The Weather Machine w/ Hihi & The Stitchbirds

The Weather Machine return to the Firebird Cafe in Levin to kick off their Matariki weekend (lower) north island tour, with support from Hihi & The Stitchbirds.
One part soulful longing, two parts theatrical glam, and a heaping spoonful of retro-nostalgia indie-rock abandon, The Weather Machine is a tasty, wholesome audio treat. Hailing from the rainy green river city of Portland, Oregon, project lead Slater Smith has been troubadouring under the band-moniker The Weather Machine for the better part of a decade, churning out record after heartfelt record. Smith and his friends forged their musical relationships during their early days tracking songs in basements, steeping themselves in the DIY folk-rocker lifestyle and the love for musical collaboration that Smith has never really been able to get enough of.
In 2021 he relocated The Weather Machine to Te Whanganui-a-Tara, following his heart and his lovely partner to her (and now his new) home country. During the ensuing years a new chapter of The Weather Machine began to take shape amongst new Wellington muso collaborators.
Hihi & The Stitchbirds are an exciting new five-piece musical experiment, based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. The band pride themselves on their eclectic collection of musical instruments - banjo ukulele and shruti box to name just two. Pairing rich vocal harmonies with vibrant songs from the folk and Americana playbooks, this band brings something to delight everyone.
