Teneriffe Time Again

The Teneriffe Festival is on again this weekend (Saturday, July 1) with food, fashion, market stalls, entertainment and live music throughout the afternoon. Despite the fact that a few locals have gone out of their way to undermine the festival in recent years, it has continued to grow as a celebration of an area that has a rich history. Teneriffe served as the centre of Brisbane’s wool export trade throughout the first half of the 20th century and was also utilised as a submarine base during World War 2 before transforming into an industrial hub prior to its emergence as a sought after residential area comprising apartments which were once wool stores, coupled with new residential developments, restaurants and retail spaces.

Whilst the riverside location and proximity to the attractions of New Farm, Bulimba, Newstead and Fortitude Valley also makes Teneriffe a popular destination for visitors from throughout Brisbane and further afield, the festival is a celebration of everything that Teneriffe has to offer. Occupying Vernon Terrace between Commercial Road and Florence Street, the festival site includes laneways off Ethel and Darth Streets and the parklands along the river.

The live music program on The Triffid River Stage kicks off at 12.45pm with Hannah Rosa and continues into the evening, with The Steel Syndicate rounding out the show from 8.00pm. Also on the bill are Shag Rock, Christian Patey, Will Anderson and 2016 Queensland Music Award winners in Doolie and Tia Gostelow, whose brand new music video can be viewed below.

Mountain Goat Moments

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.
