A party after Auckland's biggest live music event will feature four up-and-coming bands from the queer music scene.

Big Day Out afterparty: Prince Diana

Prince Diana, Thought Creature, Curfew Girls and Golden Axe will play from 11pm at K' Road's Whammy Bar in St. Kevin's Arcade after the Big Day Out at Mount Smart Stadium on Friday 16 January.

Prince Diana includes Sohomo resident Babes! Babes! Babes!, who will also provide DJ support at the party, along with Giorfio Mordor.

On tour from Wellington, Thought Creature is a guitar pop band who recently released a debut album and has been playing gigs across the Tasman.

The four girls who make up queercore band Curfew Girls have been described as "UK punks and NYC electro rappers on pause," and provide "punk riffs, homo anthems and distorting ditties" in their live set.

A three-piece bringing synthy tech music, Golden Axe use aesthetic visuals in their performance. They're well known on the streets of Auckland and play regularly with sound-art / rock crowds.

The doors open at Whammy Bar at 11pm for Party on After, with a $10 cover charge.
