The Panda Room Saturday 23 July!

The Panda Room Returns This Saturday!

The Panda Room materialises at Big Trev’s Takeaway in Tingira st Portsmith this Saturday 23rd of July with 3 great acts..

Rob Howe and The Guillotines

Indie-Rock outfit, ‘Rob Howe & The Guillotines’ are a new supergroup on the scene comprising of Cairns locals Rob Howe, Tullara Connors, M Sanjay Jude, and Jack Brant. Rob Howe, is best known for his work with UK band Polarsets who were seen showcasing at events such as BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend, SXSW and as support to Interpol. Now with his focus solely on his new project, ‘Rob Howe & The Guillotines’; he is ready to showcase this killer lineup as they release new music throughout 2022.

A blend of Indie-Rock, Alternative (think The Gaslight anthem, the killers, the war on drugs), and music grounded in stories inspired by travels through the West Australian wilderness, South America, and spending 6 x months in lockdown in a little cottage in County Durham, ‘Rob Howe & The Guillotines weave catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements – instantly engaging and begging to be heard again and again.

The Brazilians

The De facto Panda Room house band (well it’s their P.A and lighting rig powering the gig, and the venue is their drummers fast food shop!) The Brazilians were borne in the pubs nestled amongst the Mulgrave Delta cane fields of deep far north Queensland. The band got their start playing loud and proud, the twin guitar attack of Macalpine & Williams competing against the industrial din of the Gordonvale sugar mill pumping 24/7 across the road from their gigs.

The Brazilians rock. Has a great tough swagger!!!!! Love it” – Ray Ahn, The Hard Ons

Blending the lyrical wit and wisdom of Supersuckers and the musical chops of AC/DC getting their blues on” – Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture
