Blackie from the Hard-Ons is in hospital after being assaulted by two absolute stains on humanity recently. Fortunately he seems to be on the mend, but will be unable to work or play shows for some time.
We'll be playing 2 shows with the Hard-Ons to raise some much-needed funds for him: Friday June 1 at the Annandale in Sydney, and Saturday June 2 at the Great Northern in Newcastle. The shows will feature former Hard-Ons drummer Keish filling in for Blackie on guitar, and other former Hard-Ons drummer Pete Kostic may be making an appearance as well. Chinese Burns Unit also play in Sydney, and Dead Boss (Pete's new band) play both shows.
You can also donate to Blackie here, and Tym Guitars is holding an auction to win any two Tym pedals of your choice, with all the proceeds going to Blackie.
Please pitch in if you can, and help an Australian music treasure and all-round nice guy.
