As always this show is a mix of genres, show casing the wide range of talent that is in our tight knit Rock and Metal Community.

This year we have 3 killer bands performing with entry being only $5! As the show is on a Thursday night it will have an early run time - Doors 7.30 with bands on the hour for 45mins from 8pm so the show will be over well before midnight so no excuses about it being on a school night!

Watch Me Burn
Watch Me Burn are a 5 piece hardcore band who like loud angry noises and breakdowns. Learn some lyrics, get in our faces and come have a mosh with us \m/

Thirty Years Late
We like our rock with a little bit of groove…
Thirty Years Late was born from a desire to play hard rock that makes you want to move. For the last few years it’s been exactly what we’ve achieved.
In the last three years we have released two EPs with our most recent EP (Life Botox) mixed by UK Producer Kenny MacDonald.

Subsistence
[suh b-sis-tuh ns]
noun
1. The means by which one maintains life.
2. The act or condition of subsisting.
3. A thing which has real existence.
4. The state of being inherent.
Subsistence means "the means by which one maintains life". For all of us in the band, that is music.

As always the cut that Black Frog would normally take from an event will also go to the Jethro Morrow Health Trust.

Here is a bit more about Jethro's story:

In October 2010 when Jethro was 8 months old our lives changed overnight.

I took Jethro to Starship Emergency Department thinking he was suffering dehydration from a flu, hoping they could help get some fluids into him. As we were about to be sent home Jethro produced a funky coloured vomit and a nurse decided to do a blood test. It was then we found out his kidney's were no longer working. Within 48 hours Jethro was in surgery having a catheter inserted through his stomach so he could begin Dialysis to work for his kidneys as his no longer did. That was a shock, but to then find out his kidneys were failing because he had a very rare condition Atypical Hemolitic Uremic Syndrome was a real blow!

There is no cure, and no treatment guaranteed to help him survive. It is just trial and error to keep him stable as this condition is so unpredictable and spontaneous. 60% of children die within the first year of diagnosis. The complications associated with this illness are
- Kidney failure
- Seizures/Neurological problems
- No response to supportive treatments
- Return of HUS even after kidney transplant occurs
- Severe Hypertension (high blood pressure)

We had to begin intense treatment with Plasma Pheresis, which consists of hours of removing his blood, spinning it, depositing it with other blood products and putting it back into his body, and regular infusions of Fresh Frozen Plasma.

What a little fighter he is though! He was on life-support within days of us finding out he was sick, but within 48 hours he was back and smiling away at us.

Since his diagnosis we have spent many months living in Starship, he has undergone many surgeries, and every week we go to Starship for a whole day to have FFP Infusions, we have now had over a year and a half of Plasma Infusions every thursday.

For Jethro to have a chance at a long life we need to get him onto a drug Soliris, as fate would have it the world's most expensive drug. It it is his only hope of having a somewhat stable life, and is proving to help the few others with this condition around the world. This drug is around $500,000 annually, however, we have recently found out that while his weight range is between 12-20kg it will cost $200,000 annually. He would need to be on it for the rest of his life. We have applied for funding and been rejected two years in a row now as it is an ongoing cost.

Soliris is now funded everywhere else but in New Zealand.
