This Story Hall exhibition showcased three of Brisbane’s best loved musical venues: Cloudland, The Primitif and The Zoo.

Foolish things

From glittering balls at Cloudland, through illicit jazz performances at “The Prim” to indie rock ‘n roll and reggae at The Zoo, the exhibition captures the thrills of stepping out for a night on the town for generations of musicians and music lovers.

The exhibition accompanied the stage show Foolish Things developed by Brisbane musicians Leah Cotterell and Helen Russell that features hundreds of projected images of musical performance in Brisbane and many classic and contemporary popular songs arranged for this duo of voice and double bass.
