Pop music night for mental health
NERVES and excitement are building in the lead-up to tomorrow night's inaugural Loose Lips Sink Ships event to be held at the Grafton Community Centre in honour of a young suicide victim.
Grafton/Coffs band Auribus have been confirmed as the second headliner for the evening with other local bands Liar Liar, Intermission and Just Our Luck also named.
The minimum age limit has been dropped from 15 to 14 to accommodate some initially disappointed youngsters.
Organisers wouldn't reveal exact figures but said ticket sales were going well and expected the event would sell out at the door tomorrow night.
Funds raised will go to mental health support group Grow, which meets regularly at the Grafton Community Centre.
