SLAM calling for pledges to keep independent music

TRUE believers in live music have a chance to put their money where their ears are.

SLAM (Save Live Australia's Music) is calling for pledges to assist in its work in ensuring Australia's live music scene is nurtured and protected.

For more than three years, volunteers have dedicated countless hours to ensuring live music issues are placed firmly on the political agenda.

SLAM needs to raise $10,000 per state per year to deliver National SLAM Day.

SLAM eschews government funding or corporate sponsorship, because at times it needs to be highly critical of such organisations.

The group is calling on live music lovers to pledge as little as $10.

In return they get exclusive downloads, one-on-one mentoring with musicians such as Gareth Liddiard (Drones), Steve Kilbey (Church), Richard Lloyd (Television), tickets and after party passes.
