Scrappy Coco are a folk punk trio from Brisbane that play a variety of punk and punk adjacent tunes with high energy and banter. If you hear the name Scrappy Coco in town then definitely give it a go, it’s always going to at least be a lot of fun.
This show was absolutely wild and hard to photograph. So much went on and I’m a big new fan of Wizzard Lizzard. Firstly they look exactly how they ‘ought to and the bassist is wearing the shirt for the same Carcinoid demo I’ll be reviewing this week. At some point a guest vocalist joined from the crowd and I was able to replace him at the front. The final song, some dude in a suit had to stand there holding the guitar amp plug into the amp and this is stoner doom so the songs like 7 mins haha. Big show, I’ll be sure to get to the front early next time.
One of the highlights of the night and I had a real hard time getting photos, at least there’s this short video that pretty much captures the dark essence of the performance. I definitely want to see them again soon, I’m sure i’ll have this camera figured out by then. It was a really intense performance, particularly the singer who has strong anti-stage presence. Paired with the themes of the music, makes for a very memorable and intimate experience.
A really fun trio from the “gold coast” who have a very danceable stoner rock kind of sound as you can tell by the photos of people literally dancing (below). I suspect their sound is going to get bigger and heavier as they continue to play and write songs.
Gutterfire are a brand new band on the Brisbane scene but as the first band up on this bill they certainly showed they have a strong open. Definitely one to keep an eye out for.
These guys were the only death metal band on a stoner doom bill and it ruled pretty hard. No matter what kind of show it is, you can add Death Metal to get the energy back up. Crowbar Brisbane is pretty good at a lineup typically.
