Banshees Bar & Artspace, 131 Brisbane Street Ipswich

THE MANGROVES are proud to play Ipswich on the second stop of their World Tour. Traversing all across South-East Queensland, these Brisbane indie-rockers are taking the sound of 80s nostalgia and their obsession with Queensland to new frontiers. The foundations of Ipswich will shake with the sound of this indie-rock and indie-pop quartet, with songs described as ‘perfect for your Dad,’ and ‘why are they trying to sound like the Hoodoo Gurus?’ Don’t miss their first ever show in Ipswich.’

RUSTY PICKUPS are Bernard Borserio, Michael Cook and Lee Fielding – the three remaining members of a poorly thought out 10 piece honky tonk band in Toowoomba, Queensland. With individual musical backgrounds ranging from jazz ensembles to indie pop to 90’s grunge, the band’s sound evolved around Bernard’s classical piano and Lee’s clawhammer banjo, with Michael filling in the gaps with simple acoustics and lyrics about love, questionable life choices and dealing with getting old and rampaging children.
