Category: The Panda Room

The last Panda Room Big Night Out received rave reviews from attendees for the quality of bands, sound & lighting, and great atmosphere, and we have a killer 5 band lineup in store for you at the next one on Saturday the 3rd of December!



The Juliettes

The Juliettes started as a small TAFE music student project but singer/songwriter Jules had a dream, a will and a short line up of songs that they got to working on in hopes of playing the Tablelands Folk Festival. In October 2021 they opened the 40th Anniversary Yungaburra folk festival. Jules had attended this festival for the first time at 4 months old and watched her parents perform there many times after. This same year, Juliettes band member Bella Won the Original Songwriters Competition. The band are about to release their debut E.P/CD ‘State Like This’ which should be available on streaming/download services just before their Panda Room gig. We look forward to The Juliettes making their Panda Room debut!

Abi Muir Band

Abi Muir immediately hooks the listener with goosebump-inducing vocals reminiscent of Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish, captivating her audience with her unique indie-pop sound. From the wistful, dreaminess of her debut single heebiejeebies, to her high energy, subtly sarcastic dance track First Date, Abi’s creative storytelling from her youthful perspective releases a rush of emotions and memories for her audience.

From humble Highland beginnings on the tiny Isle of Barra and now creating her musical footprint in Australia, this young artist has already managed to collect an incredible number of accolades to her name, including: an international win in Unsigned Only, a Finalist in the International Song writing competition and a Finalist in the Queensland Music Awards, as well as multiple wins for her music video First Date.

Having caught the attention of industry professionals and being the recipient of a Regional Arts Development Grant, she has worked for the last year on writing and producing her 5-song debut EP with her band, whilst also completing her grade 12 exams! 

The EP dropped March 25th 2022 and before released it already had award winning songs! Stockholm was the John Lennon Songwriting Contest session 2 Grand Prize winner in the Rock Category, and Still the Same was a Finalist in the Queensland Music Awards. It’s set to be an awesome debut EP!

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 band will of course be playing their new single ‘The Flower Children That Refuse To Wilt’ check it out on Youtube.

Transparent Komeleon

Herberton band Transparent Komeleon, Max Munro, Josh Ekblad and Ace Munro make their Panda Room debut this month. These guys play a great mix of rock n roll with a punk edge and reportedly put on a fantastic show, we can’t wait to check em out..

Sit Ubu, Sit

Featuring members of a few other Cairns underground bands, the band describe themselves as “3 chowder heads who wished they were in Sebadoh, Polvo, Sonic Youth or all of the above” Sounds like fun to us!
