Fostering the bands of the future

From its inception Ric's has been an incubator venue. The place you play in order to discover your sound, find your feet and launch into the industry. Having hosted the likes of The Chats, Jungle Giants, Tones and I and Megan Washington, Ric's is the original musical mogul of Brisbane.

Moving live music from our front bar into the backyard during the course of COVID in 2020 has seen incredible upgrades in equipment and more importantly the potential for exposure. All gigs are paid, we don't expect you to play for love. So reach out, let's see which future superstars we can add to the list of Rics alumni.

Rics FAQ

Have questions about Rics? Here are some of the ones we hear all the time that might help!
Rics does have a dress code that precludes track pants, singlets, high vis, basketball or board shorts. Regarding footwear, no thongs are permitted (for safety!). As per house policy we reserve the right to refuse entry if dress standards are not met. These standards may vary on case to case situations.
It is a requirement of law that your physical ID is scanned upon entry. We only accept non expired, physical forms of ID and photos of ID will not be accepted. By law one of the following forms of identification are accepted as proof of age and entry: A current Australian driver’s license or permit, current Australian or foreign passport, current Government issued proof of age card, other current identity documents approved by the Liquor Licensing Division such as: the new digital licences or an overseas drivers license that must contain the persons photograph, date of birth and be written in the English language. Student IDs are not a valid form of ID.
If your licence has expired and you can show us proof, by way of the digital receipt, that you have purchased your new card, we can use the updated expiry date on that receipt. All we need to do is scan your old ID and manually update the expiry date.
The venue does hold a no face tattoo policy. This policy originated years ago when almost all persons with a face tattoo were associated with outlawed motorcycle gangs. The policy was a means to protecting the safety of the venue's patrons and was a reasonable precaution at the time. We now recognise that there are more reasons that a person may have face tattoos beyond that of symbolising belonging to a bikie gang such as the traditional tribal face tattoos commonly known as Ta Moko or Moko Kauae in Aotearoa (New Zealand). As a result of this cultural edification we approach every instance of face tattoos individually. If you do have a cultural or traditional face tattoo, our policy is for a manager to come and introduce themselves and discuss it with you. Culturally significant face tattoos should not strictly disallow you from entry in this venue. Please make sure you ask for a manager, rather than only discussing the matter with a security guard.
Neck and hand tattoos are perfectly fine.
Rics only has a cover charge after 10pm on Fridays and after 9pm on Saturdays. This may vary slightly but is pretty reliably true. Cover charge is only ever $7 except on New Year's Eve.
You most certainly can! Submit an enquiry form via this website with some links to recordings/videos your music. If you suit the style of Rics then our venue manager Dylan will get in touch with a date to play!
