Sydney siders, this morning noticed hundreds of memorial plaques scattered around the CBD area. It was because of the controversial hashtag #KeepSydneyOpen.
We played our first shows in venues that no longer exist. They’ve shut their doors because the lockout laws have crippled Sydney’s late night economy. Tomorrow we headline Listen Out Festival in Melbourne for 15,000 people. We wouldn’t have gotten here coming up in todays Sydney. So many other Australian artists may not be discovered without somewhere to play. Surely we aren’t the only ones who want our city back. #KeepSydneyOpen
If you are a supporter of the laws, there is a Sydney rally coming up on Sunday October 9.
