Pig City

This year's Queensland Music Festival will feature a unique one-off event showcasing the history of rock music in Brisbane. Pig City, to be held at the University Of Queensland, will see performances by bands who have shaped the Brisbane music scene. The lineup features the quintessential line-up of The Saints, The Riptides, The Apartments, Kev Carmody, Screamfeeder, David McCormack, Regurgitator, the Ups and Downs, the Pineapples From The Dawn Of Time, and Kate Miller-Heidke. Tickets are going for $60 and can be picked up from Rocking Horse or the University Of Queensland Bookshop.

Now this is sure to be a once in a lifetime event so I made sure to get my ticket this week. I was, however, greeted with surprise by the lady at the UQ Bookshop. Apparently i was the first person under the age of 30 to purchase a ticket (she had sold about 100). Come on kids! What are you doing?! Obviously you are all poorly educated so over the next week or so we here at Before Hollywood will be giving you the juicy goss on the acts preforming at Pig City. First up will be the Saints so keep an eye on this space!
