The Dollar Bill Murrays Making Beer For Support Act
Taylor Furby | On 14, Dec 2017
The Dollar Bill Murrays have partnered with All Inn Brewing Co to create a beer and raise money for Support Act.
Support Act is a charity dedicated to helping people in the music industry. If you haven’t heard of them before, they were established in 1997 and have been helping artists with anything from paying rent to buying school uniforms. It’s well known that a steady income in the music industry is extremely rare so Support Act helps the musicians we love keep their head above water. The people in the music industry do so much for us and this organisation helps us give back.
“The creative rewards for musicians may be high, but, for most, income is not – with 80% of Australian musicians earning less than the minimum wage. This means saving for a rainy day is out of the question and making provision for ill health or old age almost impossible. We help by providing support through financial relief, advice and practical assistance, and we contribute to funeral costs.” Joanne Forman, Support Act spokesperson.
Brisbane’s Dollar Bill Murrays have had a huge year including tours, new music and signing with Valley Heat Records. To top that off, they’ve just announced collaboration with All Inn Brewing Co to create the Bill F. Murray Malt Liquor which is available at The End in West End. All proceeds from the beer will be donated to Support Act. “Support Act is always grateful for any community support and is glad to be the chosen charity for the funds raised by The Dollar Bill Murrays and All Inn Brewery Co’s live music launch.” Joanne Forman, Support Act spokesperson.
“The team at All Inn have been making great brews for years, so when they reached out to see if we were keen to guest brew a beer with them we jumped at the chance. Through their generosity, we feel privileged to be able to give back to the local and national music community we’re so proud to be a part of! We’ve all personally had friends go through some rough patches, and knowing Support Act is out there really means a lot – being able to do this through a tasty beer is the… well, froth on top!” say the band.
The official launch for Bill F. Murray Malt Liquor is tonight at The End. Obviously there’ll be live music, Soda Jerks are up first. Followed by an intimate set from the Dollar Bill Murrays. If you can’t make it tonight, you can still donate to Support Act here.
