Legend, Dance Demon and Ultimate Rock God!

It’s also a party, gig & awards event with a cause, as all profits from ticket sales go to the Cancer Society of New Zealand, Wellington Division. \m/
