If you're in the know then, perhaps, you know about Slug's Saloon--and maybe you know a few from the echelon who played there.

Per Radio New Zealand National, a recent venture from Orchestra of Spheres' Daniel Beban, who runs Wellington sound exploration space The Pyramid Club met a slick fellow who ran the joint.

What Beban uncovered at an Orchestra of Spheres Golden Bay's Mussel Inn concert, was the owner, Jay Schultz, who is now known as Gopal Krishna and a resident in Onekaka.
