Cut Copy is a free exhibition showing on Level 2 of the State Library of Queensland from 28 September 2020 until 9 May 2021 which showcases music posters and handbills from bands and venues of Brisbane's independent music scene of the 1970s and 80s.
The posters and handbills were a source of advertising and promotion at the time but are now artistic and cultural artefacts of this significant time in the city's' music history.
