Some of Melbourne’s finest musicians have banded together in support of asylum seekers and refugees by performing a benefit concert to raise funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC).
Boundless Plains features a stellar line-up, including the Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir, Georgia Fields, Maya, Wolf and Willow, Shannen Wick (Fulton Street), Elsie and The Vibe, Jess Fairlie and Kye. The gig will go from 6pm until late on Friday, December 8 at The Gasometer Hotel.
“We are deeply concerned about Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers and refugees, and our country’s ongoing violation of human rights,” Elsie (Elsie and The Vibe) explains. “In light of everything happening at the moment, we felt like we had to take some sort of action.”
The night will feature speakers and engage the community in discussion on ways to support those currently seeking asylum in Australia and around the world. All musicians are giving of their time, and 100% of funds raised through tickets and raffle sales on the evening will be donated to the ASRC.
Tickets are $10 + bf in advance and $15 at the door.
