A once-a-month showcase of up-and-coming Brisbane bands.
March 13, 2019
When it comes to cranking out ace bands, Brisbane has been doing locals proud for decades, thanks to everyone from The Saints, The Go-Betweens, Powderfinger and Regurgitator to The Grates, DZ Deathrays, Dune Rats and Violent Soho. But before all of the above groups hit it big, they each had to get their start somewhere — in a Fortitude Valley bar, probably.
Somewhere across Brissie, the city's next must-listen band is desperately trying to follow in their footsteps — and they just might get a chance at The Brighside's new showcase of local talent. Once a month, Valley Sounds will round up a heap of up-and-comers for your listening pleasure. One day, you might be able to say you saw the Brisbane's latest big music export before they were pumping tunes out of radios everywhere.
The regular series gets started on Thursday, March 14, returning again on April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11 and August 8. Entry costs $5 on the door, with gigs kicking off from 8pm.
