The Beach Rd Hotel is hosting a five-night festival of sorts called Bowlarama, from Wednesday 18 February to Sunday 22. Kicking things off the Wednesday is the Love and Guts Art Show, with this year’s theme based on the “vagabond lifestyle of today’s professional skateboarders”. Brisbane indie rockers Yves Klein Blue and local Ernest Ellis will be playing live. Thursday sees the Slam Skater of the Year Awards, with live music from Hell City Glamours and DJs Scott Wolfe and Dynamite Sounds. Friday then sees Dust Tones present Fatlip (The Pharcyde), Maelstrom, The Ponies, DJ Showdown, Madd8V and Bentley spinning tunes and grinding amps. On Saturday it’s the Van’s Off The Wall gig, with ’70s punk/goth rockers Chaingang and a surprise guest featuring, along with DJs Scott Wolfe and Dave Slade.
