Fabulous Diamonds - in my opinion one of Australia's most promising bands - are playing two shows in Brisbane this weekend. Friday night you can find them at Burst City in Southbank, alongside my Brisbane favorites and old comrades, Slug Guts, aswell as Feathers, Blank Realm and Deadnotes. The show is all ages, BYO and cheap so there is no reason not to be there!
Saturday marks the opening of the Brisbane Festival and the annual Frankly! Its A Pop Festival at the Powerhouse. Headlining is the inimitable Xiu Xiu, and the lineup includes Fabulous Diamonds, Surf City, Guy Blackman, High Places and Crayon Fields.
There hasn't been a musically promising weekend like this in Brisbane for eons!
