Support indie bands at Murphy's Bar on May 2

THREE independent bands will showcase their original, live music next month at Murphy's Bar and Liquid Lounge Nightspot.

The Queensland bands, including Fraser Coast rockers Arcade Vandals and local newcomers Waking Voices, will take the stage next Friday, marking the first leg of Toowoomba band One Dirty Bird's album launch tour.

Last Mango in Harristown is the first album from One Dirty Bird which has played together for over a decade.

The band's talented guitarist, Luke Crane, has called Maryborough home for most of his life.

Finalists in the Fraser Coasts Last Band Standing competition in 2013, Arcade Vandals, who have been played on Triple J radio and gigged across the Wide Bay, will support the Toowoomba band along with Waking Voices who will perform their debut gig.

Waking Voices manager Justine Ohl said Luke Karolak and Jamie Saunders may be a new collaboration but they were sure to put on an excellent show.

"Long-time acquaintances, Luke and Jamie finally decided to jam together," Ms Ohl said.

"Compatible in both personality and musical influences, they're combining their unique talents, enlisting the assistance of seasoned local artists Jason McNabb on drums and Chris Shevelling on bass.

"So support independent Aussie music.

"Treat yourself to a night out of music that you won't soon forget."
