Take Ten With Gathered Below

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

Short and to the point, our friends at Gathered Below give us some interesting answers about the fierce competition in the Brisbane music scene, their influences and what pushes them to write music.

What are you looking forward to most about this year?

Gathered Below: Just getting our name out there, trying to get as many shows as possible and playing with heaps more bands.

Why name your band Gathered Below?

Gathered Below: It’s referring to the position of our testicles.  But, really we don’t know the reason behind the name.  It was just a suggestion and we all liked it so we stuck with it.  When we think about it, the name can have various meanings, it’s something different to all of us.

The Jon Experiment and Hack Rocked The Valley

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

Mannequin Republic would like to thank all of the fans who made it out for Rock The Valley to be part of the local music scene.  The faithful were rewarded by outstanding performances by our own Hack and The Jon Experiment.  As supporters of independent rock music, we thank you and all the bands who performed for us that day.

Fans were also treated to a special show the next day by The Jon Experiment who headlined the Sunday show at Brunswick Ink Tattoo.  Another awesome treat for Brisbane music fiends.

We would also like to give a special thank you to all the event organisers, sponsors and people who put in the effort to make these events happen, including Hydra Studios, 4ZZZ Radio, Brisbane Backline, Rave Magazine, Saltar Hype Entertainment and Brunswick Ink.

Of course none of it would have been possible without the throng of die-hard, moshing … more...

Trinatyde On 4ZZZ

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

Special thanks to our friends Trinatyde, who gave us a shout out on 4ZZZ during their Rumble Rock Wrestling interview last month.

You can see the interview on YouTube and hear the boys chat about all ages gigs, the metal scene in Brisbane and how they go about giving us the great music they do.  It’s worth a watch.

You can catch Trinatyde on Thursday June 16th at Club 299 (299 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley) for a show with The Last Outlaw and The Violet Alibi starting at 9:00 pm and again on Friday the 24th at the Transcontinental Hotel (482 George St, Brisbane) with The Last Outlaw and Geomantra at 8:30 pm (and it’s free!).

Come along to the shows and be part of Brisbane’s live music scene!
