If you don’t have a beard or at least love beards then this evening you might just be in the wrong place. This evening is all about beard appreciation in all its forms. There are beard songs naturally, beard jokes, beard admiration and of course copious amounts of beard stroking with one hell of a display of masculinity.

Review : Meatstock Festival at Sydney Showgrounds – February 13-14, 2016

Review by Natasha Wyborn
Meatstock Festival at Sydney Showgrounds
Hair, heat and hunger were the flavour of the weekend at the inaugural Meatstock held at Sydney showgrounds on the 13th and 14th of February 2016. Capitalising on the increasing worldwide trend of BBQ’s and the art of grilling, Meatfest incorporated all the best that a carnivore could want, BBQ’s, beards, butchers, barbers, beers and bands. Too put it simple what more could a fella want for his Valentine’s weekend?

Live Review: Kate Miller-Heidke @ The Hi-Fi, Brisbane with The Beards – 26 August 2012

Review by Lauren Sherritt
There is little more satisfying on a Sunday evening than experiencing some really top-notch live music, and the show put on by Kate Miller-Heidke and The Beards at Brisbane’s Hi-Fi last night did more than fill this need. Theatrical, funny, poignant and breathtaking, the two acts complemented each other perfectly to create an evening of bar-raising, quality music memories.

The Beards, who relatively shot (they are on their third studio album and already held a significant cult following) to fame late last year with song You Should Consider Having Sex with a Bearded Man, took to the stage first and blew the audience away. While at first appearance they might almost come off as a parody band, The Beards should not fool anyone with their all-about-the-beard appearance; these guys are seriously talented musicians.
