GIG Of The Century

“It was a last minute announcement for something very, very special. After being locked in around lunchtime yesterday, some of the finest live acts in the country joined for a pay-as-you-feel fundraiser for Brissy community radio station 4ZZZ. And by all accounts, it was a bloody ripper.

Featuring a spoken word opening from Joelistics, the gig featured sets from Jess Locke, High Tension, The Smith Street Band and Violent Soho.

Much like Soho’s recent Sydney show, there was some collaborative action from Smith Street Band’s Wil Wagner.

The show took place as part of the recent #keepcommunityradio movement following the coalition government’s $1.4m defunding. Organisers of the gig told triple j that the even managed to raise $3500 for 4ZZZ.” – FasterLouder
