Weekly News - 8th March

  • The Grates will shortly be heading to Connecticut to record their sophomore LP. The chosen producer is one Peter Katis, a man responsible for recording The National's last two albums, Interpol's first two albums, forthcoming albums from Mates Of State and Tokyo Police Club, as well as mixing on The Grates' debut.
  • Wind&Brackets have won the Queensland leg of the Garage 2 V competition, beating out other locals the John Steel Singers, Grand Atlantic & Mikowai.
  • Those disappointed buy the imminent end of Milton's The Alley Bar won't have to look too far for a replacement. The Russian Club is a new all ages venue being run out of Woolloongabba. Keep an eye out for shows there (there's one on tonight actually).
  • It looks like the venerable 610 may be back in action. The Ann St venue is now being run by the 4C Arts Collective under the name the Valley Studios. I have no idea whether they will hold regular shows, or if it will be all ages still, but I have my fingers crossed.

4C had an event there last friday night with black mustang, villians of wilhelm, my fiction and a bunch of other artists, so it looks like it is well and truly holding events.
