Weekly News - January 26th

  • The Brisbane Sound is the latest event to showcase Brisbane's musical heritage. Taking place over three days (7-9 March), the Brisbane Sound is touted as an insight into Brisbane's music and art scene from 1978 to 1983. The three nights will see performances from local luminaries such as Robert Forster (The Go-Betweens), Ed Kuepper (The Saints, Laughing Clowns), The Apartments, and The Deadnotes. The exhibition will be held at the Institute Of Modern Art (The Judith Wright Centre to some) and tickets are available now.
  • The Scul Hazzards have finished recording their new 7" which will be sold during their tour of Australia next month. The release will feature the excellent track 'Last Few Bucks' which you can listen to now on their myspace.
  • Another Invasion Day, another year of under-representation of Brisbane bands in Triple J's Hottest 100. Even perennial favourites Powderfinger only managed two spots ('I Don't Remember' at 66 and 'Lost & Running' at 15), while The Butterfly Effect made it in at 70 for 'Reach. Gold Coasters Operator Please also scored two entries. Thank god for 4ZzZ's Hot 100.
  • And unfortunately this week will see the last performance of two of Brisbane's most promising bands, The Night Crash and Shakes (Which doesn't bode well for my bands to watch list). Both bands are playing at The Zoo on Friday so make sure to catch them one last time.
