With the sad news that Blackie from the Hard On’s was physically assaulted last week and in hospital, last week we were stoked to see a couple of benefit shows popping up for the legend in the northern states. Today we are proud to share a killer show that will be happening in Melbourne with all proceeds heading to Blackie.
On the 10th of June, Gasometer will be playing host to CONATION, USELESS CHILDREN, COUNTERATTACK!, WHITE WALLS, DADDY LONG LEGS and TYRANNAMEN in one huge show!

The two assailants were arrested by police. Blackie has been in hospital since Thursday night with a skull fracture,16 stitches and swelling on the brain. He will be there for a few days still, while the docs make sure all tests are done.
Thankfully he has been moved from the critical room to where they keep stable patients. He does not remember all details but he is getting better every day. Not sure when he can play music again.
We will know more in the coming days. He has already been told he cannot drive for 6 weeks due to his head trauma. Please send him a get-well message through facebook , he’ll read it all when he gets out in a few days time. I’m sure he’ll get better soon. He is a pretty tough cookie.
