From the Dominion Post: Gig-goers at the San Francisco Bath House on Saturday night spotted a herd of hobbits among the crowd. Not only was head hobbit Martin Freemen there, but he was accompanied by a crowd of 4ft (1.20-meter) stand-ins used to create the correct scale in Sir Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, being filmed in Wellington. A diarist reports that no only were other music-lovers excited by celeb spotting, but they said it was great that, for once, they could see over the heads in front. [The Dominion Post]
