Return To White Chairs Vol 2 Feat. RAZAR
Show starts 1pm
Return To White Chairs Vol 2 is the second instalment in reunion gigs that reunite a punk and counterculture music loving crowd that met and drank at the infamous Elizabeth St bar in Brisbane City between ’77-87.
Polarised by politics and conservatism at this time, Brisbane birthed of some of the world’s most influential punk, post punk and counterculture bands, and Return to White Chairs Vol 2 celebrates this time, the music and the many people that loved and played in the scene.
Return to White Chairs Vol 2 is proud to feature the era’s earliest punk legends RAZAR, reforming again after a notorious show 29 years prior at a Brisbane speakeasy. Second to RAZAR on the throne are Ipswich darlings The Toy Watches, all 40 plus years honed at their craft and still just as energising as they were then.
A massive support line-up includes other recognised names from back in the day including The Horny Toads, Scrap Metal, Public Execution, The 5 Hanks, Vacant Rooms and The Chrysalids playing genres across Punk, New Wave, Rockabilly and Power Indie Pop and Rock. More recent combinations of players from the era are found in Dr Bombay, Dangerous Folk, The Bollocks, and Cultured Few who represent indie rock, punk and Celtic punk rock. This is a huge day and night of talent, nostalgia and fun!
Also featuring a VISUAL FEAST of 1000's of photos and posters from this
era, this is a not to be missed and once in a lifetime reunion with this
lineup. We thanks The Triffid, Axelle Dee, Punkfest and The State Library of Queensland's research fellow John Willstead for contributing so generously to this fundraiser and all those unsung and singing heroes and punters that will support the ultra poor of the projects of Growing Nepal Foundation through this event.
