The Lost Weekend Festival – Change of Venue

dinosourjr   Having seen a need for a camping and music festival easily accessible to the music fans of Brisbane, the team behind Sounds Of Spring planned The Lost Weekend which was to be involve three days of camping and music situated less than an hour from Brisbane’s CBD.

Unfortunately issues beyond the promoter’s control have made running the event in the way that they envisaged impossible, and have forced the inaugural The Lost Weekend to be moved to the picturesque Brisbane Riverstage and Botanical Gardens.

The festival will no longer be a camping event and will now be held on Saturday March 6 and Sunday March 7, with the same diverse and exciting selection of international, interstate and local acts performing over three stages between 10am and 10pm on both days, still making it the perfect end to the festival season.

DEBUT ALBUM ‘TANGALOOMA’ TO FOLLOW EARLY 2010

The collision of art-rock, classic pop and indie has never sounded as lush as it does on ‘Masochist’, the first single lifted from Brisbane six piece band The John Steel Singers‘ forthcoming debut album.

Recorded under the guidance of producer, mentor and fellow Queenslander Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens, new single ‘Masochist’ sees The John Steel Singers blend rich vocal harmonies and horns to create a woozy, psychedelic soundtrack for the lyrics of writer Scott Bromiley. ‘Masochist’ has The John Steel Singers apply what is becoming their trademarked psychedelic, observation of a disfunctional relationship; the story here of a man who can’t apply himself to love. The band keep things upbeat though, moving between Beatles’eque horn arrangements and orchestral pomp. It’s a fluid, appealing sound.
