Pre Sale Tickets - $20/$22



Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, The Francis Wolves deliver a sound that Triple J’s Dom Alessio refers to as ‘the soundtrack to big wave surfing…in hell’. An instrumental funk juggernaut that brings together a melting pot of genres. It’s a fuzzed out wall-of-sound with ferocious horns and a brooding rhythm section. There’s ominous organ and infectious congas. It’s a hot mess. A funky hot mess.

Their most recent second album, recorded in Brisbane and mastered in Hamburg, Germany by Fabian Tormin (Biffy Clyro, The Kills, Kurt Vile, Lee Ranaldo) delves deeper into more dark and ominous territory than their debut managed. It’s a more mature offering from the Francis Wolves pulling no punches musically.

Among the 10 tracks, they pay homage to one of the greatest composers of all time, Ennio Morricone – who passed away during the recording of the album – in “The Ballad of Lee Van Cleef”. It’s a cinematic underscore for today’s spaghetti western complete with timpani drums, theremin and an unhinged guitar solo.

The shades on this record are deeper and darker. From the brooding, Fender Rhodes driven “199 to Brunswick” to the MC5 influenced “Brother Wayne Kramer” the record tells a story of hardship, grit and determination…and it does so, without any words. So get on board and get yourself to the dancefloor. You won’t regret it.

It's The Francis Wolves


Khito (pronounced “key-tow”) are an Australian jazz septet formed in 2022 in Brisbane Australia. The bands lineup consists of Alex Askew (Bass Guitar), Mick Solo (Trumpet), Edan Falcongreen (Drums), Liv Marlton (Alto Sax), Tyger Middleton (Tenor Sax), Evan J Evans (Vibraphone) and Teabo Fargo (Piano).

The band all met during their studies at the Jazz Music Institute in Brisbane, which started as an informal funk jam after hours at university. However the band quickly started to produce original songs from simple riffs and ideas that various members of the band would compose during the week. The band’s first EP self titled EP “Khito” was recorded during live takes at the Jazz Music Institute in June 2022. It was mixed by Oscar Borschmann and mastered by Alexander Le’strange.

While under the umbrella of jazz, Khito is influenced by a variety of artists such as Badbadnotgood, Yussef Dayes,Tigran Hamasayan, Meshuggah, Fleet Foxes, Pink Floyd, Grizzly Bear and Thelonius Monk. Using these influences Khito maneuvers around jazz using hip hop back beats, funk inspired bass lines, bebop and soul inspired melodies through prog inspired arrangements.


One of the youngest bands on the scene right now The Vanderbyl Quartet deliver a fresh brand of neo jazz direct from the western suburbs of Brisbane. With all 4 members still teenagers it's mind blowing just how good they are. Brad Mehldau, Bad Bad Not Good and even Steve Reich are just some of the influences permeating into TVQs music.
