The Gin Club
11:30 PM The Troubadour Level 2, 322 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley 4006
The Gin Club are a musical collective based in Brisbane, Australia who perform an eclectic mix of rock, pop, folk, blues, country, psych, prog, slowcore, and everything in between. Since their formation in 2003 they have toured Australia, travelled abroad to the U.S, Canada and New Zealand, and played with acts as diverse as Paul Kelly, The Drones, Tim Rogers, Iron & Wine, Lambchop, Midlake, Band of Horses and Laura Veirs, and released three albums to critical acclaim.
Their most recent release is Junk , an ambitious double album featuring 26 original songs by 7 singer/songwriters. A sprawling, ambitious affair, Junk covers a breathtaking amount of musical ground, from rousing gospel rock’n’roll rave ups, to mariachi revenge fantasies to string-laden death ballads. However despite the number of songwriters, influences and styles, Junk has a strikingly cohesive and distinctively Australian feel, in both words and music.
