Brisbane venue The Foundry had a bit of a rocky start earlier this year, and was forced to shut it’s doors due to unforeseen circumstances. What we did see of it had us extremely excited indeed, which is why we are heading that way again with the news that it will be returning to shake things up in the Brisbane music scene at the end of this month!
On August 22nd, The Foundry will once again welcome punters with one hell of a “We’re Baaaaack!” party. Although they had a launch party for the initial launch with performances by Velociraptor, Spod, White Lodge and more, this time around they’re getting even more hectic.
Taking Dune Rats, Palms, Orphans Orphans and Major Leagues along for the ride, it looks as if the Re-launch Party could maybe out-do it’s predecessor. With all four of those acts having a pretty huge time right now, not only does this lineup show that The Foundry folk still have their finger on the pulse, they also know how to have a fucking good time. Whilst the Dunies and Major Leagues will be rocking it upstairs, Palms and Orphans Orphans will be melting faces in the new downstairs part.
That’s right! Going from one live music room to two, the final most exciting addition to The Foundry 2.0 is Foundry Records: a record shop/bar/cafe with a small stage inside. The now three level, 300 capacity venue is revolutionising Australian music venues. Considering it was “built by musicians”, they’ve taken everything into account. Housing three shared meeting rooms, two rehearsal rooms, one recording studio, band accommodation, and offices that now belong to some of Brisbane’s finest in the music industry (from record labels, bands, event organisers and more), this really is a new creative hub that is the first of it’s kind in the River City. It literally cannot get better than this!
Tickets have been limited to 100 for the public, and they’re already on sale. Take this writer’s word for it and get on the remaining few ASAP! This is not a night to miss!
