Check one, two

Loco Parentus (above) is one of the five young bands that will perform at Soundcheck an all-ages gig in Lismore.

In 2006 three students from Jetty High School in Coffs Harbour formed Loco Parentus. It all started when young drummer Alexie Pigot and funky bass player Aaron Gooley took an interest in petite guitarist and singer/songwriter prodigy, 12-year-old Sunday Faynes, after seeing her play at school events. They then joined forces and became the band Loco Parentus.

The trio will play their Nirvana, Ramones, Deep Purple inspired music at Soundcheck an all-ages, drug and alcohol-free concert to be held at the Lismore PCYC (corner of Orion and Dawson Streets) on Friday, February 29.

Also featuring at the gig are The Kamikazi Thunderkatz, the Gas Giants, Mad As A Hatter, and Belief In Aeroplanes. Should be a grand night of hassle-free rockin music enjoyment for the younger groovers. Its good to see concerts staged outside the usual alcohol-fuelled venues so young people can attend in a safe and drug-free environment. Its about the music not the booze, you know...

The concert has full security, starts at 6.15pm and finishes at 10.30pm.
