On Saturday, 16 December, you might want to head to The Triffid for this unmissable event: A Very Pissy Triffmas. Yep, that’s what it’s called. Brisbaneites, get excited.

Kicking off the musically festive event is Citypiss, the Brisbane band hosting a reunion show in celebration of their third album, No. 1.

The Triffid is promising great live music and fun for Christmas lovers, with Citypiss scheduled to play three shows. They’ll be joined by The Cairos, “Brisbane’s moodiest Rock Gentlemen return from the dead and bring with them sonic explosions from beyond,” per the band’s own description of the event.

Also joining in on the fun is Good Oak, a group led by Busby Marou and Brisbane’s finest musicians, who bring a blend of roots, blues, country, and rock and roll music. Nostalgic indie band Seaside will also perform, as well as folk-punk Smallest Horse, who “sing and shout about cute dogs and starting families, and about dealing with loss and moving forward” – that’s as relatable as music gets.

Elsewhere, A Very Pissy Triffmas has locked in Queensland indie rockers Betty Taylor, Boing Boing, moody pop-rock outfit GhostMutt, and My Friend Chloe.

In addition to all the music already announced, Citypiss’ James "The Sheriff" Watford will perform a solo set as Just Jim, or "What Citypiss would be if it was Just Jim". Other surprise guests include harp-accompanied sessions by Alejandro Riccajervo and Lake Kelly.
