After the work-week marathon, holing up at home all weekend can be mighty tempting. And while technology has gifted us with the amazing ability to get both food and entertainment without changing out of our PJs, it's no replacement for sunshine and socialising. So once a month, swap the hermit life for an outside hangout.

The Sound Society is an initiative that fills two of Brisbane's most beautiful parks with music.

It all kicks off at South Bank Parklands on Saturday, December 1 with acoustic duo Innocent Eve performing at 2pm and folk-pop singer Neighbour at 4.45pm. You're welcome to pack a picnic but onsite food vendor The Plough Inn will also be dishing up smoked brisket and slaw rolls. The tunes will continue to roll out quarterly so check back in here in a few months to see who will take the stage at Rainforest Green next.

If a slow Sunday morning is more your style, meander down to Roma Street Parkland between 9am and noon — picnic blanket in hand. The lineup is equally eclectic here with jazz funk group Kerbside Collection slated to perform on December 2. The tunes will continue to roll out monthly here — we'll update you on the full 2019 lineup as soon as it's announced. Food vendors will be available here, too — cheese toasties, coffee and cakes will be on offer to sort out your brunch sustenance.

Embrace the outdoors this summer. The Netflix marathon can wait for nighttime.
