Richard Orjis: Salt Felix

Melanie Roger Gallery, Wed 13 Sep-Sat 7 Oct

We’re all just pieces in one big puzzle, right? Well, artist Richard Orjis thinks so. His new exhibition, Salt Felix, explores how everything and everyone is linked and examines this concept of connection through looking at how different cultures use gardens. Orjis’ work will be presented through the mediums of sculpture and photography. 444 Karangahape Rd, central city

Starman

Auckland Town Hall, Thu 14–Sun 17 Sep

Starman, part of Auckland Live’s International Cabaret Season, is a flamboyant affair inspired by Bowie’s music and performed by cabaret superstar Sven Ratzke. You certainly won’t be looking away. Queen St, central city

Kevin Bridges

ASB Theatre, Wed 27–Thu 28 Sep

We like to put our trust in a good comedian like Billy Connolly, so when he dubbed Scottish comedian Kevin Bridges “brilliant”, we know it translates to a good old belly laugh. Selling out quickly.

Southern Fork Americana Fest 

The Tuning Fork, Sat 7–Sun 15 Oct

The Tuning Fork will be the home to alt-country and Americana music for one week this October. Included in the line-up is Nashville-born songwriter Justin Townes Earle, supported by The Sadies, Wellington’s Eb & Sparrow (above) and cult country band Son Volt. We’ll never say this again... but, giddy up and head on down. 42–80 Mahuhu Cres, central city

The Georgies

Galatos, Fri 8 Sep

The Georgies are here to round up the best in music and lifestyle. George FM’s inaugural awards celebrate top New Zealand talent, across a range of categories including music, fashion and food. The awards night will be set to the tunes of Kings, Theia (above), Baynk and Nika. 17 Galatos St, central city

LATE 2017: Allied Values

Paperboy is delighted to support Auckland Museum’s LATE talk series. This month, Leonie Hayden (above) talks to Nicky Hager, Jane Kelsey, Jim Bolger and Maiki Sherman about New Zealand’s international relations. Auckland Domain, Parnell. Win tickets here!

Vogue Ball

Neck of the Woods, Fri 15 Sep

Put your best pose forward for the Vogue Ball, a raucous celebration of the dance style that takes a K’ Rd club by storm every month. Sprinkle the glitter, don the stilettos and get ready to werq it.
Neck of the Woods, Fri 15 Sep

Soft Tissue

Basement Theatre, Tue 26–Sat 30 Sep

A debut work by writer Ella Gilbert, directed by Jade Eriksen, Soft Tissue addresses the restrictions and high expectations placed around women. A very physical piece. Basement Theatre, Tue 26–Sat 30 Sep

Herb Foley: It’s What I Do

Warwick Henderson Gallery, Wed 6 Sep–Sat 23 Sep

Artist Herb Foley moved from Christchurch to Kerikeri after the 2011 earthquakes and now makes art inspired by the bush at the bottom of his property. The paintings in his exhibition, It’s What I Do, are all acrylic on canvas and created with lush greens and vibrant reds. 255 Broadway, Newmarket

Auckland Heritage Festival

Various locations, Sat 30 Sep–Sun 15 Oct

History nuts, this will be your thing. More than 170 free or cheap-as-chips events will take place across Auckland to celebrate the heritage of transport on both our land and waterways. Explore Waitemat¯a Harbour’s former ‘waterway highways’ by ferry or head out for a packed lunch, Victorian style.
