Nothing for youth to do? Live music nights start soon
ANTHONY Breed Music is putting itself on the live music map with the first of what will be a series of public gigs next weekend.
Central Queensland act Animal Throwdown, local tutor Brandon Harrison and Brisbane rock act We Are Servants will take to the stage at the live event room on Saturday, June 13.
Anthony Breed Music has been operating since 2007 and sells acoustic, bass and electric guitars, amps, acoustic and electronic drums and more.
It also provides music lessons to students in the region.
Held at the back of the music shop, the opening night of Anthony Breed Music Events will be the start of a regular event at an affordable cost to people of all ages.
"We wanted to open up that opportunity for the youth in Gladstone to attend a drug and alcohol-free event," sales consultant Tom Breed said.
"There's not much of that around. So we want to do regular events, most probably monthly."
Tom said the three bands would be playing original songs and a few covers.
Hailing from Gladstone, Animal Throwdown is a six-piece hard rock band known for its energetic live shows.
Formed in late 2012 out of a garage, the band has made a name for itself around the CQ region after winning Zinc GLNG's 2013 and 2014 Gladstone Battle of the Bands.
It's already been a big year for the band, with several shows under its collective belt and more lined up alongside premier Australian acts such as New Empire, Slip on Stereo, Airports and more.
We Are Servants is a hard-hitting band from Brisbane.
Texan vocalist Zach Almond started the band which is well known for its catchy melodies and tight rhythms.
Doors open at 7pm and patrons can enter via the back door.
There will be non-alcoholic drinks for sale and snacks. Tickets are $8 and can be bought on the night.
If you would like to pre-purchase your ticket, pop in to the Anthony Breed Music store at 117 Tooloa St.
