The Triffid sees the much anticipated return of the band universally known as “QLD’s #1 once a year middle aged charity covers band” The Planktons. Riding the momentum of 3 stellar years working the large pubs of Brisbane to sell-out audiences, the lads have gained a dedicated and swelling fan base thanks largely to their nostalgic set list, sharp vocals, lock-tight rhythm section and powerful guitar sound.

Joint headlining will be QLD’s #1 Tom Petty tribute band and country/rock music powerhouses Dirty Petty and The Drinkin Posse. Fresh from their show-stealing performance (sorry TCD) at The Triffid’s – Runnin Down a Dream, Dirt and The Posse are back with a vengeance delivering more songs, more passion and more Tom!

There has never been a double-bill like this. Devotees of Aussie music will feast on The Planktons tributes to: The Sunnyboys, Rat Cat, INXS, AC/DC, Mondo Rock and The Riptides. Great artists from abroad are not ignored either with cracking renditions of hits from: The Only Ones, The Strokes, James, Green Day, Nirvana, The Cure, The Cult and even Martha and her Muffins.

Tom Petty fans looking to celebrate Tom one more time cannot afford to miss this show. Charismatic Petty doppelganger, front-man Dirt Petty, brings passion, power and pizazz prizing Tom at his peak. The Drinkin Posse meanwhile boast the polished sound and archetypal riffs that music fans of any genre will delight in.

Even more unique than the music however is the cause. All proceeds go to the support of families impacted by Brain Cancer. In its fourth year, the show is taking it to a new level by partnering with The Triffid to package a show that fans can enjoy, and feel good about contributing to, at the same time.

Promoters are still in talks with other prominent Brisbane acts to pack out the bill for the night with doors opening at 6.30 pm and closing as late as 2 am. It’s an evening chock filled with entertainment and value whilst The Triffid always provides ice cold bevvies and fine food for the famished.

This is an 18+ event.
