Banshees Bar & Artspace, 131 Brisbane Street Ipswich

The Hinterlanders just don’t fit in the usual genre descriptions. It’s like a folk-punk country-blues pre-rock song bonanza. When they last played at Banshees Bar the air was electric and the musical notes floated like bumblebees over a hayfield.

The New Middle Class are currently recording their 3rd album. Tentatively titled ‘I Press Rewind’ it is an exploration of memory and nostalgia. Currently, the band consists of Tom (g,v), Elise (v) and David (cello and vocals). The album is shaping up to be the chamber/folk classic they have been threatening to make since they first formed.

Camping is an alt-country band from Meanjin featuring Nathan Kearney, Tom Fennah, Skye McNicol, James E. Walker, Julia R. Anderson and Chris Brownbill.
