In Brisbane the music venues are closing down, I'm playing in an original band here and have played well known venues but to ten or fifteen people most shows
Also seems ironic as was said Powderfinger never cracked Europe or America but also chose to stay living in Aus at the time.....look at AC/DC, none of the band live in Aus anymore........singer from Jet (hate that band) singer is moving to Italy!!
Wow Spides, the scene sounds as dead in Brissie as it does in Sydney :(
If I was young and ambitious I'd move to Europe - Britain or the mainland - for sure.
