A timely reminder to hippies and other types who care what happens to your home.

CSG Idol premieres next Thursday, November 29, at the Lismore Italo Club. Giving artists across multiple performance genres the opportunity to perform original or adapted works on a theme of lampooning coal seam gas mining, this unique event has attracted some 30 entries.

Judging will be by vox populi, with audience members casting their votes by tossing gold coins into each performer's uniquely ordained receptacle.

Incidental performers will include Moox Hanley, Paul Joseph, Ollie Heathwood, Bruce McNicholl, Boudica's Army, the Back Verandah Boys, Nimbin High School Staff RocknRoll Band, Barbara Brewster, The Wacky Ones, a band from Bohdi Farm, Mish, Davey Bob Ramsey and Luke Vasella.

This extraordinary convocation of minds and talents kicks off at 7pm and costs a piddling $10, with proceeds going to the CSG-Free Northern Rivers group.
