BRIEFS was born in the back warehouse space of a bookshop in Brisbane’s West End in 2008. The boys put on a club night to give performers the chance to try out some new late night cabaret/variety acts. There were no rules or restrictions. They weren’t answering to a brief or a venue or a funding body. It was purely artist driven with no agenda. It was completely off the radar. It was stuck together with a bit of hope, gaffer tape and glitter.
