Top 10 things On in Brisbane this week 15/07/2018
Give the finger to your soul and mind, Brisbane. This week is all about your guts, your butts and your burning subdermal flesh.
10) Carbs with the Kings of Rock n Roll
Ahh, Elvis, the king of rock and idol to thousands. Well, what are you waiting for? Live out your fantasies with a night as pleasing to your ears as it will be to the big and tall pant shop you’ll soon be frequenting.
9) A Very Vegan Christmas in July
Frankly, we see no reason why you wouldn’t want to go to this one. Reconstituted soy balls, anyone?
8) Sacred Space LIVE
Immerse yourself in pure sound. And no, this won’t be like the time you went to that concert, got stuck next to the speaker and spent the next 90 mins trying to hear dubstep through your own blood-drenched ear drums.
7) An Evening with Michael Leunig
Meet the man who gave your pre-pubescent lizard brain false confidence in your meagre artistic abilities.
6) A Tea Flight Experience
Activate your senses; activate your colon. The most elegant quasi-enema you will ever experience.
5) An Intimate Dinner with Truffles and Livon
We all need a little class now and then. So slip into your elegant evening gown and hork down a crap ton of fungus and old grapes.
4) David Griggs – Exhibition Opening
Get down on the floor. That’s where he’ll be. Undermining everything you assumed about the nature of the human condition in relation to culturally oppressed communities.
3) No Lights No Lycra
Exactly what it says, kids. 90 mins, lights off, go wild. The event holders take no responsibility for any drones that may be present.
2) Out of Time – Shark Edition
You know what they say about the underground. It’s full of…sharks? Metaphorical sharks. With their…sharp teeth and…okay. We give up. Not even Coleridge could save this metaphor. Look, electronic underground music. All night. That’s the gist.
1) Australian Tattoo Expo – Brisbane
Grease those limbs and sharpen those instruments, kids. This isn’t your mother’s needlepoint club. Though you may spot a few people around that are certainly big fans of her.
