April is music month at Urban List and we’ve got all of your music needs covered with this ultimate Brisbane gig guide.

Friday April 5
Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird | Woolly Mammoth
Touring around the tracks from their sophomore LP ‘New Romancer’, Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird is stopping by the Mammoth this April and if you have even a passing interest in indie-pop you ought to catch it. Tickets on sale now.
Saturday April 6
Cub Sport | The Tivoli
The late show is booked solid but Cub Sport are all about giving the people what they want so they’ve scheduled a 2pm all ages show and tickets are still available. The Brisbane-based four-piece are currently touring with the first body of work produced since the marriage of their members Tim Nelson and Sam Netterfield, which explores themes of self-love and self-actualisation. Tickets available here.
Thursday April 11
Billie Eilish Appreciation Night | Black Bear Lodge
Eilish herself might be playing to already sold out shows, but just because you missed out on a ticket doesn’t mean you should miss out on the sultry elvin jams. Black Bear’s got your back, with a night to appreciate the woman herself. Get all the details here.
Friday April 12
Odette | The Triffid
Well into her Lotus Eaters National Tour, Odette is bringing the richness and potency of her music and spoken word to the Triffid. Her debut album ‘To A Stranger’ earned her a spot at number 13 on the national ARIA chart, as well as two ARIA nominations. Get tickets here.
The Jezabels | Southbeach Social
Corona Sunsets presents a completely free national tour of one of Australia’s premier indie-pop groups. Formed in Sydney in 2007, the Jezabels have released three studio albums, toured with Imagine Dragons and Garbage, and are regulars on the festival circuit. RSVP at the events page.
Sunday April 21
Touch Sensitive | The Triffid
Escape the family on Easter Sunday and get Touch Sensitive in your earholes. As a self-proclaimed synth-freak, his electronica dance music means the Sydneysider has minted some serious bops. His Endless Weekend tour aims to banish Sunday scaries and drive all thoughts of the work week far from your mind. Tickets available here.
Wednesday April 24
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever | The Triffid
Formed in Melbourne in 2013, Rolling Blackouts CF have enjoyed widespread acclaim for their indie rock sound, and have often been associated with their dolewave scene. Riding high on the success of their debut album ‘Hope Downs’, they have embarked on a national tour to spread the word of their brand new music. Get tickets here.
Friday April 26
Genesis Owusu | The Foundry
On the verge of serious exposure, Genesis Owusu is a name to remember while he’s still relatively low key. Hailing from Canberra, Owusu describes his sound as 21st century punk jazz, with a backbone of hip-hop. Purchase tickets here so you can say you saw him before he took over the music world.
Saturday April 27
Montaigne | The Brightside
Bringing her For Your Love Tour to Brisbane, Montaigne is breezing in to the Brightside for one night only. Get tickets here, and for every one purchased $1 will go to Minus8, a national organisation established to support LGBTIQ youth.
Approachable Members Of Your Local Community | Milk Factory
Preaching team spirit, pop melodies, and a decent slap of the colour pink, Approachable Members of Your Local Community provide the fun, mellow-go-lucky vibes that always beget a good night. Get tickets to their Brisbane show here and join the community.
