SLAM (Save Live Australia’s Music) needs Fighting Funds

SLAM Vinyl #2 Gotye w/ Perfect Tripod now available! Exclusive artwork by Patricia Piccinini.

SLAM is a grassroots organisation made up of musicians and music lovers, an action group whose members have volunteered their time to ensure that Australia’s fertile music scene is nurtured and protected. In early 2010, the SLAM Rally swept through the streets of Melbourne in protest against over-arching Victorian Liquor Licensing policies that unfairly linked live music to high risk activity. 20,000 protesters marched on Victorian State Parliament, the SLAM Rally was described as the largest cultural protest in Australia’s history. The work continues behind the scenes throughout the year and leading up to National SLAM Day, a day that galvanises our community.

Up to now, SLAM have been operating via the goodwill and generosity of volunteers with zero funding. All the artwork, web building, project managing, publicists time, photography, policy writing, bus fares, coffee, printing, distribution, postage etc have been donated.

We need to raise up to $10,000 per state per year to help cover operational costs and future sustainability. If you marched in the rally or wish to see us continue our work your $10 will go a long way…

Your Pledge Counts!
Simply select from the list of items and experiences that our generous artist friends have donated….each of which comes with the download of our very first single release. You pledge unlocks access to the private updates we’ll be publishing – videos, photos, tracks, blogs, & more! All of the monies raised here go directly toward the operational costs of SLAM!
