One of our favourite Melbourne music events, the legendary Reclink Community Cup – which pits muso’s and industry peeps against each other in the time honoured war game: Australian Rules football – has this year announced its arrival in Sydney. Finally, Sydney will be able to share in the warm fuzzy feeling that Melburnites get when they watch rock’n’roll, football and, most importantly, the Reclink’s coffers fill, all at the same time.
Battling it out on the football field for the honour of the inaugural Reclink Community Cup will be the Sydney Sailors (who will be adopting the traditional colours of the Melbourne team Megahertz of red and white, coincidentally also the colours of the AFL Sydney Swans) and the Western Walers (who will don the traditional colours of Melbourne’s Espy Rockdogs of red, yellow and black, which is also the colours represented on the Aboriginal flag). The Sydney Sailors will consist of music industry personnel and will be captained by Adam Spencer, whilst the Western Walers will be made up of Sydney’s musicians and will be captained by Dan Sultan.
To make sure everyone’s prepared for the big game day on Sunday 18th March at Henson Park Marrickville, Western Walers captain, the award winning, Dan Sultan has recruited mates The Cruel Sea and The Ronson Hangup to fly the flag for the Western Walers high in a Rock For Reclink gig on the preceding Thursday.
The artists have donated their time to perform at Rock For Reclink in support of Reclink Australia, and its mission to provide sport and arts activities to enhance the lives of people experiencing disadvantage in Australia. Melbourne’s Community Cup for 2011 was the best ever – You Am I and Tumbleweed played to 12,000 people who all kicked in $120,000 toward this great charity.
