It’s been a HUGE year for Brisbane’s newest live music venue and to celebrate, they’re throwing a massive party. And everyone’s invited.
In true nostalgic style, Velociraptor will shake the floor (but not break it!), leading a lineup that’s as kick-ass as it is diverse. Check out this stacked goodie bag: chilltronica courtesy of Golden Vessel, shout-along indie rock from The Jensens, Astro Travellers are bringing the jazz-infused future-hop, raucous punk/grunge via Straight Arrows, and Whalehouse‘s indescribable frenetic punk stylings. Even though it’s The Foundry’s birthday, punters are the ones who’ll be reaping all the rewards – and some special surprises as well.
Also celebrating it’s first birthday is Foundry Studios upstairs from the venue. The Studios have developed into a bustling creative hub for Brisbane’s vibrant music industry, housing labels, community radio, festivals, bands and even a rock’n’roll accountant.
In its first year, The Foundry has cemented its status as being unlike anywhere else in the country. Over this short twelve months, it’s seen sold out shows from the likes of Floating Points, Last Dinosaurs, Montaigne, The Belligerents and Airling; as well as the now-legendary Tame Impala and Laneway afterparties, and hosting bands during The Blurst of Times and The Mountain Goat Valley Crawl. The Foundry’s point of difference is simple. It marries great gigs, creative events, industry offices, artist accommodation and more with a fierce passion for music in the local, national & international sphere. If that’s not worth celebrating, what is?!
The Foundry celebrates its first birthday on August 18. Be there or be at home wishing you were there.
