Bring Them Here Delivers A Massive Lineup For Great Cause
Some of your favourite Brisbane musicians are getting together to raise awareness and money for a good cause. Bring Them Here – Sounds of Change is a show at The Foundry during Refugee Week that aims to send a message to the powers-that-be to end mandatory detention of asylum seekers.
Patience Hodgson of The Grates, folk-rock band Zefereli, and blues-rockers Baskervillain are just some of the names on the huge lineup performing and telling the Federal Government to change the current immigration policy.
“BTHSC will be a call to action as well as a celebration of the diversity and enrichment refugees and asylum seekers bring to our Brisbane communities. We’re excited to announce so many artists using their talent to be part of the welcome movement,” said event organiser Erin Kennedy.
Psychedelic-folk outfit Golden Age of Ballooning say, “it’s time for Australians to come together, to end the cruel shame that is mandatory detention of refugees”.
Jordan Merrick of Fugitive & the Vagabond also spoke out about Australia’s policy. “All people of the world need to stand together and unite as a global community. When your fellow human is displaced due to conflict or disaster, we must welcome them with open arms.”
The event is highlighting an important issue in the week immediately prior to the Federal election and all proceeds will be donated to local asylum seeker support organisations. Not only that, but with the massive lineup, the show is great value for any and all music lovers.
