Watch Footage From Last Night’s ‘Gig Of The Century’

Written by Zanda Wilson on June 6, 2016

The ‘Gig Of The Century’ went down in Brisbane on Sunday, with a whole heap of Aussie bands coming together to raise money for the #keepcommunityradio campaign.

The concert took place just days after Aussie musicians flooded social media with selfies promoting the #KeepCommunityRadioa movement, in response to the government recently announcing that they’d be cutting $1.4 million from community radio.

The gig was announced at the very last minute via social media, but that didn’t detract from the number of punters who lined up to see headliners Violent Soho and The Smith Street Band, as well as supports High Tension, Jess Locke and Joelistics at the Crow Bar in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

The Smith Street Band had been touted to play the gig from the start, but Violent Soho only got involved after they got in contact with Smith St on Saturday night to find out if they could get involved.

Organisers, local radio station 4ZZZ, raised over $3,500 for the night, simply by asking attendees to donate what they felt the gig was worth at the door.

Check out some fan footage of the show, below.
