Those of you who came along to the Open Garden back in April would remember the wonderful music we were privileged to have entertain us over the weekend. One of the entertainers, Eunice Rogers, wanted to let you know about another fund-raising gig they have coming up next week – see info below:
Fund Raising Gig at The Jade.
Nine-year-old-Pt Augusta boy Colwyn Wilton was born with a rare metabolic condition which affects the way his body breaks down sugar. He is the only known living Aboriginal person with MPS 6. Complications include airway obstruction, organ enlargement and skeletal deformity, all of which affect his mobility. There’s no cure for this condition.
Although he travelled to Sydney in April this year with his family to undergo bone marrow transplant, he needs ongoing care.
The family urgently needs money to pay for repairs to their car, because at the moment they are having to travel regularly to and from Adelaide by bus for treatment.
Riva (Eunice) Rodgers and Friends are holding a fund-raising gig at The Jade.
When: Thurs 31st August Where: The Jade 142 – 160 Flinders St Adelaide
Time: 7- 10 p.m. (doors open 6.30)
Tickets: $15/$12 at the door
The Performers: Riva Rodgers and Dave Black, Henk Groot & Friends, and others still to be announced.
It’s going to be a great night – we’d love to see you there

Adapted from Craig Silvey’s bestselling Australian novel and featuring a stellar cast including Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller, Angourie Rice, Dan Wyllie and Aaron McGrath, JASPER JONES is the story of Charlie Bucktin, a bookish boy of 14 living in a small town in Western Australia.
In the dead of night during the scorching summer of 1969, Charlie is startled when he is woken by local mixed-race outcast Jasper Jones outside his window. Jasper leads him deep into the forest and shows him something that will change his life forever, setting them both on a dangerous journey to solve a mystery that will consume the entire community.
In an isolated town where secrecy, gossip and tragedy overwhelm the landscape, Charlie faces family breakdown, finds his first love, and discovers what it means be truly courageous.

i want to go home,
but home is the mouth of a shark
home is the barrel of the gun
and no one would leave home
unless home chased you to the shore
unless home told you
to quicken your legs
leave your clothes behind
crawl through the desert
wade through the oceans
your survival is more important
no one leaves home until home is a sweaty voice in your ear
run away from me now
i don’t know what i’ve become
but i know that anywhere
is safer than here
