After four years in the wilderness, Magic Castle returns on Thursday, December 13 to raise the roof off the Basement at Panthers Port Macquarie and raise funds and awareness for headspace.
It’s time to celebrate the fifth birthday of headspace Port Macquarie, a local service that offers young people (aged 12-25) access to mental health support, health advice and general information.
The team at headspace include psychologists, social workers, youth workers and a GP.
All headspace services are free.
This year’s line-up includes:
Coming out of the sun and surf of Byron Bay, Mini Skirt proudly represent the scum and dirt of their scenic hometown's underbelly. Delivering raw and choppy pub punk driven by relentless and direct lyrics, Mini Skirt cut the excessiveness of modern rock, simmering it down to the bare essentials and attitude.
A singer songwriter from Newcastle who is renown for her emotionally-driven indie-folk songs, which are intensely personal. Turner has lived immersed with creative influences; her mother a visual artist and her father a poet. Falling somewhere between alt country and indie rock, her exquisite, smoky vocals coupled with her knack to write emotive, vulnerable songs is nothing short of addictive.
A three-piece fuzzy power-pop garage band from Port Macquarie. After many lineup changes over their 8+ years the band currently consists of American ex-pat and founding member Mark Spence on guitar and vocals with Adam Murray on bass and Wade Mobbs on drums.
Brothers from the same mumma, Genes are a fun and energetic rock duo.
A 21 year old folk songstress living out of an 89’ Toyota coaster bus playing music in every nook and cranny on the east coast. Her debut album Motions & Potions launched August this year and saw the singer/songwriter hit the road for a national album launch tour.
Past years have seen the artist tour extensively as a support act to the likes of Ian Moss (Cold Chisel) and James Reyne (Australian Crawl) while landing a spot at a string of festivals like that of Festival of the Sun, Wingham Akoostik Festival and Mountain Sounds Festival. Her performance is honest and songwriting true to her zeal for telling stories.
And last but not least PHIL JAMIESON, lead singer of Grinspoon. Need we say more.
