  Matt Costa Unfamiliar Faces
Digirama Matt Costa - Unfamiliar Faces

The brand new studio album by Matt Costa is now in stores and online everywhere.

“Unfamiliar Faces” features the defiantly melodic single “Mr Pitiful”


Matt will be in town touring with J Johnson later this week, and doing his own show in Auckland on March 19th at The Kings Arms.










The promoters confirm that they do not encourage or condone bringing children under 5 years of age to an outdoor concert.

Should patrons determine the event to be appropriate to children under 5 years of age, they will be admitted (with parental accompaniment) but against the express advice of the event promoters.

Patrons are advised that this is an outdoor music event in a limited capacity venue. There is not adequate space within the venue for patrons to lay out picnic blankets. If patrons wish to bring something to sit on they may consider bringing something that is of little value (such as a plastic sheet). At all times security will exercise discretion and may require the items be cloaked.

All other conditions of entry as advertised on the tour websites remain unchanged.



Dave Rastovich talks music and ocean conservation.

Information on the upcoming shows


The Jack Johnson tour is almost upon our shores. Here are a few thoughts to prepare yourself for the concert;


  • Consider taking public transport to the shows to reduce your carbon footprint.
  • If you drive take friends with you. A number of the venues have discounted parking for those people car-pooling.
  • If you smoke then bring an old film canister to use as an ashtray
  • Be considerate of the venue, especially our beautiful parkland sites, and put rubbish into the correct bin to recycle.
  • Bring something warm to wear for later in the night.
  • Be prepared for rain by bringing a rain slick or wind cheater. Umbrellas are not allowed into any of the venues.




February 20th 2008


Coming to New Zealand as a special guest on the Jack Johnson tour, Matt Costa, the 25 year old former skateboarder now one of the most buzzed about emerging artists, will be playing an intimate headlining show in Auckland only:





Since Matt’s last visit to this part of the world, he’s been back in the studio recording the follow up to his beautiful, folky, full-length debut Songs We Sing. Where his debut displayed his gentle artistry and skilful acoustic guitar playing, the new album Unfamiliar Faces (out March 10th through Universal) finds Matt Costa wrapping his appealing melodies in increasingly ambitious packages that recall the Shins & Spoon.


Leading with the spunky piano-driven opener “Mr Pitiful” and the country-tinged acoustic “Never Looking Back” to the jangly power-pop of “Emergency Call”, Unfamiliar Faces traverses many musical styles resulting in an effortlessly intoxicating musical experience.


Don’t miss Matt Costa live and intimate.

James Fletcher – Drums

Harris Pittman IV – Bass Guitar

Fans are invited to visit the Village Green at all of Jack shows


The All At Once Community: An individual action, multiplied by millions, creates global change.  

All At Once is a social action network providing information, tools and motivation to empower individuals to become active in their local and world community.  All At Once brings together non-profit organizations and fans to create change with their actions, their voice, and their choices. 


Village Green

All At Once comes to life at each concert site in the Village Green, a collection of interactive booths where fans can educate themselves, get inspired, and connect face-to-face with local, national, and international non-profits.  Upon arrival at the show (or when visiting the Village Green), fans will receive an All At Once Village Green passport containing a welcome letter from Jack, information on All At Once, the Village Green, non-profits, and Jack’s greening efforts – plus a free song download.  If fans visit and complete an action at three or more Village Green booths, they can enter to win the “best seat in the house,” a seat on stage to watch Jack’s performance that night.


In addition to the interactive fan experience, Jack Johnson and his crew are taking actions to minimize the environmental impact of their world tour, including:

  • Providing on-site water stations, waste management and recycling services.
  • Reducing waste by encouraging each of the venues to use biodegradable food service items.
  • Using Biodiesel (where available) to fuel on-site generators. 
  • Offering eco-friendly tour merchandise, including organic cotton clothing, reusable water bottles, and tote bags.
  • Minimizing distribution of paper at shows and using 100% recycled paper and soy-based inks for all printed materials.
  • Using sustainable and recycled materials whenever possible for Village Green tents and banners.
  • Offsetting all remaining CO2 emissions from the tour and for each night’s show.


Impact will be tracked throughout the tour to demonstrate how collective action can result in significant change. An end-of-tour report will be available on this site.


Non-Profit Groups

The Jack Johnson tour is collaborating with hand-chosen community groups around the world who are working in the realms of climate change, water quality, community and school gardens, land preservation, environmental education and more.  Tour proceeds will go to these groups to support their projects; Jack Johnson will match every dollar donated at the shows or online at  to the local non-profit groups (up to $3,175 NZD per group).  Below is a list of the groups that will be present at all the New Zealand shows:

Nik Tischler and Michael Coppel, in conjunction with ZM, are also pleased to announce the 2008 New Zealand tour for JACK JOHNSON. Its been 3 long years since JACK last performed in NZ, and he returns this coming March with MATT COSTA in support for what will be three only much anticipated performances.

The 2008 tour sees JACK return to Christchurch, as well as making first time visits to Napier and Plymouth. The beautiful outdoor settings at the Church Road Winery and the TSB Bowl of Brooklands will give fans a chance to head out of town, see the show, and spend the Easter long weekend in idyllic surroundings.

JACK JOHNSON will be returning to New Zealand’s shores with a new album under his belt, and a back catalogue of hits spanning his multi-platinum selling albums "Brushfire Fairytales", "On and On", and "In Between Dreams". The shows promise New Zealand audiences the extraordinary live experience they have come to know and love over the past 8 years, as he performs such classics as "Inaudible Melodies", "Sitting Waiting Wishing", "Flake", "Taylor", "Times Like These" and many more.

As a precursor to the forthcoming tour, the brand new single "If I Had Eyes" is set to be released here on Boxing Day, with the album due to hit stores Feb 4th, 2008.

Special guest for the tour will be Brushfire Records label mate MATT COSTA. Its the release of COSTA’S sophomore release “Unfamiliar Faces", with its appealing melodies reminiscent of the Shins, Spoon and Ben Folds, that sees him out on the road this coming March. While the two fellow musicians have toured together several times internationally and collaborated on numerous soundtrack projects, this will be their first time in NZ together.

With tickets selling out on in record time for JACK’S last New Zealand tour, fans should get in early to avoid missing out on what’s shaping up to be the must see tour of 2008.

November 22, 2007


Jack Johnson - If I Had EyesThe wait is finally over, this coming Tuesday 27th November - Jack Johnson is set to launch his first track ‘If I Had Eyes’ from his forthcoming 5th album ‘Sleep Through The Static’.


On ‘If I Had Eyes,’ the electric riff gives a sharp edge to lyrics about the sad dissolution of a long-term relationship - ‘If I had eyes in the back of my head/ I would have told you you looked good as you walked away.’


The album was recorded at the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in Los Angeles (the eco-friendly studio Jack had built last year, which runs entirely on solar power), and the Mango Tree in Hawai. It was co produced by Jack Johnson and JP Plunier, the producer from his first album “Brushfire Fairytales".


Lineup for the record was Jack's longtime band members Adam Topol (drums), Merlo Podlewski (bass) and Zach Gill of ALO (keys) who joined the band as a full time member during their 2005 tour to support “In Between Dreams".


In the 2 years since the divine “In Between Dreams" album came out, Jack has been spending time with his family, and focusing on the Kokua Hawaii Foundation which he started with his wife that focuses on recycling programs and education in Hawaii's schools.


Since 2005 Jack has also since released the soundtrack to the animated film Curious George and contributed covers of John Lennon's "Imagine" to Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur, and Bob Dylan's "Mama, You've Been On My Mind" to the soundtrack to the Dylan biopic "I'm Not There"

Bloody Monday

November 06, 2007


imageDave Rastovich, Hayden Panettiere and Other Real-Life Heroes Make A Daring Pre-dawn Mission Back to Japanese Dolphin Killing Cove.


TOKYO- Less than 24 hours after professional surfer Dave Rastovich led an international group of over 30 surfers, celebrities, and musicians on a peaceful paddle-out ceremony to honor the more than 25,000 dolphins killed each year in Japan, fishermen in the tiny village of Taiji resumed the slaughter that had been delayed by the increased worldwide media attention.


In response, the surfers decided in solidarity to make a pre-dawn return to the killing cove to recreate the ceremony, albeit with fewer people to evade detection. Rastovich and the others paddled within a stone’s throw of a pod of captive pilot whales and their calves that had been herded into the cove for early morning slaughter.


“The reason we surfers were there was to share the blood-stained waters at eye-level with our ocean kin awaiting their execution," said a dripping, visibly shaken Rastovich just after paddling in. “Despite the fishermen taking great pains to hide their acts of cruelty, we seized an opportunity to bring this travesty to the world’s attention."


Taiji-area fishermen, who kill dolphins and whales for their meat, netted off the bay and constructed green tarps to shield the slaughter from prying eyes and front-line cetacean activists bent on shutting down the dolphin trade forever. When the surfers learned of the imminent slaughter, they did not hesitate to return despite the distinct possibility of violent resistance and police arrest.


Rastovich and his core team of surfers trailed by camera crews arrived at the infamous Taiji cove to paddle out to the captured pilot whales. After entering the water they quickly arrived alongside the whales who swam back and forth along the edge of the seaward net.


The six paddlers, including Rastovich, his wife mermaid model Hannah Fraser, Heroes TV star Hayden Panettiere, Australian actress Isabel Lucas, author Peter Heller and professional surfer Karina Petroni, formed a traditional surfers’ memorial circle situated between the whales and the blood-ridden shallows.


Local fishermen converged almost immediately, harassing the paddlers with yelled threats and advancing on them with whirling propeller blades. The irate fishermen, who yelled “Why are you here? Go Home!" then used a long wooden pole to attack and intimidate the surfers.


“Even though the fishermen used force to try and break us up we held our peaceful stance. The feeling in the circle was of incredible strength" said mermaid model Hannah Fraser.


With tensions escalating and the police sirens growing, the surfers quickly paddled back to shore where a distraught Hayden Panettiere fell to her knees sobbing, overwhelmed by the carnage she and the group had just witnessed.


“I couldn’t believe how red the water was," said Panettiere. “The whales were so scared. Hopefully their deaths won’t be in vain."


After hightailing it out of Taiji, 30 policemen readied with a paddy wagon stopped the three-van convoy at the border of the Wakayama prefecture. After politely checking passports and questioning the group intently, the police waved the crew on their way.


Rastovich expressed extreme sorrow, saying “With many nets and kill boats waiting beyond the cove, the fishermen’s intense desire to kill left no room for escape."


Reflecting on the day’s experience, a somber Isabel Lucas expressed that the worst part was that the whales are probably all dead by now. “We couldn’t save these whales but hopefully shining the light on their deaths will save others."

Rogue Wave supports Natalie Portman's Charity

October 31, 2007


imageBrushfire wanted you to be the first to know that Rogue Wave has released an exclusive new track as part of a special iTunes charity mix we put together with Natalie Portman and other artists from the independent music community. The mix, Big Change: Songs for FINCA, will directly benefit microfinance organization FINCA International, which gives loans to people living on less than $2 a day in the developing world so they can start small businesses that will help them lift themselves and their families out of poverty. All net proceeds from the album, which costs $7.99 on iTunes, go to FINCA’s Village Banking programs around the globe.


When Natalie approached us about giving a little bit of our time and creativity, and told us how these small loans can make such a big impact, we didn’t hesitate to get involved. We hope you will feel the same way.


Tell your friends about Big Change: Songs for FINCA, and ask them to spread the word. As little as $50 can be turned into one loan that can impact an entire family. Imagine the impact you can have if you buy the album and ask all of you friends to follow your lead; or make a commitment to give it as a holiday gift with real social impact. This is a powerful way to get involved in the global fight against poverty.


Watch the Village Banking Campaign on MySpace and Facebook to keep up-to-date on the album’s success – and the huge impact we are making together for the world’s poor.
