Laneway 2012

I'm super-excited for the Auckland Laneway Festival, 30th January!

Here is a helpful little guide I made for myself. I thought I'd share it here. It's missing a few NZ artists (Shane P Carter, Pajama Club). It's a basic note on each artist; their albums are numbered below. (Thanks wikipedia!!)
