Show, direct from the New Orleans Mardi Gras. It’s all happening on Friday 19th February, tickets are $39+BF and can be purchased through www.brisbanepowerhouse.org.

Neon Indian – ‘Psychic Chasms’
If you had the pleasure of seeing Neon Indian at Moth recently, you won’t need me telling you how amazing this album is. Psychic Chasms is the Texas band’s first LP release and has garnered an enormous amount of praise. An interesting mix of guitar and synth sounds; it has an electropop/psychedelic rock feel to it that may remind you of MGMT. Before you screw your nose up, the sound is definitely their own, and the album, at only 30 minutes long, is sure to secure Neon Indian’s place as one to watch! Get your hands on a copy from Jan 30th!

Scott Spark – ‘Kathleen EP’
The Kathleen EP from local Singer/Songwriter Scott Spark is a sneak peak at what we can expect from his forthcoming LP ‘Fail Like You Mean It’. A beautiful, easy listening set of songs you’d pair perfectly with some quiet evening cocktails; the talented pianist and vocalist tells stories of love and hurt in an upbeat, enjoyable set that leaves you wishing for more. Be sure to see him live at the Brisbane Powerhouse during April!

flashback Flashback to 1987!
Cast: Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill, Vince Colosimo, Claudia Karvan, Isabel Lucas
Director: Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig
In cinemas Thursday 4th February.

The year is 2019. A mysterious plague has swept over the earth, transforming the majority of the world’s population into vampires. Humans are now an endangered species – forced into hiding as they are hunted and farmed for vampire consumption to the brink of extinction. It’s all up to Edward Dalton, a vampire researcher who refuses to feed on human blood, to perfect a blood substitute that might sustain vampires and spare the few remaining human’s. But time and hope are running out – until Ed meets Audrey, a human survivor who leads him to a startling medical breakthrough. Armed with knowledge that both humans and vampires will kill for, Ed must battle his own kind in a deadly struggle that will decide the fate of the human race.

4ZZZ has 5 double passes to a preview at Myer Centre, BCC, Thursday 3rd February, 6:45pm. To win, hit reply and tell us where in Queensland Daybreakers was filmed.
