I Get Up Again- A Benefit for Brain Hooper
April 13, 2018 @ 8:00 PM - 11:59 PM
NOW WITH ADDED SIX FT HICK!
The Beasts of Bourbon will re-form to headline a benefit to help bandmate and legendary Australian alternative rock and blues bassist, Brian Hooper, after he was diagnosed with incurable lung cancer last year.
Brian’s illness has devastated his many friends in the Australian music industry, who are rallying to support him and his family.
The benefit – on Friday April 13 – will also feature a reunited Kim Salmon and the New Scientists, Adalita, Mick Harvey, Gareth Liddiard, SixFtHick and Rosie Westbrook.
Further artists will be added to the line-up and announced over the coming weeks.
Organiser and Beasts drummer Tony Pola said:
“I Get Up Again will be a rare and unique show. As you’d expect from an artist of Brian’s pedigree, it will bring some of Australia’s most respected alternative rock, seminal punk and swamp blues artists together for what is shaping up to be an unmissable night.”
Punters who want to support Brian but can’t get to the benefit can donate via through the GoFundMe link
