Sunshine Coast riff lords, Hobo Magic, have outgrown their Australian roots, and are branching out by heading to the home of psych riffage - Europe. But before they jet off and relocate themselves in the cold, they did one final stretch of dates, including a home show at Solbar. Teaming up with younger psych Indie rockers Fight Ibis, The Unknowns, and Old Home, Cynthia Lee was there to capture a big night dedicated to the monster-sounding trio. Here’s to the riff!Read More

Christmas got a little dark this year, with goth shock-rock legends Darkc3ll bringing the heavy to Solbar for one big night of riffage. Joining the onslaught were Coast heavyweights Plague The City, local weirdos Spew’n, and kicking off the night was Black Banner.

It was basses all loaded at Solbar for this event, which saw Brisbane’s Osaka Punch, team up with Melbourne’s The Omnific, and locals, Muules for a big dirty night of sweat-drenched prog/djent/alt rock. Three bands, four basses, one guitar. We sent Cynthia Lee in, prepared in dark pants (so many basses, you’d never know when the brown note might appear), to capture the night in all its glory.Read More
Out on a solo run on his ‘The Endless Cycle of Maintenance Tour’ , You Am I’s (and accomplished author) Tim Rogers swept through The Playhouse at Solbar on September 27th, accompanied by singer/songwriter Dana Gehrman.

We’re not sure how Solbar’s roof is still on after the rock’n’roll onslaught from Brisbane’s (and frequent visitors to the Sunshine Coast), Port Royal rocked up at storm while on their Love Passion Satisfaction Tour.
Teaming up with newly-Brisbane-ised Machine Machine, and locals Fight Ibis and The Unknowns, it was a sweat-drenched good-time mess, and photographer Cynthia Lee was to capture it all.

Looking more like a mini-festival with this line-up, we sent Cynthia Lee to capture some of the buzziest bands of the moment at Solbar, when Sydney's Rackett decided to swing through on their Space Cadet Tour.Read More
