Novocastrian punk royalty Trophy Eyes have announced a special one-off hometown show with proceeds going to the NSW Rural Fire Service, in the wake of the recent bushfire devastation.
“Last week, one of our dear friends and Newcastle music community legends, Sam Fenning, lost his home to the fires in Nymboida,” the band wrote in a Facebook post.
“He is currently on the search for his dog Otto who was separated from him in the peak of the fire. Sam was extremely lucky to escape with minor burns and cuts, as his Dad suffered more severe burns. But thankfully, both are alive today.
“Unfortunately, Sams house and belongings were not insured and they have to start again with nothing at all.
“We’ve decided to put together a special last-minute hometown show to assist not only our close friend but also our community & state as a whole. As well as do our best to give a helping hand to the brave firefighters and volunteers.”
The show will take place at the Cambridge Hotel on December 15th. Tickets are on sale now.
Hey Everyone – We have been completely saddened to see the devastation and lives that have been affected by the fires…
If you can’t catch Trophy Eyes at this show, fear not, the band recently announced a run of Australian shows for next year. The band enlisted the help of a skywriter to emblazon the sky with their name, to announce their Figure 8 tour. Kicking off in February, Trophy Eyes will make their way across the East Coast with Blessed and Congrats. You can find all the relevant information below.
