The Rolling River Review, described as the crème de la crème of the northern rivers’ ‘active musician’ scene, performed to a packed Star Court Theatre for the sold out premiere of two new Lock The Gate films over the weekend, kicking off the National Week of Action against coal and coal-seam gas (CSG) mining. Many of the all-star lineup have their own anti-CSG songs and had an opportunity to perform them alongside fellow songwriters and musos. To organise screenings of ‘Undermining Australia’ and ‘Fractured Country’ go to http://www.lockthegate.org.au/films or DVDs can be purchased from Gleanings in the Star Court Arcade.
Support The Echo
Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.
Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
