The coast’s newest music, events and arts venue, Mo’s Desert Clubhouse, swings open its colourful doors
The worlds of music, art and events have collided in spectacular fashion, with the creation of a rad new space in the Burleigh Heads called Mo’s Desert Clubhouse. A bare industrial warehouse has morphed into the coast’s newest creative space, bringing everything from live music gigs to art exhibitions and events to the southern end.
Mo’s Desert Clubhouse, located in Burleigh’s Central Drive industrial precinct, is the handiwork of one very talented trio – Kim Ferguson, a band manager by trade, plus musician Christian Tryhorn and artist Emilia Ugarte. The eclectic space is set to bring some pretty decent music gigs (well, there is a band manager in the mix), plus a series of events like art exhibitions and yoga classes. There’s also a pretty flash music rehearsal room, which is available to hire for daily jam sessions, as well as co-working spaces, meeting rooms and hot desks that can be hired for a pretty el cheapo rate.
Renowned artist Mystic Rufio was given the task of creating a psychedelic art piece on Mo’s 20-metre long warehouse wall – it’s a darn impressive story from the desert, which has created the perfect visual identity for the new music, arts and events hub. Whilst it’s early days for the Mo’s crew, the warehouse has already become a hub for local musos, artists and creatives looking for a welcoming and vibrant space to work and create. Let’s be honest though – a reputable band manager, muso and artist under one roof is a recipe for greatness. Mo’s will be pouring coffee soon too, but until then, head down, hang out and soak up the vibe. Find Mo’s Desert Clubhouse in our Stumble Guide.
