Event description

Description

By all accounts Andy Irons was the kind of person that would go out of his way to be there for his fans. It was fitting that he was dubbed ‘The People’s Champ’. However behind the smile he wrestled mental health issues and drug addiction. His inner circle knew about it and rumours swirled, but it was never openly reported in the media until his death.

Andy Irons - Kiss By God is a film about bipolar disorder and opioid addiction as seen through the life of this three-time world champion surfer. He was the pride of Hawaii and revered around the world for his spectacular rise to fame and success. However, many were unaware of his internal battles that led to his demise. Andy struggled with the same demons that millions of people worldwide battle with daily.

As the opioid crisis grows around the world, and the stigma of mental health issues is more frequently addressed, the untold story of Andy’s life serves to tear down the myths associated with these two ferocious diseases.

LIVE MUSIC - Kym Staton


Kym Staton has been serenading audiences in cafes, bars, pubs and other small venues as a singer/songwriter since 2012 and has performed more than three-hundred gigs at intimate venues around Sydney and Melbourne - including Bar 303, The Factory Theatre, The Newsagency, Newtown Social Club, Dome Bar, The White Horse, Broadway Lounge, Govindas Movie Room, Loop Project Space and countless other intimate venues, honing his skills and stagecraft.

He has a unique sound both exotic and earthy, and a wide and eclectic repertoire of blues, jazz and folk covers, weird old songs and unusual originals. His rare rock tenor voice goes from subtle to soaring in a heartbeat, and the exquisite interplay of his captivating vocals and a deft touch on his telecaster and acoustic guitar must to be heard to be believed.

Check out some of Kym's music on his youtube channel:

Kym Staton is currently preparing to record his live cafe album later this year, which will document his past five years of intimate live performances and expansive repertoire.
