UNITY: The Equal­ity Cam­paign Concert

A whop­per line-up of new and old mu­sic lords unite to raise funds for mar­riage equal­ity

Time Out (Sydney) - - MUSIC & NIGHTLIFE -

IN THIS, THE season of mu­sic fes­ti­val lineup re­veals, we are pre­sented with a pretty golden one. For one night only you can watch a wildly pop­u­lar in­die band, two Oz rock from the Re­cov­ery-era re­union line-ups and a bevy of lo­cal genre-span­ning gems. The best part? They’re all tak­ing to the stage to pro­mote and raise funds for the fight for mar­riage equal­ity.

UNITY is a concert that not only ad­vo­cates for the rights of same-sex part­ner­ships but is also a fundraiser, with 100 per cent of the ticket prof­its go­ing to Aus­tralian Mar­riage Equal­ity (AME). The gen­er­a­tionally di­verse mu­si­cians will all be per form­ing for free and the raised dosh goes di­rectly to aid­ing AME’s on­go­ing Equal­ity Cam­paign.

And, ph­woar, what a line-up. See mini sets from the Jez­abels, Killing Heidi and Fren­zal Rhomb as well as an in­ti­mate song bun­dle from Sarah Blasko, Holly Throsby, Jack Col­well, Andy Bull, Mojo Juju and Lonelyspeck. Aside from be­ing a great show with an en­vi­able fes­ti­val­savvy pro­gram, the UNITY event is a chance to show your sup­port for the LGBTQIA community and their rights in the face of the gov­ern­ment’s most re­cent jabs at a plebiscite. ■ En­more The­atre, 118-132 En­more Rd, New­town 2042. 02 9550 3666. www.en­morethe­atre.com.au. 8pm. $70.
