The Brisbane music scene continues to go from strength to strength lately. From a string of warehouse parties in Bowen Hills and Albion, boutique festivals like Jungle Love or The Blurst of Times, and new venues popping up bringing something new to the mix like The Brightside or The Triffid as well as old favourites (The Zoo, The Hifi) – it seems more and more people are starting to notice what we’ve got here!
Punters also seem to have a new found appreciation for the live scene, and often are spoiled for choice for who to go and see that night. Whilst it’s never received the same recognition as our cousins in New South Wales and Victoria have, the Brisbane music scene is positively thriving!
Now, with the imminent opening of new venue The Foundry, things are about to get even better! Officially opening it’s doors on March 6, The Foundry is a two story creative hub: downstairs is a 300-capacity performance space, with all the drinking and smoking areas you could hope for, and upstairs will turn into offices, temporary band accommodation, a recording studio and rehearsal space!
To celebrate the opening of such an awesome concept, they are throwing one hell of a party on the official opening night. Locking down Brisbane’s Velociraptor (member Corey Herekihua is one of the key managers of the venue), as well as SPOD and White Lodge, things will certainly be kicking off with more than a bang!
In the coming month, WAAX, Babaganouj, Day Ravies, Harts, Rolls Bayce, Hound and Oslow will also take to The Foundry stage, adding serious competition to Brisbane’s already booming Friday and Saturday night gig scenes!
You can buy tickets HERE for the opening night, and like The Foundry’s Facebook page HERE to try and keep up with them!
