“As many of you know, wildfires are still spreading through eastern Tennessee, a place that is dear to me… and home to so many families, small businesses, and wildlife. Yesterday I reached out to Benjamin Cannon and Spark Joy Music for help, and in true Cannon fashion, a venue and bands were booked within a few short hours. We’re still gathering information on the disaster and where the most help is needed, but 100% of the proceeds will being going to those impacted by these fires. Please join us at Musical Family Tree in Fountain Square on December 17th for a wonderful cause to raise funds for wildfire relief. There will be live music, drinks, a raffle, and stay tuned for more.” – Chris Burch, via Facebook
Indianapolis musicians have come together before to raise money for a good cause in times of crisis, but this benefit has developed with more speed and organization than I’ve seen, bringing together some big names in local alternative folk and rock for an all-ages show where all money raised will benefit the Tennessee fire victims.
The benefit will feature, among others still to be announced, Chris Burch, It’s Just Craig, Jeff Kelly and the Graveyard Shift, Bobbie Morrone Trio and the always incredible Coup D’etat, and will be hosted by MP Cavalier, Music Editor and Co-Host of the DoItIndy Radio Hour. For more information about the show, or for how you can donate items for a raffle which will take place at the event, feel free to check out their Facebook event page.
