Magpie Diaries play The Byron Brewery

Magpie Diaries debut Sanctuary at the Brewery

Byron Brewery | Thursday 7pm | FREE

Alluding to an era of more simplistic notions, Magpie Diaries take flight into an abundant musical sanctuary with their 11-track debut album release. To celebrate their debut, Magpie Diaries are heading out on an extensive tour, along the way crossing paths with some close friends: Steve Smyth, Masco Sound System, and Coda Chroma, to name but a few.

Sanctuary delivers Magpie’s story via smooth soul country, with subtle flourishes of psychedelic rock’n’roll attributed to great acts such as Grateful Dead, Neil Young, and Van Morrison, alongside modern artists like Cat Power and My Morning Jacket.

Sanctuary is a journey through the past and into the future, where one can still roam with wild exuberance, where the desire to perform is matched with the desire to escape and unravel inside the music.

Sanctuary is Magpie’s happy place – make it yours too! At the Byron Brewery on Thursday at 7pm.

Bertie Page at Jimmy Willing’s Garden of Eden at the Billinudgel Hotel

Beer Garden of Eden

Billinudgel Hotel | Saturday 6.30pm | $15

This summertime don’t miss The Beer Garden of Eden, a live music burlesque show starring Brisbane’s singing dancing sensation Bertie Page as a very seductive Eve. The ever-versatile Bertie will also be cast as Eugene Delecroix’s Liberty, Batman, and Catwoman. Bertie will be joined onstage by The Buffalo Gals, a chorus line of can-can dancers that she created just for the music of Jimmy Willing & The Real Gone Hick-Ups. The Buffalo Gals dance the can-can, old time, rock’n’roll, and bump and grind. The show is colourful, artistic, and sexy but most of all it’s lots of fun.

Tix at the door.
