The world’s premiere soundtrack cover band Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Cover Band today announce they will be performing a special, all-star charity fundraiser extravaganza show this July 26 in Sydney at the Lansdowne Hotel.

The show will feature the original band, along with guest appearances from a cavalcade of local music stars, including Urthboytriple j’s Gen Fricker, videogame
sleepmakeswaves – who will also be playing support on the night. After performing their first shows in 2017, BIRDMAN: OR THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF A TONY HAWK PRO SKATER SOUNDTRACK COVER BAND has gone from being a funny idea amongst friends to becoming one of the country’s most popular nostalgia acts, performing timeless songs from the classic THPS Beerwolf and Le PieBloodsPalmsvideogame
series soundtracks, including hits by Motörhead, Goldfinger, Suicidal Tendencies, Rage Against The Machine, The Ramones and more. Their raucous, hilarious shows have seen them grace the stages of Secret Garden Festival, Vivid, Octoberwest, PAX Videogame Conference, and have received attention from major media outlets, including Pedestrian, triple j, Music Feeds and The Project.

They’re now looking to use their surprise popularity to raise funds for a great cause, along with help from some of the country’s best musical talent and performers.

Speaking about the Skateworks Project, the organisation’s Executive Director Jon Burns says, “ These programs are delivered side-by-side with Aboriginal elders in an effort to reconnect indigenous youth back to culture and country through the balance of skateboarding. “The Balance Stick” is a school holiday program specifically designed to create the outcomes which elders and community representatives desire for their youth. Youth connected to culture, so they can skate and be great. The little wooden bridge from the past to the present.”

BIRDMAN: OR THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF A TONY HAWK PRO SKATER SOUNDTRACK COVER BAND says, “We really hope fans of the band, the music we play, and all the wonderfully talented people volunteering their time to come rock out with us will come along to help raise some cash for this awesome cause. Skateboarding and skate culture has brought us a lot of joy throughout our lives, and we really want to see these kids, who may not have access otherwise, realise the lifelong benefits of skateboarding as well.”
