    Young people like to be entertained, especially if it requires little effort on their part. This is why festivals are popular; you just turn up and it’s all there. That’s why events like Generate, where a whole lot of young people come together in one day over three stages to make music to entertain other young people should be a shindig. These specific entertaining young people are QUT Music and Sound students and this is what they live for. From acoustic to post-rock, pop to sound art, avant-garde to neo-folk. We throw down the gauntlet and challenge you to be entertained by them. Come see young people like Ball Park Music; Jackalpac; Ivy May Dillon; Cascadeer-meets-Old Man, Great Chief; Bec Plath; Karla Harrison; Lizard Queen; Dana Gehrman; Vlada Ederidge; Motive; Brianna-Kate; Tom Eggert; Noosphere; The Sound Art Ensemble; and more from 11am to 5pm at the Brisbane Powerhouse on the 24th July, 2010.
