In a matter of weeks, conservationists, Sea Shepherd will take their three ships, the Steve Irwin, the Bob Barker, and the Brigitte Bardot southward from Australia into the cold, remote and hostile waters of the Southern Ocean just off the coast of Antarctica. To support this endeavour you can attend one or both of their annual fundraising events.

The Hotel Great Northern will be hosting this stellar event from 8pm Wednesday 23rd November.

Australian artists Ash Grunwald and Kram have joined forces, and there’s nothing they like better than making psychedelic improvised awesome rock blues together. It’s called KRASH.

Alongside Krash will be Dallas Frasca, The Grains, and none other than Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother doing an exclusive solo acoustic set.

Tickets are available from the Hotel Great Northern for $40! All ticket proceeds go directly to Sea Shepherd.

So be part of the first edition of two Sea Shepherd gigs in Byron Bay.

Keep your eyes out for the exclusive ‘A Night with the Captain’ at the Owl and Pussycat on Saturday 26 November with Captain Paul Watson in person!
