After a rousing success launching Aussies Against Fracking (AAF) in the gasfields of Tara in southeast Queensland, AAF will now have a local launch and fundraiser on Saturday 24 August at 7pm at the Bangalow Bowling Club.
This musical extravaganza will host a stellar lineup of blues musicians from the region including music legends Leo Sayer (pictured), Kevin Borich, James T (Canned Heat), together with international bluesman Wolfmail.
Many other local talents including Lil’ Fi and special guests such as AAF patron Doc Neeson will lend their support. Echonetdaily’s own S Sorrensen will interview a number of guests including ‘The Frack Man’ Dayne Pratzky and Indigenous leader and environmental activist Jarmbi’je Githabul.
A limited number of lithographs by artist/musician Reg Mombasa (Mentals, Mambo, Dogtrumpet) will be auctioned, including the recent and now infamous drawing of musician and environmental activist Ash Grunwald surfing the methane bubbles of the Condamine River. This image has gone viral internationally and as well has garnered repeated exposure in the mainstream media.
There will be other prizes to be auctioned as well as video messages of solidarity from patrons and supporters such as Doc Neeson, Bob Brown, Ash Grunwald, Pete Murray, John Butler, Xavier Rudd, Marcia Hines, Troy Cassar-Daly, Leo Sayer, Alan Jones and many more.
Bangalow Bowling Club, August 24 from 7pm.
