This Auckland venue is a rite of passage for bands and gig-goers from around the country and one of the best places to catch rising international stars.

The KA is just shy of its third decade, which in music venue terms makes it an institution. Anthonie Tonnon visits the venue and its matriarch, Maureen Gordon.
