Brisbane is a city of variety, but lets face it variety doesn't mean you’re guaranteed to find a gem. I trek through the dredges of Brisbane nightlife to bring the best bits to you. Exploring the producers, artists, owners and musicians who exist within the creative collective that is Brisbane city. I love all that is bright loud and smart, but seriously anything from the lyrics of Courtney Barnett to the illustrations of Shaun Tan, I’m your girl. Focusing on music, visual art and local nightlife are my particular passions, so you will never be without an excuse to head out on a Friday night. If you’re creating something wonderful please give me a shout!
