Top 10 Brisbane Revelry On this week 28/03/2021
Silly rabbit. Pricks are for the privately insured.
10) Basement Sessions
What: Descend into the dank basement of a newly opened club in the valley with a new series of events. For this instalment, you will be enjoying a tasty, intense and mysterious selection of bass music.
Why: Turns out a serial killer isn’t the worst thing you could encounter in a dank basement. At least with the serial killer they’d eventually chop your ears off.
9) Brisbane RnB Jam
What: Showcasing some of the best artists going around in an environment that suits all music lovers from soul, hip hop, RnB, and just all-round good music. If RnB is your jam then you have come to the right place.
Why: And if it isn’t your jam, come anyway. It’s any place that’s not your house.
8) All White Boat Party
What: There is no better way to celebrate Easter weekend than out on a boat sipping chilled drinks with mates with a nice sunset and ocean view. DJ Dred and DJ Terry will be on the decks setting the mood with some old school rnb, afrobeats and keep you whining your waist to some dancehall tunes.
Why: Not to be confused with the ‘All White Party Boat’ – which is how the Liberal Party is celebrating their Easter break.
7) I Remember House
What: I Remember House returns to Brisbane this Easter Saturday! After a sensational party on New Year’s Day they can’t wait to join you again for a Saturday night extravaganza at The Warehouse. DJs Dan Murphy & Harry K have joined forces again to give you the best house music on the planet. Dan Murphy & Jonny Marsh have rebooked their flights from Sydney and will be joining Harry K on the decks no matter what this time! Let’s all come together and celebrate our love of vocal funky house music – classics and current!
Why: Thought borders reopening would just mean you get to see your loved ones? No. You also get to see an influx of dudes named ‘Jonny Marsh’.
6) Pandamic + Verum + Radicals + We All Drive: Live
What: 4 sick bands, one sick venue, and plenty of beers. Come down and get around it. The best of skater punk, indie and alt-rock.
Why: They’ve really got the post-COVID marketing figured out.
5) Alivan Blu: The Fall
What: Alivan Blu is Australian Indie-folk duo Jed Billington and Anna Stanton from the Far North Coast of NSW, Australia. They first began their journey together as a couple, travelling and surfing up and down the East Coast of Australia along with many other countries around the world. They began writing songs in remote areas of Indonesia, India and the United Kingdom. Returning back to Australia and drawing from their experiences of travel and growing up with the ocean at their front door, they combine two acoustic guitars, blended with their complementary voices and warm harmonies to elicit a desire for warm summer nights by the ocean or an adventure into the wilderness.
Why: When we first saw their name we thought it read ‘avian flu’. We’re not going to lie, we are disappointed.
4) Flag Duty: Live
What: Following the release of their new single Twenty, Flag Duty take to the Black Bear Lodge stage for their first headline show of what is set to be a massive 2021. Drawing on an eclectic mix of modern and nostalgic rock influences, the band explores a colourful pop- and alt-rock sound, blending the musical hooks of indie rock with catchy pop melodies.
Why: Evidently, the ‘everyman’ of music.
3) A Night with Liquid Lollipop
What: Come and join Liquid Lollipop and their friends Friday Marmalade and Tessa Fleur for a night of tunes and grooves. Liquid Lollipop are a Brisbane-based 4 piece band. Together since March 2019, the band are self-described as the “happiest emo band out”, and want to share sugary, bubblegum-grunge vibes through their music.
Why: If only the sensorial unpleasantness of the description was the worst thing about this.
2) The Lazy Eyes: Live
What: The Lazy Eyes’ carefully crafted songs, blended with their unique brand of psychedelic rock, is what makes them such a formidable live outfit, and is why they have already graced the stages of Laneway Festival, Farmer & The Owl, and many more in the early stages of their career. Experience them live.
Why: ‘Lazy eyes’ can also be another way of saying ‘high as f***’. Just a piece of pre-concert advice.
1) Rabbits Eat Lettuce
What: Rabbits Eat Lettuce is a place of Freedom, Love & Dance Music. Camp in a beautiful natural environment and form a community of like-minded souls who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life. Rabbits Eat Lettuce lets us be human again. We can dissolve the social barriers and dance together. Rabbits Eat Lettuce began in 2008 as a Tribal Easter party on the mid-north-coast of NSW and has become an underground tradition in the area. The event takes place over 4 days and has a number of stages showcasing a variety of dance music. Everything from deep and serious to fresh and funky. At night the ‘chill zone’ will transform into a psychedelic slumber party with movies, chill music, acoustic artists, beanbags & chai tea. There will be a wide variety of delicious & nutritious food and beverages sold in the vibrant market village.
Why: Remember: A life without gonorrhoea is a life only half-lived.
