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, March 2 with singer-songwriter Graham Moes performing at 4pm, followed by folk-rock band Boatkeeper at 5.15pm and Cheap Fakes at 7.15pm. 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 local Brisbane four-piece Pending? slated to perform on March 3. The free music is a monthly occurrence here. Yas Queen will take the stage on Sunday, April 7, followed by Kayleigh Pincott Quintet on May 5 and The Brookes St Grind on June 2. Plus, food truck Juice Power will have your brunch sustenance sorted with fresh juices, smoothies, salads and more.
Embrace the outdoors this summer. The Netflix marathon can wait for nighttime.
