"The Smith Kids Are Alright" - benefit gig for Gavin, Ned & Tadhg Smith

Copy and pasted from the Facebook event page:

Cate Groufsky was an "irreplaceable soul", and her sudden passing has left a massive hole in the lives of many, none more so than her partner Gavin Smith and their 1 y.o twin boys, Ned and Tadhg.

In a show of mass support from a music community that Gav has been involved in for over 20 years, (The Cants, Sons of Lee Marvin, The Ghoulies,) a benefit, support & memorial gig will take place on Sunday October 24 at The Tote.

Doors open 1.30pm
$20 entry.
BBQ, Raffle, Donations.

Nici Blue Eyes
Damn The Torpedos
Wrong Turn
The Devilrock Four
Bakelite Age
Sons of Lee Marvin
Russian Roulettes
Digger & The Pussycats
The Meanies

In facing the obvious and immediate financial implications of such a life altering event, this is a genuine way of helping out Gav, Ned and Tadhg. But more importantly this day will enable family, friends and even strangers to come together as a community and give support to the Smith boys, and to help remember and celebrate the irreplaceable soul that was Cate.
