First Show a Success Despite Early End

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

The first Mannequin Republic showcase last Saturday has set the standard very high for the rest of the year despite its early ending.

Thank you to all the fans who turned up and donated to the flood effort.  Mannequin Republic is proud to be involved and contribute to the Premiers Disaster Relief Appeal’s $145 million fund.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, you missed excellent performances by The Violet Alibi, The Irrits, Decades Away and The Last Outlaw, who put on another amazing concert.

We would like to apologise to fans of In The Walls who were left out in the cold by the early closure of the venue.  Never fear, In The Walls will be back with us again in the near future to rock you senseless.

You have another chance to catch The Last Outlaw, The Irrits and The Violet Alibi on Saturday March 5thmore...

Flood Benefit/update

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

As we all well know, the floods have been all over the news and it’s been terrible. Today Brisbane is set for a huge flood. We’re lucky here at Mannequin Republic HQ. However so many people are not. Our hearts go out to people that have lost loved ones and those that have lost homes. Today Brisbane waits.

Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel a gig or two. Tonight’s 299 show involving, The Last Outlaw, The Violet Alibi, The Ovaries, Hack, and Gathered Below, has been cancelled due to band members being in isolated areas. The Valley is expected to be flooded as well in coming days. We hope that our music community hangs tight and everyone remains safe. The community is banding together as well. A number of benefit gigs are being set up. Stay tuned for more that we will be involved in. We have one of our own … more...
