‘Struggling Minds’ Charity Gig Showcases Brisbane’s Best Newcomers

Hey Brisbane fam, looking for something to do next Friday? Two local music journalists have come together to put on a charity gig for a cause well worth your attention: mental health awareness. Raising funds for the national organisation Grow in West End’s grooviest venue, The Bearded Lady, the inaugural Struggling Minds is set to be a mind-blowing party with a point.

Struggling Minds is headlined by the young singer-songwriter Asha Jefferies, who is still riding the wave of hype from her enchanting indie-folk single debut Honey, Save Me From My Falsehoods. After recently supporting Ella Hooper, she’s now hinting at her upcoming single Summer Solstice, so exciting is an understatement!

Alongside her are a string of local legends. The incredible Sunhaus, who appeared back in April with their uplifting yet melancholic debut single Realignment, two-time Queensland Music Award nominated Britpop rockers Winchester will also grace the stage with their infectious and upbeat indie sound, the vibrant pop-rock quartet OJ Mengel, who we named as one of Brisbane’s best young artists, and opening the event are the fascinating instrumental progressive-rock trio Signals.

The night is sponsored by the trend setting SWOP Clothing Exchange, who are graciously providing a whopping $100 gift voucher for the raffle on the night, so seriously what’s to lose? For only $10, it won’t burn a hole in your pocket, but it will do a lot of good!
