Great Northern, Byron Bay, Saturday

Punk bands Fait Accompli pull together to raise money for Russian hard-core free Pussy Riot.

They packed out the Flinders Hotel in Sydney a few weeks back with the most punk party line-up they’d ever put together so they’ve decided to bring the crazy party to the Bay. Featuring on the night will be the special debut screening of a breathtaking short film by local Byron Bay label Tallow Gallery, starring talented young up-and-coming surfer with punk attitude aplenty, Cloudy Rhodes. The film, titled Journey, sees Cloudy traverse through some epic landscapes from South Africa to Mozambique and Swaziland. This film ties in with the important message that women and all humans alike have every right to get out there and share their stories with the world, a rite of passage that unfortunately still remains a rare concept in many societies, even in these modern times. So join Fait Accompli, Pirates Alive, Mylee and the Milkshakes, Bec and Ben and The Deers. Dress colourfully or bring a colourful balaclava and a smile to celebrate the right to freedom of speech, a right that wasn’t afforded to the three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot who are currently serving two years’ jail for speaking out against their government.

Saturday at the Hotel Great Northern. Gold coin donation with proceeds going to Pussy Riot lawyer fund.
