A Gig for Rod

Further to my post below, the Rod Gilchrist tribute gig takes place this Saturday. Thank you Steph Miller for the following press release:

A Gig For Rod

In March 1998, Rod Gilchrist took his own life. All his friends and musical colleagues were devastated. Rod was a lovely bloke, great drummer, dedicated, hard working, generous, honest. His death was a shock to all.

On Saturday the 8th March, there will be a 10 year party gig to remember Rod and to bring together all the friends that knew and loved him. There will be many bands including Complete Madness, Evil Roomers, Urban Guerillas, Mr Bee - members of The Scream, Roaring Jack and The Wickermen. (Rod was a part of the legendary Roaring Jack, Thursday nights at the Sandringham Hotel, Newtown.)

The venue is The Bald Faced Stag, 345 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt from 7.30 'til late. There will be a door donation of $5 (or more if you can afford it). After costs, the money will be donated to one of the many organisations dealing with depression, anxiety etc.

Everybody is welcome!
