On August 3rd 2019 The Celibate Rifles lost their beloved frontman and friend Damien Lovelock.
To commemorate his passing and to celebrate his (musical) life The Rifles – alongside Damo’s cover band project The Centrerlink Surfers – will pay tribute to Damien by covering his musical career from But Jacques The Fish to Wigworld via a selection of Damo’s jukebox faves and more.
Mega-Rifles fan and Dead Kennedy’s frontman Jello Biafra will also join the tribute with a one-off Sydney live performance lending his vocal to a series of Rifles tunes with added MC and DJ duties.
ABC journalist heads Steve Cannane will also head a list of those providing testimonials while celebrated surf-film maker Jack McCoy will provide the visuals.
It’s a one-off, never-to-be-repeated event – just like the man himself!
Come and celebrate the life of a unique individual: Damien Lovelock. Sunday 22nd September, The Factory Theatre Marrickville 4.00pm – 8.00pm.
