February gig guide – Live music on the Gold Coast


A trip to the Gold Coast by seminal 80s artists Sunnyboys, The Celebitate Rifles and Ed Kuepper leads the gig listing for February.

But the touring acts don’t stop there. The Gooch Palms, Twelve Foot Ninja, Paul Dempsey, Lagerstein, The Choirboys and Moreland and Arbuckle also have shows from Helensvale to Miami, Parkwood to Currumbin.

Local superstars Hussy Hicks, Casey Barnes, Adam Brand and Hanlon Brothers also have hometown gigs. There’s new ‘music in the park’ events at Cooly and Kirra, Waitangi Day celebrations at NightQuarter and Southport Sharks, Currumbin RSL has launched new Deck Acoustic sessions, Hard Rock Café continues its Friday night shows, both Adancetown Pub and Wallaby Hotel host original emerging artists and Summertime Sessions in the Village returns too.

In short, February’s a big month for music on the Gold Coast. You should go catch a gig…
