Monster Session: Rock’n’Roll Benefit for MS Australia

Written by Toby Smith on January 15, 2009

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that randomly attacks the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). The progress, severity and specific symptoms of the disease cannot be predicted; symptoms may range from tingling and numbness to paralysis and blindness. MS is a devastating disease because people live with its unpredictable physical and emotional effects for the rest of their lives. This includes the loved ones and friends who support the person through the unpredictable times.

Monster Session is about raising money and awareness for MS as there is no known cure and this Monster Spectacular is a rock ‘n’ roll night not to be missed, with all money raised going to MS Australia. Hitting the stage will be many inspirational and well respected bands from the last twenty years of the Sydney alternative / punk / hardcore music scene. Many of these bands have specially reformed for one show only for Monster Session.

They include The New Christs (with Rob Younger ex Radio Birdman) – pumping out high octane rock ‘n’ roll since the early 80’s. Celibate Rifles – Stalwarts of the local live music scene from the coast to the inner city and throughout the World. Rocks – One of Sydney’s original punk rock bands. Respected throughout the world and still have the fire in their hearts and go off like cracker night.
Also, right through to the 90’s with Gilgamesh, Lawnsmell, Blitz Babiez, Midget, Terrible Virtue, Downtime, Crazy Legs Vermin, Crane No. 6, and This Thing.

Also available ONLY at the show with proceeds going to MS Australia:
Compilation CD of all the bands.
Limited edition Posters and T-shirts.
Auction (items will be on display at the show) then the Auction will be on-line (details soon) Items include: Surfboard, Skateboard and much, much more.
