Here in Brisbane we are lucky to have fairly easy access to great bands at amazing festivals, such as Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Woodford Folk Festival – and Jungle Love is no exception.

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.
We spoke to Jess Cerro AKA Montaigne about her tour, debut album, Unearthed High and diversity in the music industry.

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.
The Queensland Poetry will be returning for its 20th year packed full of film, performance, panels, music, comedy and of course poetry.
Channeling some emotionalÂ energyÂ is as simple as combining an openÂ space, a good sound system,Â andÂ Melbourne thrash metal band, High Tension. Jamming as a band since 2012, High Tension have confidently produced their own unique (and completely badass) sound with vocalist, Karina Utomo at the helm.
If you’re into Two Door Cinema Club or The Wombats, then meet Sunshine Coast’s Selahphonic. The Creative IssueÂ caught up with 2/5 of the band for a rapid fire Q&A before their gig at The Foundry.
