Afghanistan: After Dark Tickets

Queensland Museum presents ‘Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures From The National Museum, Kabul’, which showcases over 200 archaeological finds that tell a tale of cultural wonder once thought lost.

The artefacts were thought to have perished hundreds of years ago until they were unexpectedly recovered from secret vaults in 2003.

Part of the exhibition is After Dark, an exotic evening enticing you to explore the heart of the Silk Road. Experience the rich and diverse culture of Afghanistan through music, storytelling and cuisine, and discover why this mystical country still remains unknown to many.

Featuring live music from Triple J’s DJ Sharif Galal, the Silk Road Lounge, Collector’s Bar, traditional tea services, live Afghan cooking demonstrations, and entry to the Afghanistan exhibition, which opens September 5.

After Dark takes place on three Fridays only: October 11, November 15 and December 13.

A Western Tickets

Join UK artists Action Hero in the Basement bar and take part in an up-close, chaotic, half-arsed remake of the classic western.

“We want to make a western. We have a cowboy hat and some ketchup. We want the scene where our hero walks into the bar and everyone stops talking. We want the scene where the whore begs to be loved. We want to cheat at cards. We want blood and guns. Everyone will have a moustache. All the bad guys laugh. Dust blows across a deserted street. Music.”

A Western takes place at the Basement, Metro Arts from September 10-28.

"Sharp, witty and poignant ... a truly epic piece of theatre ... a beautiful pipedream of a show — one that places the audience at its heart. 4 stars." The Guardian

Charlotte McLean: Top 5 Artists

1. Kristin Berardi. Kristin is unique because of the control she has over her voice. She is a rare vocalist that knows her own instrument more than most instrumentalists, yet still sings with such emotional integrity. Did I mention she can swing?

2. Lettuce. These guys are so cool! Other than their almost metronomic sense of time, they are able to play astoundingly difficult music while making it sound so tasteful. I am impressed with the way that they pay tribute to icons of funk, soul and jazz while still pushing funk in a new direction.

3. Becca Stevens. The way she writes and arranges has changed the way I look at what I would like to accomplish as an artist. Her lyrics are moving, her voice is genuine, and she is a talented band leader.

4. Bobby McFerrin. He seems to have a superhuman sense of time and his intonation is insane! He is technically proficient and an accomplished improviser, and has a gift for bringing out the best in an audience.

5. Erykah Badu. Such a unique tone, great rhythmic feel and killer band! I could listen to her for hours. She has a commanding stage presence and I always love what she wears. She is just the coolest.

Charlotte McLean performs with her quintet at the Brisbane Jazz Club tonight, Thursday August 29.

Savo: Top Five Tracks Right Now

1. ‘Over Here’ — Partynextdoor feat. Drake. Anyone who knows me knows how much of a Drake fan I am, and I was really excited to hear about Drake co-signing a new artist and pretty keen to have a listen. I must say I’m loving this sound. This track is easily my most played track for the last two weeks.

2. ‘Kiss Land’ — The Weeknd. As usual, The Weeknd is back with another one of his unique styled songs. ‘Kiss Land’ is a huge favourite of mine, simply because the way he seems to structure and flow with the beat. I am addicted to his unique sound and I don't think anything he'll put out will ever disappoint me.

3. ‘Make A Mill’ — Partynextdoor. This is pretty much the first solo song I've heard from Drake's new artist, Partynextdoor, and I am already addicted to his sound, which is very similar to The Weeknd's. I am really looking forward to what he will release in the future, I can see this guy becoming a really big artist, not just in the States, but the whole world.

4. ‘Objects In The Mirror’ — Mac Miller. This is by far one of my favourite tracks from Mac’s new album. I really like this one in particular because it's different to what he usually does. Instead of rapping, he brings his singing back, similar to what he does in his jazz songs. All in all, I’m really liking this new direction.

5. ‘Money Trees’ — Kendrick Lamar. I just feel like I can’t supply a Top 5 without including a track from Kendrick. Such a big inspiration in what I do with music, and I can really relate to a lot of his songs.

Introducing: Moka Young

If you need an audio reference to what we sound like, think of...

J Cole, Lupe Fiasco.

My first gig was...

At Neverland Bar, Coolangatta.

I settled on my name...

About two years ago. Moka is my middle name, and Young is my mother’s maiden name

In the studio...

I let the magic happen.

If I could tour with anyone...

It would be King Hov, baby.

To date, my most embarrassing moment was the time...

I don’t really have an embarrassing moment; gettin’ naked is all part of the fun.

Life on the road...

Is fun. New adventures are something to look forward to. Eating shit food is the only downfall.

If you’ll have me on your bill, all I ask is that the rider contains...

A bottle of Remy Martin with two crystal glasses and a bucket of ice and tongs.

The most scary scenario I’ve found myself in was...

When I was bushwalking; I fell down a crevasse, a rock landed on my arm and I had to cut it off using a pocket knife — it took me about 127 hours.

What celebrity would you love to be spokesperson of the band...

I'd love Danny McBride to be my spokesperson, ‘cause he'd be funny as f*#$ and you'd never know what was going to happen.

Moka Young’s debut EP, ‘Young N Restless’, is out September 1. He plays miami shark bar september 20.

Elixir: Top Five Pop Sax Solos

1. ‘Just The Way You Are’ — Billy Joel. Phil Woods beautiful alto sax solo is GOLD! Love, love, love it — incredibly lyrical and interesting.

2. ‘Smooth Operator’ — Sade.
Sade's voice is so sexy it is crazyyyyyyyyy. Also sexy saxophone... so a double wham thank you ma'am moment.

3. ‘Careless Whisper’ — George Michael.
Alto saxophone of Steve Gregory. I wonder how many babies were conceived to his tasty solo? I can't think of this solo without thinking of that ridiculous film clip — ‘80s magic.

4. ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ — INXS. Alto saxophone of Kirk Pengilly. This song is just perfect pop — what a killer band.

5. ‘Who Can It Be Now’ — Men At Work. Greg Ham made the sax cool for me... love this band and really love his playing. And while I am at it, it was a very sad and unjust day when Larrikin Music managed to sue Greg and Colin Hay — very sad. RIP Greg.

Elixir headline the Noosa Jazz Festival August 29 until September 1.
