Quite how and why the rocking Canadian three-piece OFOF would tour New Zealand (see dates below) and play for free is an interesting question. But not one we need trouble ourselves with.
Because they are playing for free. And there just isn't enough free stuff in the world.
It is said they are gathering material for an album to be entitled Three to Kiwi (their previous one is reviewed here) so maybe that's reason enough to junket down from British Columbia.
And anyway inspiration for their previous album came after a couple of them went off to Peru.
So they are certainly using music as their passport.
Covering blues, country, rock and reggae, OFOF wil doubtless pull decent audiences. And why not.

David Bowie sang, “Five years, that's all we've got . . .” You would spend them where, doing . . .?
We'd spend them touring an endless summer around the world
And finally, in the nature of press conferences in Japan, “Can you tell me please why this is your best album ever?”
I don't think this is our best album ever because the next album is always gonna be better.
