Music tops youth?s week

WITH music thumping and girls on their boyfriend's shoulders waving their arms, The Butterfly Effect came on stage to a screaming crowd of Rockhampton youth.

National Youth Week came to an end yesterday with a concert and workshop by chart-topping band The Butterfly Effect.

A crowd of about 2000 attended the free concert at the Rockhampton Music Bowl to celebrate our young people.

The main drawcard to the music and fun were two Brisbane bands, Glasshouse and The Butterfly Effect, who spent the weekend in Rockhampton and Yeppoon providing entertainment and lessons.

The Butterfly Effect shared some of their trade secrets with local youth who wanted to break into the music industry.

A workshop was organised by Q-Music and featured the band who spoke to a captivated audience at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre yesterday morning.

The workshop discussed the local music scene, how to develop networks and get that toe in the door.

Local bands Pulse, Enlighten by Darkness, The Silence and Guilty by Association opened the night and warmed up the waiting crowd for main bands Glasshouse and The Butterfly Effect.
