The brainchild of Ben Salter (The Gin Club, The Wilson Pickers), Flavours of Skuzz will take place over 11 hours (4pm-3am) across three stages at Woodland Bar in the Fortitude Valley. Bands performing include Hoss and Brat Farrar from Melbourne; Straight Arrows, Jonny Romeo and the Gooch Palms from Sydney; The Meatbeaters from Adelaide; and local bands HITS, The Vee Bees, The Boondall Boys (ex-Onyas), Dick Nasty, Slug Guts, Blank Realm, Velociraptor, Undead Apes and Keep On Dancin's. Full line-up below.
Salter said the festival grew out of a desire to book Canberra “grog rock” four-piece The Vee Bees in Brisbane. “I asked a bunch of local garage/punk/whatever bands if they would play if I done a silly festival and whaddaya know they all said, ‘Yes.’”
The event was originally scheduled to take place at the Jubilee Hotel, but has been shifted due to a “set of unforeseen circumstances”. Tickets: $25 available via Oztix now.
