“Why Thank You,” is an expression of gratitude usually heard after receiving an amazing gift, and oh boy; Bedlam Records, and Grainzine (the crew behind the wildly successful Against the Grain festival) have a gift for Brisbane!
Kicking off Friday April 7, six local legends descend on The Foundry for the inaugural ‘Why Thank You’ event. A time to give the ‘middle finger to the man,’ and cut loose for a great night of discovering new live music.
‘Why Thank You’ aims to provide discerning Brisbane music lovers the most eclectic, grooviest, and newest live music acts every month. With three parts to the night, the first is the live music segment, boasting a dynamic line up catering to all music lovers. Post-headliner signifies the beginning of ‘Up Late’ where the live music will continue from midnight to around one o’clock, but with a more of a musing mood. After midnight is a highly prized DJ set with killer tunes to cut shapes to, and warmly welcome in the new day.
Headlining the first ever 'Why Thank You' is Brisbane's Boss Moxi, veterans of the local music scene, playing their distinctly garage-rock vibes at the city’s music venues, dingy alleys and warehouses. Backing up the Brissy boys, are local favs Squidgenini, Melbourne's Romeo Moon and Rohan & The Intern. Kicking on for the ‘Up Late’ set is Gallus with his grimy hip-hop vibes. And to finish, a DJ set from Pocket Moth will play out till the early morning.
The logo is a smiling moon for Pete's sake. If that's not enough to make you come celebrate and discover new music who even are you? Oh, make sure to bring an open mind and some dancing shoes, and say ‘Why Thank You’ to your new favourite monthly music masterpiece.
