Mannequin Republic would like to thank everyone involved with the excellent event held on August 2 at the Hi-Fi Bar (123 Boundary Street) in Brisbane’s West End.  It was an awesome night for the local heavy music and metal scene that we were stoked to be a part of.

For those of you who were there live in attendance you will know that once again Mannequin Republic’s own Trinatyde stole the show and got the crowd moving along with a host of other great metal acts including Among The Vanished, End Us, Sensaii, Eye of the Enemy, Floodsnake, Kick The Butterfly and Symbolic Weapon.
