Empra Acoustic Rock Residency For Oxfam

Acoustic Rock Residency for Oxfam
This Week featuring:
Smoke Stack Rhino
Dellacoma Rio

Oxfam Australia & MTV Music Australia present the first ever EMPRA acoustic rock residency with all proceeds going directly to Oxfam! 

Remember those MTV Unplugged shows from Nirvana, Clapton, Pearl Jam, STP and Oasis? Well in a first of it's kind for us EMPRA, we will be performing a full rocking set of our tunes for you, totally acoustic with acoustic guitars, a smooth and clean sexy bass and kahon drums with glokenspiel, small cymbals, brushes and a cellist! All totally vibed to the perfect chilled out beer drinking Sunday afternoons in August at the Brunswick Hotel. It's even being promoted by the cool people at MTV Music Australia!

And check this out... we've even roped in all our best mates who are in our favourite rock'n'roll bands in Melbourne to join us by performing their rocking sets acoustically as well! There'll also be a couple of surprises when everyone gets together at the end to have a jam of a rock classic each week! 
Entry is FREE or by donation.

What's making this even more fabulous... is that all of us rockers are coming together to have a rock n roll jam to raise awareness about the issue of poverty in the world today! One in three people in the world live in poverty, but there's so many positive things we can do to change this. 

Your attendance can help us raise the issue & your donation can go a long way in a poverty stricken town. ALL proceeds will be donated towards Oxfam.
