Here’s all the events hitting Greaser this May

The Colliflowers, Jane Street and Staremaster are among the acts set to take to the Greaser main stage this month.  

You might not have thought that Greaser would top their stacked lineup of music events throughout April, but they’ve somehow done just that this month.

It should come as no surprise that the venue, lying in the gritty underbelly of the Prince Consort, is able to wrangle some of Brisbane’s hottest acts, since Greaser has a reputation as a premier music hub.

Last month, Greaser welcomed the likes of Pornstar Supercar, twin duo My Daydream, Weary Wizards Federation, and the May calendar is looking equally starry.
