Gold Coast Gig Guide: Live Music & Nightclubs

Featured Gig of the Week has to be Dead Kennedys, who play at the Coolangatta Hotel this Saturday. Jello Biafra may no longer be fronting the band, but we will still be setting up our VCRs to record Matlock and heading down to the Cooly. Tickets are $57.15 in advance, available here.

Opera in the Park is also on this Saturday: “Just a Touch of Broadway” brings you songs from some of the biggest shows like Phantom of the Opera, Chess and Les Misérables. Performers include Donald Cant, Amelia Farrugia, The Gold Coast Choir and The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra. This free event takes place in Kurrawa Park Broadbeach, and starts at 6pm.

Lastly, if you feel like a good festival and a long weekend away, the Caloundra Music Festival begins this Friday and runs through until Monday night. Artists playing include John Butler, Pete Murray, Wolfmother, Baby Animals, Thirsty Merc and about a gazillion more. You can get full event details here.
