Who was with me at Fish Lane on Saturday 11th May?
What seemed like the entirety of Brisbane turned out to soak up the atmosphere of the infamous Fish Lane Festival. Now in its fourth year, this year’s festival was bigger and better than ever before.
I got to speak to the lovely Grace Cuell while she was traipsing through Fortitude Valley, a couple of days after she and her band had hit the stage for BIGSOUND 2018. We talked about Nice Biscuit’s latest shows, their new record, which comes out this Friday the 14th September, and their incredible, quirky DIY costumes.

While his name might not be as familiar to us Aussies who aren’t die-hard ska fanatics, Dan Potthast is a talented muso who’s been keepin’ it real in the USA since the nineties. He’s a beloved cult figure, a veteran performer, and an all around top bloke. We sat down with him for a chat about his upcoming tour Down Under.
Brissy musician Samuel Geddes is no stranger to the Brisbane arts scene. He’s well known around the neighbourhood haunts as the powerhouse vocalist of local outfit Screwjacks, but 2018 has seen the birth of his new solo project, Sammm. The promise from the singer/songwriter is to “navigate listeners through his experiences of heartbreak, addiction and growing up, with raw and enticing guitar-driven tunes”. We caught up with him to talk about the launch of his new EP, Mandarin Season.
Slowly Slowly have built a dedicated following in their home town of Melbourne, but last Friday night it was their Brisbane show that went off with a bang. “This is like a home show” declared frontman Ben Stewart. “Thank you so much everyone for coming out, this is crazy”.
The Creative Issue recently had a chat to Brisbaneâ€™s very own Hannah Macklin (MKO Sun) about the Queensland Music Festival and her new band Bastard Amber.
Growing up with hip hop running through her veins, it is no surprise thatÂ Blaq Carrie (BC), Brisbaneâ€™s own emerging rap artist, would be absolutely killing it in the music industry. This week BC discussed her new release ‘Lemme Ride’ with TCI.

As creatives, our work is an expression of ourselves; our thoughts and feelings become a part of a picture, a design, a song or dance. There is something extraordinary about Brisbaneâ€™s creatives, and nothing showcases these artistic individuals better than RAW.
On September the 4th, the first BrisVegan Fest will give us all a chance to celebrate, learn and practice the way to a more ethical and cruelty-free lifestyle.
