  • I Said Slag Off! - Whiskey & Speed, NIL & Hang live at Rics Bar

    Punx, rockers, metalheads, grungers, hipsters, club rats, suits...we don't care who you are or what you like, come and check your rock n' roll fix!

    A hell of a show is coming to Rics Bar on April 28!

    After miraculously still being allowed to enter the venue, Whiskey & Speedreturn to bring there grungy punk groove and maniacal stage show back to this Valley staple...first few rows may get wet.

    Joining the infamously sexy W&S are No Intelligent Life - N.I.L, while they may not be intelligent there music kicks some serious arse. A melodic mix of Black Sabbath and Nirvana with a very Mudhoney type vibe. These lads are balls to the wall, you know, be careful around the walls so you don't hit 'em in the balls.

    Opening the night are solo folk punk act Hang - Brisbane's answer to Johnny Hobo (he'll either blush or punch me for saying that). Socially and politically charged music, this bloke while suck you in and hit you with some truths...and is certain to piss off any One Nation supporting idiot in earshot. They say never trust a man who plays guitar, so keep that in mind.

    This show is near guarenteed to sell out with the low, low entry price of free.

    Links to the bands pages are up, they all have some music out so get listening and come party at this killer night of rock n' roll and many, many beers!

    Doors at 8pm
    FREE entry
