8pm - Live music: SJD
SJD is the nom-de-disque of Sean James Donnelly. Since his first self-released album 3 he has unleashed a series of five stunning records for the Round Trip Mars label.

Amongst those Lost Soul Music introduced a wider audience to Sean's unique vision with songs like Tree People and A Boy , while Southern Lights picked up two Tuis in the 2005 NZ Music Awards and included Superman, You're Crying and the much licensed, The Clean sampling From A To B Or Not To Be.

Subsequent albums Songs From A Dictaphone and Dayglo Spectres further solidified Sean's impeccable rep with stone cold classics like Beautiful Haze, I Wrote This Song For You and No Telling Where.

Following a stint as co-producer and keyboard player in Neil Finn's Pajama Club, and marshalling an all star cast for the Breast Cancer Foundation release of Chris Knox's Not Given Lightly, Sean has returned to his solo synthesized roots with a stunning set of new songs on the 2012 release Elastic Wasteland.
