The Kelvin Grove precinct is home to a collection of institutions, from universities and schools to a community at the bottom of the hill, the Urban Village. Kelvin Grove is also home to La Boite theatre company, which has lived at KG since the 1970s. La Boite has historically been involved with the QUT community, collaborating with final year theatre students in productions, and are now collaborating with Vermillion Records and other local artists to host Intermission: Autumn Edition this Friday.
La Boite has shared that this event is free for all to attend and will feature food trucks, market stalls, art and free live music from an impressive local line up, including DVNA, who is also performing at the Guild’s In Session Festival in July.
For QUT students, the platform is also being provided to Vermillion Records to have a feature artist at this event. For those who don’t know about Vermillion Records, here’s a quick refresher from their website.
Vermilion Records is a not-for-profit, student-run record label based out of Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.
Our roster of young, emerging talent are current students and alumni of QUT, as well as other local musicians. We consider ourselves a stepping-stone label for both musicians and students who are keen to work in the music industry.
Vermilion Records is managed by a team of QUT students and music school staff. Our artists have full use of QUT’s state-of-the-art recording studios and live music rehearsal facilities. We are an internationally-minded label, who are absolutely willing to team up and work with students around the globe.
Both La Boite and Vermillion have centred themselves as pillars of the QUT creative community, and their collaboration with Intermission seems to herald a new post-COVID future that provides platforms to QUT Creatives.
Intermission is on the same night as the Glass Launch! And, good news, the QUT shuttle bus will be operating on the night if you’re hoping to catch both events.
