  Lisa Mitchell, Oh Mercy and White Birds & Lemons played to a Sold Out Show at the Zoo on Friday 28th August 2009 in the 1st Night of the tour to promote Lisa Mitchell’s 2nd album Wonder which debuted on July 31, 2009.

4 piece band White Birds & Lemons originally from Devonport on the North Shore of Auckland, but now living in Melbourne totally wowed the fans at the Zoo on Friday night. Using an electronic drumset which you don’t see much of with live bands, they had the crowd swaying and nodding to their techno-pop rock songs. Playing songs from their first album “Who Says You’re Free?” and more, they left the punters on a high. After listening to their song “Gambler” on their website, White Birds & Lemons are even better live. Can’t wait for a new album to arrive. White Birds & Lemons were a good selection for the 1st band on a great night of entertainment.

After two decades of unending death metal torment, the band’s calling cards are many: the depraved lyrics, the blinding technical prowess, the dominating stage presence, the legions of dedicated fans, the million and a half albums sold.

Cannibal Corpse are slashing their way back to Australia and New Zealand to skewer us as all from ear to ear in support of their new album “Evisceration Plague”!
