PHOTOS: On Saturday night the typical pub scene of pokies, TAB TV screens and a bistro binge often seen at Mudgeeraba’s Wallaby Hotel gave way to the annual onslaught of metal, punk and rock for another instalment of Wallapalooza – and this one was easily the biggest and baddest yet.
This old pub’s walls shook for over 12 hours as three stages delivered non-stop wall-to-wall and top-shelf live music, much to the pure stoke of the at-times standing room only crowds.
Joining some of the best local bands the coast has on offer were interstate and national acts of notoriety including headliners King Of The North, along with legendary acts such as metal lords Azreal, Melbourne glam rockabilly shredders The Mercy Kills, Smoking Martha, Lillye, Hammers, Redstarborn, electro robo-drummer trippers Free The Genie and our own wicked locally-spawned goth metal creation Darkc3ll.
We stuck it out and caught a few bands and a few beers, at prices that made this free music fest the best bloody thing we have seen in a VERY long time on the Gold Coast. If you weren’t there, give yourself a swift uppercut, hit up the official event Facebook Page and make sure you get down for pub prices and 12 hours of mayhem next year when the event returns. Proper as fuck, this was fun!
Here’s a gallery of what we shot in between schooners and yarns and dance floor antics.
