The Hanging Tree will reform for the Blackbird Rising charity gig with The Potbelleez, Skunkhour, Juice, King Clam, Tax and The Mitchell Anderson Orchestra.
Held on November 27 at Sydney’s Factory Theatre, The Blackbird Rising chairity gig will support beyondblue to help raise awareness of mental heath issues and suicide prevention.
To help support the cause, 90s stoner-rock group, The Hanging Tree, have announced their reformation; donating their services to the worthy cause.
Joining The Hanging Tree in their plight are fellow 90s bands Skunkhour, Juice and King Clam, as well as electro act The Potbelleez and The Voice’s Mitchell Anderson and his Orchestra.
Suicide claims more deaths in Australia than road accidents and is the leading cause of death among men under 44 and women under 34. The Blackbird Rising gig will help to reach out to those in need, to support them and to aid them in getting the help they need.
All bands have donated their time and services to the cause, so too has the gig’s venue, The Factory Theatre, who have donated the entire venue to the night.
The event is 100% non-profit with all proceeds being split between beyondblue and a trust for the children of admired Australian music industry identity, Phoebe Black, whose untimely death was the catalyst for the Blackbird Rising concert series.
Blackbird Rising will be held on November 27 at 6pm. Tickets to the event are available from the Factory Theatre website, with first release tickets going for $35.
