Curbing the sweet tooths of local music lovers, Cookies & Cream – Brisbane’s new monthly genre series – is back for round two after a successful launch last Friday night at The Backroom.

Curators of the series, local promotions gurus Vincent & Jules, say that although no one came in mistaking them for a dessert shop, they were pleasantly surprised by the turn out for the show.

“We had a great turn out which was heartening, as there were tonnes of shows on the same night. It was especially wonderful to see so much love for Chief Weapons who were playing their first show,” said organiser Amanda Terry.

Returning to The Backroom on Friday, 20 May, Cookies & Cream #2 is set to be a smorgasbord of stoner rock, indie rock, edgy rock n’ roll and female fronted debauchery. Attendees will be bathed in sonic goodness with locals Fight Ibis, The Stray Selection, Jackalpac and Electric Suede all on the bill.

Headline act Pyre & Ice will also be turning up the temperature when they hit the stage, keen to unveil their new sound since their recent line-up change.

“Pyre & Ice have a fresh sound and the songs we’ve been working on are going great. We’ll be treating fans to our new songs Take All Of Me and Breeze as part of our Cookies & Cream set,” said front woman Teri Abbott.

Like a trip to Max Brenner’s where you just want to eat everything in sight, at Cookies & Cream #2 you can have every slice of musical cake on the menu, without the calories and judgemental eyes.
