If you live in Brisbane, love live music and don't have a crazy story about a wild night spent at The Zoo, then you're doing it wrong. Over the years, every local band has played there at least once — and plenty of national and international acts as well. Over the past 25 years, actually.
Yes, the Ann Street mainstay is having a birthday, and it's quite the milestone occasion. They're celebrating the only way they know how, of course. Expect bands playing full sets and plenty of high-profile special guests, as more than 25 Brissie musos come together to take part in one heck of a party.
Dubbed "The Zoo 25", the lineup includes Resin Dogs, Isis, Sabrina Lawrie and Sissybones leading the bill, plus The Go-Betweens' Adele Pickvance Powderfinger's Ian Haug, Regurgitator's Ben Ely, and Screamfeeder's Tim Steward and Kellie Lloyd all popping up. Tickets cost $28.60, with the event also supporting music charities Support Act and Feed Music.
