Black Bear Lodge Turns Ten: Weekender
This Fortitude Valley favourite is throwing a big two-day birthday bash.
Break out the cake, candles, streamers, party hats and lolly bags, because someone's having a birthday. Well, not just someone, but somewhere. And not just anywhere, but one of Fortitude Valley's favourite hangouts. Yes, that slice of music heaven on Brunswick Street that is Black Bear Lodge has now been part of the inner city scene for ten years. If that's not cause for celebration across Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5, then we don't know what is.
Trust the BBL crew to throw its own shindig (and cry if it wants to) to mark the occasion. And trust it to rope in a whole lot of other folks to make the two evenings something extra special, too.
From the DJ lineup, A Love Supreme's Ben Chiu, The QUIVR's Hol Hibbo, Liliana Michell and Luke Brazier will all hit the decks on Friday, while Saturday will see Jimmy Ellis, Ethan Greaves, Emily Leach, Grace Green and Todd O'Rourke do their thing. They'll all be joined by a heap of bands across the two evenings — with the party running from 6pm–3am on Friday and 6pm–dawn on Saturday.
Tickets for each night costs $20 on the door.
