Renee Heaton is an avid live music supporter and regular gig-goer in Canberra . Also a sufferer of rheumatoid arthritis, Renee is confined to a wheelchair. You’ve probably seen her at the Greenroom, UC or ANU, moving her way to the front in an attempt to see!

At the moment, her electric wheelchair is in a bit of a state and she is in need of a new one, but they don’t come cheap! At $10,000-$15,0000 a pop they’re a bit out of her price range. Garry from the Greenroom as well as 6 Canberra bands, including Barrel of Monkeys, have rallied together to organsie a fundraiser event for Renee’s new wheels.

100% of door takings from this gig will be donated to Renee, so come along and help Renee out and have a good time doing it.

Who: Dog Act, Cool Weapon, Gasma, Cold Heart Projects, Spoil, Barrel Of Monkeys

Will the new wheelchair be decked out in true Pimp my ride fashion?

You need 666 people to get 10 grand that way.

The gig is cursed, cursed I say!!
