25 years after opening its doors, The Zoo's love of the Brisbane music scene is still going strong. A quick glance at the venue's lineup usually makes that case quite nicely — however, a fresh addition is helping to shout it from the stage: a brand new Live 'n' Local series.
Kicking off on August 24, the gig showcase will shake up your Thursday nights with a healthy dose of homegrown talent. Buck Dean And The Green Lips, VIIRGO, Roadhouse and TenThousandTaipans will be doing the inaugural honours — after that it's a watch-this-space kind of deal. Or, take a chance, don't check the bill and just show up for a night filled with sonic surprises.
As well as gifting audiences an array of ace Brissie musos doing their thing, Live 'n' Local also proves a present for your wallet. The night will only set you back $10, making it both cheap and jam-packed with ace local bands.
