Despite sweltering heat in Brisbane on Saturday, plenty of people flocked to Fortitude Valley to take in a feast of free live music as part of the 2017 Mountain Goat Valley Crawl. With 20 artists across five venues, there was plenty of variety on offer throughout the night for music lovers of all persuasions.


Those concerned that The Zoo might have lost some of its mojo in the wake of recent renovations will be pleased to know that this Valley institution remains a seething pit of sweat, with the recent changes to the layout only serving to make movement through the facility a bit easier and provide greater capacity both in front of the stage and at the rear of the venue adjacent to the bar.

Hosting the first publicly announced reunion gig by Butterfingers, The Zoo was a heaving mass of steam and sweat as Evil Eddie and his band mates ripped through the Butterfingers back catalogue and teased with some new music that is soon to be released.

A selection of images from the 2017 Mountain Goat Valley Crawl are now available for viewing in the gallery.
