See Wolfmother’s frontman at brewery

Posted: 3pm 26 May 2021

Thirsty Chiefs brewery at North Lakes is gaining a reputation for more than its beer, with big names in Australian music jumping at the chance to play there. Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale will be there this week.

Head brewer and venue booker Callum Grady says Stockdale is playing a gig on Friday night (May 28), a week after Grinspoon’s frontman Phil Jamieson rocked the joint.

“I just hit him (Stockdale) up and asked if he was keen to do a show at the brewery. He said, ‘yes, let’s make it happen’,” Callum explains.

He says the brewery has been a live music venue for a few years now but took it up a notch after last year’s COVID-19 lockdown, when restrictions started to ease.

“We were one of the only ones really doing it,” he recalls.

“We’ve been selling every single gig out. There’s not a lot of live music venues in the area.

“It’s been doing really well and it’s really good to see people are loving having something like this in North Lakes.”

Doors open at 7pm, with the opening act, Jacko from Beddy Rays, on at 7.30pm.

Perfect blend

Callum says the band’s star is rising and the performance follows a recent performance at The Tivoli.

He says Beddy Rays has a strong following among younger music fans while Wolfmother, which formed in 2000, appeals to younger and older crowds. The band is best known for its hit Joker and the Thief (2006).

“I remember listening to them when I was in primary school, now I get to book him in for a show,” Callum says.

He says the show are an opportunity for up-and-coming bands to gain some exposure, but also a chance to bring some big names to North Lakes from all genres.

Food trucks are there on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The popular Benz and Co Burgerology will be there this Friday night.

Tickets to the show are $55 + booking fee.

So, what’s Callum looking forward to most about the show?

“Obviously, the music but also everyone together having a good time. Seeing up and coming artists and one that’s been around for a long time and has dominated the music scene for about 20 years,” he says.

“Having such a big name at North Lakes is great.”
