The Gasometer presents a special one-night gig with a cause, Boundless Plains.
Collingwood’s The Gasometer Hotel is known only too well for its impressive array of live music acts and diverse DJ gigs. Now, for one night only on Friday 8th December, this lively pub will get ready to host a particularly special live act. Presenting Boundless Plains, a benefit concert which cares to raise awareness and funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC).
Some of Melbourne’s finest musicians have banded together in support of asylum seekers and refugees by performing on the night. Kicking off from 6pm until late, the stellar line-up includes the Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir, Georgia Fields, Maya, Wolf and Willow, Shannen Wick (Fulton Street), Elsie and The Vibe, Jess Fairlie and Kye.
“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 artists playing at Boundless Plains are raising awareness of the inhumane and unethical policies that have led to a long term violation of human rights towards asylum seekers. The night will also 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.
