Grungy Decadence

What if we told you that you could witness Guns N’ Roses battle it out with Nirvana, in an intimate venue in your very own Brunswick street of the Valley?

 

Well you can’t, it’s completely impossible. 

But New Globe Theatre have managed to swing something that might do instead. Kicking off the ‘Choose Your Weapon’ series, a host of Brisbane’s most devoted rock and grunge outfits have been rounded up to interpret the songs of Axl and Kurt. Adding their own contemporary edge is all part of the fun, so what can we expect? 

Garage rockers Junkyard Diamonds tag-team with their pals Walken, to take on the tunes of Nirvana. TrashQueen will probably be doing what they do best, and delivering old school rock, Gunners-style.

Also repping Guns N’ Roses is self-professed ‘Rock & Roll in a G-string’ Bertie Page Clinic, bringing lashings of cross-dressing and a hint of perversion with their burlesque-inspired take on rock. These guys were once kicked out of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for being too loud and too naked. Need we say any more…

So which ‘weapons’ will be battling it out during the rest of the series? Who knows. The cast of Part 1 have divvied up the tracks for a night of epic covers - all you’ve got to do is don a studded leather jacket over your favourite flannel shirt.

When: Saturday 10 January 2015

Where: New Globe Theatre, 220 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley

Cost: $12 from http://events.ticketbooth.com.au/event/GunsNRosesvsNirvana or $15 at the door
