4ZZZ Market Day 2006
Saturday October 21st
Brisbane's most unique independent broadcaster 4ZZZ 102.1fm have officially announced Market Day Festival 2006 @ The RNA Showgrounds - Saturday October 21st.
In lieu of their 30th birthday celebrations this year's 4ZZZ Market Day Festival 06 is gearing up to blitz all predecessors; with over 50 international, interstate and local bands performing, if you've never born witness to a Market Day - your time is now nigh.
The legendary 4ZZZ Market Day Festival is renowned for diverse music acts from a broad range of genres + market stalls, visuals and performance art. In addition to the acts already announced (see below) 4ZZZ have just released another round of artists confirmed for the Market Day 06 bill,
CurseovDialect: With a live show that combines unrelenting energy, fine tuned execution, and jaw dropping costumes to create a one-of-a-kind concert experience that tears the hip-hop rulebook to pieces, a diverse range of backgrounds (Maltese, Macedonian, Indian, Maori, and Pakistani) means Melbourne's CurseovDialect come off as a non-homogenized tapestry of Australian culture. Their razor sharp political raps, unique flows, and standout production accurately represents their knowledge of hip-hop as world music and the multi-cultural climate of their homeland.
Giants Of Science - Homespun groove-rock heavyweight heroes Giants Of Science are a Brisbane institution. Hand-picked by Maynard James Keenan to tour with A Perfect Circle on their last Australian tour; ten years, two albums and tour's with Powderfinger and Radio Birdman have made GOS one of the best live rock and roll shows of any Australian band treading the boards
today, full stop.
The Disables: On the road this month supporting Boston street punks The Unseen, Brisbane's own perpetrators of unsated angst play both kinds of music; energetic and furious.
