They’re fresh, they’re free and they’re moving in.
Thank God it’s Friday. Kick off the end of the week with the cool sounds of our monthly live music residents.
Fridays are about to get a lot more interesting as some of the best Indie-Pop/Alt Country bands around stake their claim on the Turbine Platform. No ‘one night only’ gigs here. Each band will have an entire month to capture the hearts of Brisbane music lovers with a set every week.
November Resident: Women in Docs
November residents are the lively and humorous folk pop duo Women in Docs. Their US album release of Under A Different Sky featured in the Top 40 of the US Folk and Roots Charts, reaching a respectible number 15. Their latest album is the highly acclaimed Red Wine and Postcards, produced by Darren Middleton (Powderfinger). If you like The Waifs, Bluehouse, Fruit or Paul Kelly you'll love the down-to-earth humour, soaring harmonies and catchy songs of women in docs.

One of Australia's most revered and recognisable voices, Kate Miller-Heidke, is once again set to delight audiences as she performs a series of intimate duo shows with her longtime collaborator Keir Nuttall in churches and cathedrals under the Heavenly Sounds banner.
Kate's critically acclaimed album 'Nightflight', released last year, set her front and centre in the psyche of music fans and media alike. With these being her first duo performances in over a year and her debut performance in this kind of live setting, tickets are sure to be in high demand.
Kate says, "I'm very much looking forward to being a part of Heavenly Sounds. It's such a beautiful concept. I haven't sung in a church since high school, but they do tend to have very gorgeous voice-friendly acoustics. Also, I've been told I'm not allowed to swear during these concerts which might be good for me."
Kate Miller-Heidke's Heavenly Sounds tour promises to offer something quite magical. Be sure not to miss out on this unique touring experience.

Who run the world?
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another
What makes a man a man?
SONS OF SIN, The Danger Ensemble’s most provocative production to date, lays bare the hopes, dreams and expectations of young men moving through rites of passage and across a minefield of history, pressures, demands and taboos towards manhood.
Classical text collides with raw confession. A lone voice stands against a call of the pack. Killers rise, angels fall. Love and brotherhood survive.
Featuring a bold and fearless cast of twenty-something male actors and riding a tidal wave of eclectic, cataclysmic beats (played live by the UK’s Henry Collins, aka Shitmat, Planet Mu), SONS OF SIN inhabits an open, immersive space, placing the audience in the belly of the beast.
Part confessional, part music festival, a sporting match, a drinking game, a punch in the balls and a whole lot of testosterone, SONS OF SIN opens up the heart of manhood in crisis.
