Twin Towns rocks area’s status quo

TWIN Towns Services Club has stepped up to fill a gap in the area’s music scene.

The club will tomorrow night host Twin Towns Rock, a concert supporting upcoming alternative bands.

Banora Point band Kill The Apprentice is excited about playing in the club’s showroom.

“It’s special for bands like us to play at a gig like this,” guitarist Sid Constantine said.

“It’s going to be a really good experience in the showroom.

“It’s a world-class entertainment venue.”

Mr Constantine, 27, said the four-member, punk rock band had been playing for about five years.

“We’re planning to tour the east coast early next year after we release our debut EP.

“We’ve played in clubs and pubs in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, but most of the clubs we play at are just horrible,” he said.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for local, up-and-coming bands to experience and play in a room like the showroom.”

Mr Constantine said the only other chance bands had to play in top-quality venues was as supporting acts for touring bands.

“This is the first time Twin Towns has had a concert like this.

“They don’t usually have a lot of local bands.

“Hopefully it will go well and they’ll keep doing more in the future.

“If it takes off that’d be great.”

Gold Coast band Brothers and Brisbane band The Ride will join Kill The Apprentice for Twin Towns Rock, which kicks off at 9pm (DST).

Tickets are $10 and available at www.twintowns.com.au, on 1800 014 014, or on the night.

Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
