John Collins (JC)

John Collins (JC) has embarked on a vastly different kind of solo project after life in Powderfinger—swapping his bass guitar for venue owner responsibilities.

Over several years, JC created and built The Triffid: an iconic live music venue, beer garden, and cafe in the heart of Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

The visually spectacular live space was built in an old commercial hanger, and is already a favourite amongst national and international touring artists. It’s a professional, state-of-the art live music venue that has also become known for its laidback atmosphere.

What’s on offer at The Triffid? You can see live bands and solo artists, dance the night away to a DJ, sample countless craft beers on tap, and eat your way through a menu packed with tasty options. You can even book the venue for a function. But if you live in Brisbane, you already know all this, because you go there every week, right?
