Rock Against Racism
Rocking Against Racism is a form of musical empowerment protest that was initially sparked in the 70s following a bunch of horrible things in England and across the world. The sentiment is that there is no place for racism in music. Indeed, so much of the music we listen to has it’s roots within communities routinely discriminated against.
Political and social activism is how we can push back, and if it’s a great gig with amazing artists, well then, how can you not? This is the launch of Rock Against Racism Australia (RARA) and bands from throughout Sydney will help raise money for two community groups – the Refugee Action Coalition (RAC) and the Indigenous Social Justice Association (ISJA).
Bands: Cosmogenic, The OzSkas, Los Monaros, South West Syndicate, On the Stoop, The Regime, Syntax Error and The Crimplenes.
Also featured will be Blak Douglas, dance performances by Biridja Burruguus, Pacific Dreamz Dance Group and a host of special guests.
At the social and cultural hub that is the Marrickville Bowlo, I reckon you’ll love groovin and movin and connecting with mates old and new.
