HOPE a suicide prevention fundraiser, happened again this year at Wollongong’s Irish Pub Dicey Riley’s . Rod Manning Photography was there to catch all the bands on his “picture box”. It was good to see such a great turn out for this awesome cause and the show raised a fair a mount of money! A huge thank you goes out to everyone, those who donated prizes to raffle off, the people who donated money and of course all the bands who play for free!!!
Patrick Lyons & The Band of American Creek kicked off the night of with their cool relaxing folk pop rock with a country surf vibe.
Night Goat played next bringing their heavy guitar sound and load drums back up with haunting female vocals .
Baby Machine an all female band from Wollongong came out with a heavy punk rock metal sound with a humorous and political twist
Nice Folk , a psycho/swamp/garage outfit sound like a blend of old school 70s punk rock, acid country , with a dash of folk . A very cool and awesome sound .
Rukus was up after that, Wollongong’s very own heavy as, loud and in your face punk rock. Always love seeing these guys rock the house . They know how to do punk.
Headlining this years show was The Dark Clouds bringing their cool fun filled, heavy punk rock show with killer guitar riffs and killer songs .
