Uncharted winners Avalon Drive will headline QPAC’s free Nights Outside concert this Saturday night.
The award-winning rock band who spent much of last year touring with INXS, The Veronicas and Yellowcard and performing their own national tours will take to the stage in QPAC’s Cascade Court as the lead act in a dynamic night of live music performed by some of Brisbane’s best up-and-coming rock bands.
Formed in 2005, in 2006, the band’s rise was imminent when they released the EP The City Of Burnt Out Lights which spawned two singles including radio favourite, Get Up which the band went on to perform nationally as Rove Live’s house band and guest performance on Toasted TV.
Joining Avalon Drive on the bill will be the five-piece Brisbane rock band Repeat Offender, who will perform its first all ages concert this year at QPAC. Repeat Offender has shared the stage with some of the country’s best musicians including The John Butler Trio, The Butterfly Effect, The Veronicas, My Chemical Romance and The Killers. Be sure to listen out to songs from the band’s first EP To a Modern Love.
Completing the rocking line-up will be the explosive trio Little Red Light. Incorporating a quirky, funk-rock style to its music, Little Red Light is a relative newcomer to Brisbane’s music scene, but already it is making a big impact with a growing fan base.
