18 February 2009 - Auckland Museum's second LATE at the Museum event showcases a solo performance by favourite New Zealand songwriter Don McGlashan. The evening also features Manuel Bundy and a panel discussion examining Auckland at the crossroads.

Following on from his successful tour of Europe with Crowded House, Don McGlashan will perform in Auckland Museum's Atrium on Thursday, 5 March at LATE 02: Supercity? A former member of Blam, Blam, Blam and The Mutton Birds, McGlashan's music has provided a soundtrack to generations of Aucklanders.

Manual Bundy, considered the 'Godfather' of New Zealand's hiphop culture, also performs on the night.

The LATE event features a panel discussion by Finlay Macdonald and guests, which asks "What makes us Auckland? Are we a 'tribal' city, and will a new political structure change our cultural fabric?"

Guest panellists include Don McGlashan; Chris Brown, co-writer of 8 Tribes: The Hidden Classes of New Zealand; 'kia ora lady' and chairwoman of Ngati Whatua Naida Glavish; and social commentator Gordon McLauchlan.

LATE 02 is the second in an on-going series entitled Whaddarya Now? The series of six takes its cue from former Governor General Sir Paul Reeves, who challenged Auckland Museum to celebrate identity as a dynamic, rather than settled state.

The first LATE, on Thursday, 5 February, was an enormous success. LATE 01: Waitangi Eve saw a capacity crowd enjoy a lively discussion on an evolving Maori and Pakeha identity. Over 800 people watched Submariner, KillaManRaro, Moana & the Tribe and Little Bushman perform in the Atirum.
