After a brief hiatus the Sunday Rocknroll BBQ is back and its on monthly at its wonderful new home in West End at the Motor Room.its on December 14 and Its all kicks off at the usual time with bands starting at 2pm. Its free like its always been.
The Motor Room is a awesome 400 capacity room with a massive smoking deck wrapping the side of this old industrial building. Its located on the corner of Boundary Street and Mollison Street West End. Its just a short walk from South Brisbane and 199 Buses are running constantly.
The Boundary Street markets surround the place so you can get a feed or go chill in the markets. Come and go as you please.
For the first one back we have Brisbane's greatest party band Sixfthick ready to rip the motor room a brand new pineapple ring along with the twangy rocknroll of the 52 Pickups. The folk punk of DROUSER. The flawless tongue in cheek pop of The Stress of Leisure and the twin guitar power pop attack of ROTH. We will be announcing the special guest later on in the month so stay tuned.
Each month we'll have a different DJ spinning tracks between bands and this month we have the loveable DJ Wolvie Trash. Playing god knows what, most likely a demented Xmas tinged love-in.
This is a child friendly event but please bring hearing protection for them.

3pm- 3:45pm The Stress of Leisure
4pm- 4:45pm Drouser BBQ starts cookin.

A BIT MORE ABOUT THE BANDS……………..
What can you really say about this band that hasn't been said before. Two singers who are brothers that were raised on chicken farm outside Nambour with a kick arse band behind them that straddles rocknroll garage high energy punk rock. They've toured the world over played at every major australian festival and supported countless international acts since their inception in 1995. With a strong live following the hick are always as entertaining as drunken uncle falling through the plate glass sliding door out to the veranda.
These guys and gal have been kicking around brisbane for a couple of years doing a kick ass cross section of rocknroll outlaw country and morricone-esque spaghetti western themes all put through a chiming power pop . Featuring ex members for the Girlies Jim Rockrords and Lovejoy/. They really keep an audience transfixed with Murray's rugged good looks and great songs. With smatterings of horns and reverb drenched twang their sound is always moving and never staying exactly the same.
Hailing from Logan, the D’rouser we know today grew out of an acoustic 3 piece called D’rouser and the Dastardly Duo. In the last five years they have multiplied into a 5 piece. D’rouser leading a full band. Resplendent with bass, drums and acoustic guitars, their sound inspires a punkrock sing-along with tinges of folk riffs throughout. With themes based on a misspent youth of depravity in Logan (and with the new confidence his sex-pest attitude has began creeping in) D’rouser have come into their own. Always entertaining.
THE STRESS OF LEISURE
The Stress of Leisure is a band which hails from Brisbane (Queensland), heavily influenced by its sub tropical surroundings. Main songwriter Ian Powne started performing under the moniker in 2005, however, coined the term two years previously writing it on his home recordings. The Stress of Leisure is a truly independent band and continues to release under its own imprint The Stress of Leisure Recording Co. Four albums have been released: The Stress of Leisure (2006), Hour to Hour (2008), Soft Approach (2010) and Cassowary (2012); as well as the 7" single Sex Time (2011). The lineup has fluctuated since inception, however currently is Ian Powne (guitar, vocals), Pascalle Burton (keys, vocals), Jane Elliott (bass) and Phil Usher (drums). Various commentators have referred to the band as 'local pop wonders', as 'criminally underrated', a band that ease 'seamlessly through a variety of genres'.
ROTH formally race of the Harridan are a garage rock band from Brisbane. They blend & bend genres into new, yet familiar forms. Influences of surf beat, Brit pop, grunge, NYC punk and blues can be heard in the ROTH set.Onstage it’s a frenzy of drum rolls, guitar feedback and bouncing rhythms. However, at it’s heart, are infectious hooks and crafty arrangements. They have played the BBQ more than once over the years and we are glad to have them back.
