Cause Brisbane has amazing live music
You may have noticed over recent times, I've been writing my way through the A-Z of Brisbane's live music. Seems I'm not the only one. Recently, I saw a band and musician map of Brisbane located here. I'm sure neither the author of the map, nor myself meant our creations to include everyone; I know I created my reviews to spread the word about the live music in Brisbane.

So have a read of some of my live music adventures, as I worked my way through the alphabet:

A - Astrid and The Asteroids - blast off with cosmic pop

B - Bankrupt Billionaires - hip hip, soul and samples
Bertie Page Clinic - rock'n'roll in a g-string
Brother Fox - festival music

C - Choon Goonz - looping duo bring the beats

D - The Dillion James Band - part blues, part reggae, part roots, part funk, lots of fun

E - Electrik Lemonade - get your booty shaking to these funky tunes

F - Fat Tuesday - five pieces of original recipe funk

G - Galapogos - rocktronica

H - The Halls - Hard to define but well worth listening to

I - Inland Sea - local ten-piece band perform folk music

J - Jungle Monx - more funk from this five-piece

K - Kooii - afro-beat and reggae, with a touch of swing, latin and ska.

L - LeSuits - nine-piece heavy funk / rock / metal band

M - The Mouldy Lovers - a good dose of gypsy and a whole lotta dance

N - Night Time Fiona - good ole rock'n'roll

O - O' Little Sister - acoustic folk solo artist

P - PocketLove - funk / soul / R&B

Q - The Quadratic Contingency - four-piece jazz band
Quorum Consensus - hip hop, funk, metal and industrial grind

R - The Rooftops - a little roots, a little reggae, a little soul, a little funk

S - Silver Sircus - theatrical music

T - Transvaal Diamond Syndicate - Dirty blues rock - GYSO

U - The Ugly Sessions - Toowoomba blues jam, hosted by Ugly Graham and the Pretty Boys, on the first Sunday of the month

V - Vinyl (at the Hi-Fi Bar) - live music, drinks, food and games

W - The Whiskey Archive

X & Y - X & Y Bar - industrial grunge interior hosts live music

Z - Zvonsky - West End locals play gypsy music
the zoo - celebrating 20 years presenting live music

So, I cheated a little for some letters, but decided that my choices were venues that play a key role in live music in Brisbane, so I'm ok with that.

Now the floor is open to you, my readers. Who did I miss? What's your recommendations for amazing, hard-working, local live bands that I should put on my radar and make the time to go see? Comment below!
