    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.
