LOGAN audiences are in for a treat with a mix of the region's talented musical acts, art and spoken-word performances next month.
The multidisciplinary event, Art Plus Beer is at Monkey Tree Brewing Co in Underwood, on July 24, and features Canterbury College artist Briana Dinsdale and a host of other performers from across the city.
Logan creatives, headed up by Ali Strachan and Jimmy Watts, created the event.
"Our flagship events will feature a combination of cultural stories, different mediums and focus on providing a unique, and visceral arts experience," Ms Strachan said.
"We want audiences to walk out feeling understood, connected, invigorated and alive."
Since COVID, many live music venues are still operating at severely reduced capacity, with devastating impacts for the industry. Mr Watts said live music was the lifeblood of the industry.
"Getting out to attend live gigs like this is crucial to support the music industry," he said.
"Combining an eclectic range of genres with live art and exhibitions should make it even more enticing for audiences to get out and see some of the incredible talents all based here in Logan."
The data shows that audiences are just as eager for live music as they were pre-COVID. The collective plan to take advantage of this and tour these events across the region, working with local businesses to activate spaces with something unique and fun.
Along with Dinsdale, the evening will include sets from pop band, Mayan Fox, country pop singer-songwriter Rae Leigh, and Logan's own hip-hop crew, LC Official.
Audiences will expect live art from street artist Phil B, spoken-word performances by Naavikaran, and exhibited work from First Nations artist, Allan Kina, wildlife artist Ronelle Reid, fluid impressionist Chloe Wigg and pastel and charcoal artist, Stacey Bennett.
Dr Nicola Hooper, Dr Zeynep Akcay and Orcan Nisli will present James the Rat King, an immersive multimedia experience narrating the story of the Bubonic Plague. It will be the show's first time out of Brisbane.
