Established in Perth, Western Australia in 2010, Tired Lion channels the essence of ’90 salt-rock through guitar-driven, gutsy blasts of indie rock. Lead by songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Sophie Hopes, the band centres on Hopes’ fearless wail and no-holds-barred, heart-on-her-sleeve, trademark lyricism. Tired Lion debuted with the 2013 EP ‘All We Didn’t Know’ and rose to prominence with 2015’s Figurine EP, which featured the breakout single I Don’t Think You Like Me.

In 2015, Tired Lion took out the triple j Unearthed Artist of the Year Award and West Australian Music Industry Awards for Best Rock Act (2015, 2016) and Best EP(2015). Over the next few years, Tired Lion toured extensively both in Australia and abroad, including performances at premier festivals includingSplendour in the Grass, Glastonbury, Home bake, Groovin’ the Moo, Falls Festival, Southbound,Reading and Leeds and Primavera Sound. In September 2017, Tired Lion released their debut album-the critically acclaimed, triple j feature album Dumb Days-produced by Luke Boerdam of Violent Soho. In November 2018, following countless live shows, Tired Lion dropped the standalone single, With Or Without.

With Or Without quickly distinguished itself as one of the best singles of the band’s career; laden with hooks and addictively crunchy guitar lines, with Boerdam adding sweeping, atmospheric production. Tired Lion have evolved into one of the most formidable and ferocious rock acts in the country, touring relentlessly and bringing their special brand of controlled chaos to anyone and everyone willing to listen. Between live shows, Hopes continues to write material for Tired Lion’s anticipated sophomore album.

With the first round of tickets selling out within minutes we’re super excited to be able to add extra tickets and event dates to artists already scheduled and add even more artists to the stellar line-up!

New Artists include:
Sophie Hopes (Tired Lion), Liam Brimble & Jack Carty
With extra shows added for:
Bernard Fanning, Sweater Curse & Jeff Martin
Kicking off on July 10th, Cabin Fever will feature local artists performing at a variety of free and ticketed events. Artists will include Bernard Fanning, Dami Im, Troy Cassar-Daley, Jeff Martin (The Tea Party), Hatchie, Sweater Curse, Lagerstein & Shag Rock amongst many others.

In a series of cabaret seated events, The Triffid will celebrate the rebirth of our states live music scene in a month-long program in the leafy Triffid garden. To compliment the amazing talent showcased; production and staging are being heavily upgraded to ensure the experience far outweighs a live stream.

What the last three months has proved, is that nothing comes close to seeing an artist live, in the flesh, performing in an intimate setting. With the calibre of artists being programmed, these performances are one off and potentially some of the most memorable shows you will ever see at The Triffid.

2020 has seen all manner of hardship come our way, which has greatly affected the Brisbane music community at large during these unprecedented and crazy times. To their credit; tens of thousands rallied around to contribute to Fire Benefits, positive social rallies and to continue the ethos that music and arts in Queensland are a collaborative initiative.

The Triffid will be abiding by all current Covid regulations whilst striving to provide the best event experience you’ve come to expect from QMAs Metro venue of the year.
