Team Leadfinger – Melbourne Branch are stoked to announce that with the assistance of the Tote Hotel that we are hosting (See You Tonight – A benefit gig for Stewy Leadfinger Cunningham). This will be one heck of a night to remember with some of Melbourne)s finest musicians coming together to celebrate the man and the music that is Stewy Leadfinger Cunningham.

Stewart was diagnosed with lung cancer in early June. He is currently receiving treatment in dealing with this insidious disease. Stewy has been a stalwart of the Australian underground music scene for the last three decades in bands such as the Proton Energy Pills, Brother Brick, The Yes Men, Asteroid B-612, Challenger 7 and for the last 12 years, Leadfinger. Stew)s approach to rock n) roll has won him many fans here and overseas and provided what many pundits attest to being some of the greatest rock tunes to come from Down Under. Songs such as (See You Tonight), (Rock n) Roll Sound), (Fourteen), (Edge a Bit Closer) and (Chokito Bar), may not be chart toppers, but they hold up their own compared to the greats.
