Melbourne’s Baseball To Bat Again
News posted Tuesday, May 10 2011 at 02:00 PM.
With members busy with side projects including High Tea, Cuba Is Japan, Pikelet, Love of Diagrams and Paul Kidney Experience, it’s safe to say a Baseball reunion hasn’t really been on the cards for a while. Until now.
The Melbourne four-piece will play their first show in three years next month. The occasion: a fundraiser for Japan earthquake victims at The Tote in their hometown on June 5. The band – Evelyn Morris aka Pikelet, Monika Fikerle, Ben Butcher and Cameron Potts – will play alongside the “effectively retired” Minimum Chips, as well as No Zu, Gosteleradio and Tailor Made for Small Rooms.
All money raised will be donated to the Red Cross Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal 2011, which is assisting people affected by the nine-magnitude earthquake and the devastating tsunami waves that hit north-east Japan in March.
Baseball’s most recent album, Animal Kingdom, was released in 2008. It was followed by extensive touring of Europe and Asia including dates in Russia.
Doors open at 4pm.
