We were asked to be part of a special show happening in Melbourne on the 11th of Oct. This is a tribute show associated with beyondblue and coincides with Mental Health Week. As you all know, this is a cause we feel strongly about and we were more than stoked to be asked to headline this 7 band bill, especially in Melbourne and with such an awesome lineup. This will be a huge night.
The details are below and on Facebook:
To mark Mel's birthday, we're celebrating the life of one of the most incredible people in this world.
The date coincides with the end of Mental Health Awareness week, so a bunch of musicians and filmmakers and all-round booze-hounds decided to get together to help raise awareness for depression, anxiety and suicide.
Over the past 10 months, these terms have been flung across all our news feeds. Some of us felt helpless. Some of us wanted to help but didn't know how.
The intention of this day is to reach out to people. Show that we're all here if people need us. Share stories of how we've overcome issues in hope to inspire other people to do the same: Speak up.
To mark this event, we've invited a few friends to come join us. Speaking up through music will be:
We Lost The Sea (NSW)
The Sinking Teeth
Heads of Charm
We've also invited film crew, Gorilla Films to document the event, as well as take interviews for a documentary to be released early next year.
We're seeking volunteers to share their stories publicly, so please feel free to grab hold of any of the film crew if you'd like to share a story.
On top of that, we've also had a collaboration of Ryan Elders and Aaron Reardon to design the poster for us.
Join us and help us make a difference.
All proceeds from the night will be going towards beyondblue.
