Top 10 things On in Brisbane this week 10/03/2019
Howdy partner. We reckon you might just want to high-tail it to some place over yonder. The Country Music Festival’s coming and you’ll need to be as far away as possible because the sound of yodelling really carries.
10) March Seven Course Degustation
What: Each month, Grown hosts a seven course degustation to showcase the amazing produce from around Brisbane. Head chef, Nathan Kirk, takes pride in creating unique dishes that are sure to please!
Why: We now fully understand the phrase ‘eat with your eyes’. It’s better than trying to actually gastrically digest a load of vegan food.
9) Loud Art: After Hours ‘Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power’
What: Start your weekend right at Loud Art: After Hours. Visit UQ Art Museum’s exhibition ‘Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power’ for an evening of art, music, food, drinks, and alchemy, with DJ Dameeeela, the UQ Science Demo Troupe and more.
Why: Art, music, food, drinks. We can’t think of a more apt way to describe the university experience except by shoehorning in the word ‘underwhelming’ four times.
8) Beer and Food Truck Car Park Party
What: Riverland is getting together with 4 Pines, Brookvale Union, Pirate Life & Goose Island to create an event showcasing some of the finest brews & food that can be served all in a car park on the Brisbane River.
Why: Because there’s no better place for an elegant gourmet degustation than a…carpark.
7) Brunch of Flowers
What: Wildflower has become synonymous with being solely focused on creating wild ales using a house culture of microbes cultivated over the years by collected flowers, bark and other flora. Topher’s subtle artistry of mixed culture fermenting, barrel-aging & blending is the reason why Wildflower is creating waves in the Australian beer scene. For this beery brunch, Topher has handpicked 7 of his creations across various styles, flavours, stories, methods & ingredients to help give an insight to the story of Wildflower.
Why: The word flower can now be used in conjunction with beer. And not just in the context of describing the tumour that’s flowering upon your liver due to a lifetime of chronic over-consumption of beer.
6) Brewsvegas Beergustation Long Lunch
What: The Beergustation Long Lunch will match Aether’s core and special release beers with a delicious degustation of local, seasonal produce selected by chefs to create a mouthwatering dining experience. Surprise and delight your tastebuds with a long lunch not soon forgotten.
Why: It’s hard to forget something when it’s streaming out of your mouth at 2am, somehow still containing several intact pieces of still redundant coriander.
5) Big Gay Day After Party
What: Fluffy is proud to present the after party that follows Brisbane’s biggest Gay Street Party everyone looks forward to each year Big Gay Day.
Why: An all-inclusive event of love, free expression and DJ beats to remind you why you chose a quiet life steeped in self-hatred and devoid of club music.
4) Rabbits Eat Lettuce
What: A day of bass, booty shaking while sun baking. Glorious tech, house, glitch hop and funk massage the mind while the scrumptious Void sound system caresses the ears. The visual magic of Melt will smother the party grounds, while interstate and local heroes deliver aural delights.
Why: Yes. You read right. Glitch hop. Because apparently they needed a whole other genre to describe mashing a bunch of random genres together and spewing it through a synth.
3) Brisbane Comedy Festival
What: Australia’s fastest growing comedy festival, Brisbane Comedy Festival, has grown into a multi-venue extravaganza, bursting at the seams to host a hand-picked selection of the funniest folk in the country.
Why: Laugh with something other than bitterness.
2) Eagles World Tour
What: On this tour, the Eagles – Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey – will be accompanied on stage by an incredible live band that includes a full horn section and full string section. As the Eagles’ appeal continues to transcend both generation and genre, don’t miss the opportunity to witness Eagles’ unmistakable West Coast harmonies and unparalleled song writing talent come alive as they return to Australia!
Why: Remember that time you thought you’d accidentally suffocated that bird and the reality of death crashed down upon you…and then the bird suddenly flapped it’s wings and limped away to live a seemingly endless existence? Like that but the bird is a 60s soft rock band.
1) CMC Rocks
What: The most anticipated event on the country music calendar delivering the hottest country artists from Australia and around the world to country music lovers!
Why: Barbecue ribs, cowboy hats and somehow increasingly prevalent racism and sexism in music festival form.
