AusMusic T-Shirt Day

Do you love Australian music? And care about the people who create it? Thanks to triple j and ARIA #ausmusictshirtday can show each and every one of us how much we love and care. 👕💚💥

AusMusic T-Shirt Day is a massive nation-wide celebration of Australian music that reminds us how lucky we are to have such a strong local music scene, with many highly talented and successful artists across all genres of music. It was created by triple j and ARIA in 2014 to show support for Australian musicians, as part of Ausmusic Month celebrations in November.

But many people in the industry are doing it tough. Thankfully, music industry charity Support Act is there to help. Through AusMusic T-Shirt Day, they raise much needed funds for artists, crew and music workers who are experiencing a crisis or are in need of mental health and well being support.

You can help Support Act by creating an individual or team fundraising page on the AusMusic T-Shirt Day website: www.ausmusictshirtday.org.au and inviting your networks to donate and wear their fave AusMusic T-shirt to work, school or play on Friday 15 November.

The Honey Sliders and Tim Rogers play Let it Bleed

The Honey Sliders 2nd Annual Fundraiser for Support Act with special guest Tim Rogers.
Together they perform The Rolling Stones’ classic album ‘Let it Bleed’ in its entirety – plus more.

Friday 6th Dec – Imperial, Eumundi (doors 7pm)
Saturday 7th Dec – The Triffid, Brisbane (doors 7pm)
Sunday 8th Dec – Soundlounge, Currumbin (Matinee Show – doors 3pm)

From the harrowing opening track ‘Gimme Shelter’, to the album’s poignant closure ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’, The Rolling Stones’ 1969 album ‘Let it Bleed’ was a coming of age that cemented their place in the pantheon of classic rock. Released only weeks after their founder Brian Jones was found dead in his swimming pool, and only days before the disaster of the Altamont festival, Let it Bleed heralded a new sound and direction for the Rolling Stones.

Crashing onto the Australian music landscape in the mid 90’s, Tim Rogers has proven himself to be one of the few true rock stars to come out of Australia. Widely regarded as on of our greatest story tellers and hard rocking gentlemen, Tim is well versed in all the attributes required to sing these songs with conviction. Tim has fronted The Honey Sliders before when they recreated The Stones’ album Sticky Fingers in 2016. Part of Tim’s experience with those shows made it into his book of memoirs titled ‘Detours’.

The Honey Sliders are the Brisbane based country/rock/soul outfit led by singer/songwriter Danny Widdicombe (The Wilson Pickers, The Go-Betweens, Bernard Fanning and more). With a deep love of retro music, The Honey Sliders have wowed Queensland audiences with their annual concept shows recreating classic albums. Since 2013 they have performed Hendrix’s ‘Axis: Bold as Love’, Neil Young’s ‘On the Beach’, The Band’s ‘The Last Waltz’ (featuring Bernard Fanning, Troy Cassar-Daley, Jeff Lang and more), The Stones’ ‘Sticky Fingers’, The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’, and Cream’s ‘Disraeli Gears’ – all to sold out audiences. The support for the night is Brsbane’s own retro groover Dana Gehrman.

Danny Widdicombe has been fighting off leukaemia for 24 years and along the way he has been aided by the music industry philanthropic charity Support Act. In return, Danny put on The Honey Sliders first annual fundraiser for Support Act in 2018. It was such a success, Danny invited Tim Rogers to join them for this special event – The Honey Sliders 2nd Annual Fundraiser for Support Act!

Tickets for all shows $30 + booking fee and are available through Oztix
