Silver Lining For Young Rockers



Who: Immune, Hot Lies, Cadence, Dirty Pink Jeans, 1/2 Shot and Draw The Line
Where: Newcastle Leagues Club
When: Saturday May 14, 2005

YOUNG rock outfit Immune is following in the footsteps of fellow Novocastrians Silverchair after taking out a major award at this year's Youth Rock competition.

Immune took out the coveted Silverchair Songwriting Award and also placed second in the overall competition.

More than 100 bands from high schools around the state entered the competition but only 11 went through to the grand final, held at Bankstown Entertainment Centre last month.

Silverchair memorably placed first at the event in 1994.

Immune walked away with a host of prizes including musical equipment, recording time, rehearsal studio time and music business management advice from a leading agency.

These prizes will allow Immune to finish recording their CD which they will continue to work on this month in the hope of releasing it by July.

It is not the first time Immune has walked away successful from Youth Rock.

Last year the band took out Youth Rock's Encouragement Award only 12 months after the group was formed by members Elliott Lewis (lead vocals, guitar), Matt Walker (bass), Cameron Overend (drums) and James Overend (guitar).

Immune also racked up a win at home in Newcastle when it took out the inaugural Let There Be School Rock band competition which was held in conjunction with Newcastle Music Week. Catch Immune performing an all- ages show at The Bandroom @ Newcastle Leagues Club with the Hot Lies, Cadence, Dirty Pink Jeans, 1/2 Shot and Draw The Line on Saturday.
