There is a folk lore that anything you could every want in Fortitude Valley is just a wish away. Now this may sound like we made it up (mostly because we just made it up) but we tell you no lies when we say that the Valley holds the key to all BIGSOUND delights musical, culinary and beyond.
You’re going to need something to keep those peepers open for three days and your number one coffee destination should be Foundry Records. Just a short toddle down from Judith Wright Centre the freshly opened Foundry Records is ready to cater to all your needs from caffeine to newly pressed vinyl. Also, in case you missed it before they’re also offering free coffee to all BIGSOUND delegates.
Now, we don’t condoning drinking to excess but when the damage is done y’all gonna need something to soak up that monster hangover. Enter The Flying Cock, which is not only a bang up music venue but they are also purveyors of some of the finest comfort food Brisbane has to offer. Think bacon cheeseburgers, think Buffalo wings, think Doritos fried chicken. Yes, you read that right. Doritos fried chicken. We’ll give you a second to wipe up your drool.
Doughnuts have officially taken hold of Brisbane and we for one are happy to bow down to our fried, sugary masters. Doughnut Time over on Alfred St will tantalise you with their Nutella filled monstrosities while Donut Boyz will have you Instagram ready with their injectable creations.
If you like drinkables with your eatables then look no further than the newest bar/restaurant hybrids scattered along the Valley. LONg TIME is your go to for the best curry and beer combo out, Bao Down Now is so much more than just a delightful pun and Heya Bar is the home of the best cocktails and the Cheeseburger Spring Roll.
Just remember, Mucho Bravado takes no responsibility for any weight gained during the course of BIGSOUND 2015.
