On June 20, homegrown bands wyd:syd, Riot !n Magenta and The Voodoo Sound will play a benefit concert A Hundred Flowers alongside other local music acts. Taking place at Aliwal Arts Centre, the concert is an independent effort by organisers Cherie Tan and Sara-Ann Lin.
Despite a line up boasting both Baybeats alumni and newcomers, the pair are hoping to shine the spotlight on the earthquake victims instead.
“Every effort makes a huge difference, whether you’re attending the concert, lending the musicians your ears, or spreading the word,” says Tan.
Named after Nepal’s national anthem “Made of Hundreds of Flowers”, the concert will also feature psychedelic rockers BAKERS IN SPACE and pop outfit stillsunrise.
Not familiar with any of the acts from the line up? There will be a food and beverage stall set up by Satire Singapore. Or if you’re out of juice from rocking out.
If you have a passion for bolstering recovery efforts and assisting victims of the earthquakes (we sure hope you do) and love good music and food (of course you do), tickets are selling at $15 (pre-sale) and $18 (at the door) and are available for purchase at http://ahundredflowers.peatix.com. All proceeds go to relief efforts for victims of the Nepal earthquakes.
