EVENTS

LIVER TONIC! July 28 2017

HRVic are celebrating World Hepatitis Day & the possibility of the elimination of Hep C with a massive musical line-up on Friday July 28th at the Memo Music Hall in St Kilda.

The music industry- an industry which, more than any other- sustained numerous losses thanks to the hep c virus.
HRVic are inviting community members, those who’ve worked at the coal face getting us well again, and anyone who’s life been touched by the virus to celebrate with us.
We’ve assembled an extraordinary cross-section of our inner-city music culture. The flair and attitude of Hugo Race (performing with Michelangelo Russo). The drama and intensity of Ron S Peno (Superstitions/Died Pretty) performing with Cam Butler. Plus those ‘pillars of spouse rock’ Harry Howard & Edwina Preston (of the NDE) with their ‘crunchy, laconic’ post-punk. There’ll be appearances by Steve Kilbey of The Church and also by comedian Greg Fleet. Last of all, we’re wheeling out The Peptides – ‘The world’s greatest punk rock pop covers band’ (with guests Sean Kelly (Models) and The Ears (Sam Sejavka), plus regulars Angela Howard and Rob Wellington of Winter Sun).

Harm Reduction Victoria invites you to celebrate ‘Liver Tonic’ with an all-star line-up of artists.
Through the years, Hep C has cut a swathe through our alternative culture – but its demise is now on the horizon.
It’s been a year since new treatments began curing people en masse, and Harm Reduction Victoria is calling you out to celebrate in the kind of atmosphere only MEMO Music Hall can provide.

It doesn’t matter who you are. If you’ve been cured, or doing the curing. If you’re someone who needs that last shove into treatment. If you’re family or friends of someone who’s been touched by the virus. Or if you’re just there for the wonderful line-up – you’re all invited to share the love.
