Brisbane’s newest music venue opened its doors for the first time last night in what is a very exciting development for local music fans and artists alike. Established in a former WW2 hangar in Newstead, The Triffid is the brainchild of Powderfinger drummer John Collins and is a welcome addition to Brisbane’s live music landscape. Local, national and international artists will appear at The Triffid, with an impressive array of artists already confirmed for the first few weeks of operation.

Between now and the end of this year, the likes of Ed Kuepper, Paul Dempsey, Screamfeeder, Stonefield, Velociraptor, The Delta Riggs and The John Steel Singers will grace the Triffid stage. The following months will see performances from Megan Washington, Conor Oberst and Collins’ former bandmate Bernard Fanning.

Every Sunday, Triffid Roots will feature the best blues, roots, folk, contemporary jazz, soul, reggae and world music from Brisbane and around Australia. Hosted by Sarah Howells, the presenter of the Roots N All program on Triple J radio, the Triffid Roots sessions are free events and the first few weeks of the series will feature artists such as Sahara Beck, Hailey Calvert, Mr Cassidy, Jac Stone and Hannah Rosa.
