Here in Brisbane, we bloody love a music convention. Sure Big Sound has got the serious razzle dazzle, but a cursory glance over the line up for this weekend’s Unconvention reveals a wide range of quality local and interstate talent keen to spread their knowledge around like so much delightful and informative herpes. Speakers include WhoTheHell co-founder/Triple J champ Dom Alessio, iconic music journalist Clinton Walker and Dogs In Space director Richard Lowenstein. Joining them are hard working Brisbane industry folk like Jesse Barbera (who runs The Alhambra Longue), musician and recording sage Cam Smith and Go Betweens bassist John Willsteed . Also worth getting psyched for: performances from Kelly Loyd, James X. Boyd (who we’ve featured previously as part of The Majors and Running Gun Sound) and Mexico City. So if you’re in the Brisbane area (or can get there by Saturday) and wanna be inspired and practice your ‘networking’, head down to The Edge in South Bank (next to the State Library) on Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th of November.
Tickets are available from oztix and at the door.
