What’s on in Brisbane this weekend!


The weekend is packed full of killer gigs, so lets start with Sydney based rock chick Ruby Fields. She’s gracing yours truly, Foundry Records, with an under eighteens gig from four in the arv before hitting up Black Bear Lodge in the evening for the rest of her fans/mates. Touring on her recently released single “P Plates”, if you’re after some catchy melodic rock then get yourself to one of her shows.  Otherwise, if your Friday eve is in need of a concoction of alternative rock mixed with a hint of existential dread, then the boys from Jouk Mistrow have your back. Celebrating the release of their third EP “End This Mess”, the Brissy quartet take to the stage at their fave drinking hole The Foundry as part of Bedlam Records and Grain’s monthly instalment of “Why Thank You.” However if the Valley isn’t your scene then head on over to The Bearded Lady in West End and get your punk on as Brissy boys Hound release their first full length album, and on wax no less! Supported by Soviet X-Ray Record Club and Cold Cuts, it’s sure to be a night full of distorted guitars and heavy beats for you to head bang all your work woes outward.

Saturday evening brings our fave psych pop boys The Belligerents to the stage as they celebrate the release of their long awaited debut LP “Science Fiction”. Bringing their new material out to play on tour, you can see the boys get groovy at The Zoo with special guests IVEY and Sydney-ites Bus Vipers. Tickets are selling quick for this one though so if you’re down to jive then get amongst. However if you’re after less dreamy psych pop and are feelin’ a harder, rockier vibe then head on over to The Foundry for Sydney’s hardcore lads Endless Heights. Touring around Aus on the release of their single “You Coward”, they’ve coined a stellar line up of mates such as Adelaide’s Horror My Friend and our Brisbane boys Vitals to keep the night alive. So come down, get out of the house and out of your head for an evening with some ace tunes.
