Return To The White Chairs, The Triffid 14-10-18

Return To White Chairs Vol 2 is the second instalment in reunion gigs
that reunite a punk and counterculture music loving crowd that met
and drank at the infamous Elizabeth St bar in Brisbane City between
Polarised by politics and conservatism at this time,
Brisbane birthed of some of the world’s most influential punk, post
punk and counterculture bands, and Return to White Chairs Vol 2
celebrates this time, the music and the many people that loved
and played in the scene.
Return to White Chairs Vol 2 is proud to feature the era’s earliest
punk legends RAZAR, reforming again after a notorious show 29
years prior at a Brisbane speakeasy. 
Second to RAZAR on the throne are Ipswich darlings
The Toy Watches, all 40 plus years honed at their craft
and still just as energising as they were then.
A massive support lineup includes other recognised names from back
in the day including The Horny Toads, Scrap Metal, Public Execution,
The 5 Hanks, Vacant Rooms and The Chrysalids playing genres across
Punk, New Wave, Rockabilly and Power Indie Pop and Rock.
More recent combinations of players from the era are found in
Dr Bombay, Dangerous Folk, The Bollocks,
and Cultured Few who represent indie rock, punk and celtic punk
rock.  This is a huge day and night of talent, nostalgia and fun!
Also featuring a VISUAL FEAST of 1000’s of photos and posters from
this era, this is a not to be missed and once in a lifetime reunion
with this lineup.
We thank the Triffid, Axelle Dee, Punkfest and the State Library
for contributing so generously to this fundraiser and
all those unsung and singing heros and punters that will support
the ultra poor of the projects of Growing Nepal Foundation,
through this event.
