Broods to play homecoming gig

Broods have been signed for a Nelson gig in June.

The popular duo, Nelson siblings Georgia and Caleb Nott, have been booked by Nelson Underage, an initiative of the Youth and Community Trust, to play here.

Nathan Telford, of Nelson Underage, says it is "absolutely huge" to have secured Broods.

"They are home-town heroes here. They have gone and actively pursued their dream; now they are coming back to give something back to Nelson."

The final date and venue are yet to be decided.

Georgia Nott says they are looking forward to the gig.

"We've been nagging our management to make a Nelson gig happen, and we're now so excited to finally get to return home to play for our family and friends," she says.

Georgia and Caleb were members of the Garin College indie rock band, The Peasants, who won Smokefreerockquest in 2011. They formed Broods in early 2013 and began collaborating with international teen star Lorde's producer, Joel Little.

They've since signed deals with major record labels in the UK and USA, and toured in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and had sell out shows in the US.

This Saturday, Nelson Underage is holding its first winter gig, Word on the Street - a hip hop competition and dance party at the Stoke Memorial Hall.
