VAGRANT #3+4 – Talkshow Boy, Scraps, Feet Teeth + No Anchor, The Rational Academy, Anonymeye vs Ambrose Chapel
Vagrant debuted in Brisbane in July over two nights, due to awesome coincidence, at the same venue. Programmed by Andrew Tuttle (Thursday 12th) and Ian Rogers (Saturday 14th), Vagrant’s inaugural Brisbane events brought a whole bunch of weird, wild and wooly Australian acts to The Waiting Room in West End.
VAGRANT is New Weird Australia’s travelling gig series – a pop-up club-night with no fixed abode and an open-source platform for eclectic and experimental Australian music. Following its Sydney launch with GUERRE, SCISSOR LOCK and MAJOR NAPIER, VAGRANT travels the country during July 2012, calling at Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Perth & Adelaide.

To celebrate its third birthday, New Weird Australia is launching three new projects: an open-source, pop-up gig series titled ‘Vagrant‘; a new digital record label, ‘Wood & Wire‘ and an ongoing blog supporting video work from Australian artists, ‘Output Device‘.
