For those of you who liked punk bands and that great bar White Chairs, a special reunion day is just around the corner. “White chairs” for those of you who don’t know was located at the back of the Carlton Hotel in Elizabeth Street. It used to be the Carlton Hotel’s Public Bar. This building was one of the many great buildings we lost to the truly awful Myer Centre. In the late 70’s through to the early 80’s White Chairs was a meeting spot for many a Brisbane punk before heading out to live gigs. The beer was cheap and the bar was pretty packed with leather, mohawks, coloured hair, studs and chains.
Return to White Chairs is a reunion featuring a smorgasbord of original bands from Brisbane’s most anarchist musical period. This is going to be a great event with an amazing line up. This is what is in store for you…
