Indonesian d-beat powerhouse Kontrasosial were set to hit local soil next week for the first time, but unfortunately they've been denied visas. Tour cancelled. Aussie border protection: gotta love it!
As frustrating as this is for us, it's far worse for the band. They've probably sunk a lot of money into the tour that they won't be able to recuperate. As such, Blackwire have announced that next Thursday's show will go ahead as a fundraiser to help these out-of-pocket punks out. Sydney locals Unknown to God, Dark Horse and Obat Batuk are all still on the bill, so it'll be a good night regardless.
The idea is to fill that sweaty little room to capacity. See you there.
