How many times have you looked at a gig lineup and thought to yourself, “Wow, that lineup is all dudes?” We could hazard a guess not too many times, as such if life in the music industry that bills are nearly always male dominated. We’ve all come to accept this, but now, thanks to a new regular gig in Brisbane, hopefully this might change.
Introducing Brisbabes, a night celebrating and showcasing the wealth of female talent on display in the River City – and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this. Teaming up with the new kid on the block when it comes to venues (and just quietly one of our absolute favourites) The Foundry, Brisbabes hopes to give all the musical ladies in our city the leg up they might not otherwise have received, as well as aiming to help form bonds and connections to those who might not have otherwise met before.
The first night of the quarterly event will see leading ladies MKO SUN, Gabriella Cohen and OK Badlands take to The Foundry stage in a night of praise for the oestrogen filled among us, as well as party gals DIDI and Sezzo showing off their DJ chops. Kicking off on Friday, October 9th, the genre spanning lineup not only showcases just how much Brisbane has to offer in terms of genres and styles, but puts a spotlight on three of the most exciting acts to come from the Queensland capital. From the undeniably impressive live show that MKO SUN brings every. single. time; to Gabriella Cohen’s nostalgic tinged rock n roll; to the sweet and beautiful sounds of newcomers OK Badlands, there’s something for everyone – and lots more to come.
Brisbabes #1 kicks off at 8pm, Friday October 9th at the Foundry. Tickets on sale NOW!
