Brrr—there’s a definite chill in the air, Brisbane! With temps dropping and sales of flannelette pj’s soaring, you’d think we’d all be in the early stages of hibernation.
This week in Brisbane we’ve got live gigs, movie screenings and comedy straight from NYC. Winter won’t stop us, so here are all the kick-ass events happening in town this week.
Tuesday 6th June
Live Jazz Night At Lock ’n’ Load
Combining their BYO Tuesdays with stellar live jazz music, you’d be a fool not to stop off for a post-work pint and a bite at Lock ‘n’ Load. Kick back with your pals, order the chefs sharing platter—at $15 a pop this is a must—and get seriously mellow with some of the best jazz musicians in town. For all the deets, click here.

Wednesdays are the new Thursdays at Greaser didn’t you know, with Young Henrys LIVE raising the roof mid-week.

Before the billion-dollar franchise, there was once this one guy Steve Rogers (aka Captain America), doing it tough during WWII. He literally was the first Avenger.
