Must see live music this week in Brisbane!

Do the post Bigsound blues have you down Brisbane?

So if the shenanigans of Bigsound last week have left you lost and longing for more dope tunes to sink your ear holes into we’ve got a list of some stellar acts
that are gracing Fortitude Valley with their tunes this week.

What’s happening on Thursday!

If you didn’t manage to catch bluesman Karl S Williams at Bigsound last week then you’re in for a treat, as he’ll be hitting The Bearded Lady this Thursday
night (14 th Sept). Or if you’re craving some classic guitar driven grooves to get you through the rest of your work week, then Melbourne rockers The Cherry Dolls  have got your back with a tasty line up at Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall as part of their recent LP release ‘Viva Los Dolls.’

What’s happening on Friday!

Heya Bar is turning up in your Friday night as the dudes and dudette from Chakra Efendi celebrate the fresh release of their new single “Don’t Go” with mates Wolver. Also, Mucho-Bravado babes I Know Leopard (SYD) are bringing their synth-pop prowess to Black Bear Lodge this Friday night supported by our very own dream pop beauty BANFF.

What’s happening on The Weekend!

And if this wasn’t enough, this Saturday at The Zoo, eclectic beauties Boss Moxi are performing a spesh 70 minute set of their full length sophomore album “Egotoxin” which is set to be released early next year. With supports by QUAZI, Valtozash and Julia R. Anderson, it’s sure to be an evening of feels.


The Garden – Matinee All-Ages Instore


$10 Tickets available at the door | 4PM
*This is an all-ages show but all under 18’s MUST be accompanied by a guardian over 18.West Coast neo-punk twins, moonlighting models and provocateurs, The Garden are heading to Australia for an East Coast tour and Sounds of The Suburbs appearance!The Garden represent a new, youthful punk scene of the West Coast, with their DIY principles, thrift store-come glam-come 50s housewife fashion style and a list of pick‘n’ mix influences that stretch far beyond The Minutemen. Their minimalistic twopiece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and immediate. They strip away everything unnecessary about modern punk and get straight to the heart of it.Fact is, The Garden don’t give a damn what you think, they’ve been conceptualising their own style since well before the formation of the band in 2011. The constantly evolving duo from Orange County, Calif consistently defying genre and categorization, so much so, that they created their own term Vada-Vada* to define their sound and escape being pigeonholed.With four releases up their sleeve; three EPs and their debut album ‘The Life And Times Of A Paperclip’ via Burger Records in 2012, the duo have become known for their fast, simplistic, and heavy style. On their debut, they tear through 16 tracks in about the same about of time, with zero time to take a breath.

The duo, not only have captured the attention of the punk scene, but by way of Saint Laurent and creative director, Hedi Slimane. The fashion powerhouse recently paid big bucks to fly these two punks to Paris for Fashion Week, so touring scoundrels Bone Soup thought, “to hell with it, we’ll bring them to Australia”.

The Garden’s shows are experiential and powerful. Arresting a sense of urgency, they throw you heavily into into their parallel world of vada-vada. The duo seduces their audience onto a carnival ride of sound and movement that stops as abruptly as it starts; a close approximation of The Garden experience.

* Vada-Vada: “an idea that represents pure creative expression, that disregards all previously made genres and ideals” – Wyatt Shears (The Garden), 2015
