In light of the bushfire crisis sweeping the country, Adelaide’s music and arts community has sprung into action. Richmond cafe Karma & Crow, live-music venue Lion Arts Factory (formerly Fowler’s Live) and local rock outfit Bad Dreems are hosting a relief concert to raise much-needed funds.
All proceeds from the event will go to the CFS Foundation; Blaze Aid, a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters; and SAVEM, which is helping manage the wildlife rescue effort.
The artists involved are all donating their time (and talents) for a good cause. On the line-up: Bad Dreems, psychedelic Perth outfit Pond, local garage rockers West Thebarton, alternative-metal band The Mark of Cain, Melbourne’s recently reformed Children Collide, plus Tim Rogers, Horror My Friend, Hayley Mary and more. They’ll perform on the Lion Arts Factory stage and in its outdoor courtyard.
Profits from food, drink and art sales will also go towards bushfire relief. There’ll be beer from Pirate Life, Mismatch and Coopers, and wine from Geoff Merrill.
Tickets go on sale on Friday January 10 at 9am.
