Join us for an amazing night of music as a benefit for the Unist'ot'en Camp.
Stop the Pipelines. Start the Music.
Thursday, March 16th, 7pm-10pm
Proceeds to the Unist'ot'en Camp
On Thursday, March 16th, please join us at Alix Goolden Hall (907 Pandora) for an Unist'ot'en Camp benefit concert. Doors open at 7PM, event begins at 7:30, and runs until 10PM.
Tickets are by donation, from $15-$20 (No one turned away for lack of funds), and can be purchased at the door or in advance - online at https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1442697 or in person at Wildfire Bakery or Camas Books.
The event will begin with a welcoming from Esquimalt and Songhees First Nation representatives, and a presentation from the Unist'ot'en hereditary Chiefs, including the Camp spokesperson, Freda Huson. We will then start the music and enjoy performances by Natu Bearwolf, Betty Supple, Zoubi Arros, Rae Spoon and Compassion Gorilla.
We would like to acknowledge the time that many people in our community are donating to put on this event - from postering and hosting to playing music and raising funds - and would humbly request your help in spreading the word about this benefit concert. It would be thrilling to us to pack Alix Goolden Hall and show the Unist'ot'en that people here support their courageous and important resistance to pipelines crossing their territories. Thank you!

HELP SHARE THE EVENT ON FACEBOOK Compassion Gorilla has a relentless drive to translate earthy and folkloric sounds into an explosive performance fit for the demands of the modern dancefloor. Rae Spoon is an award-winning Canadian musician, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and author. Zoubi's folk sounds weave a cloth that Hannah Georgas may have crafted in the 1950's. Her authenticity enchants and leads listeners through a whirlwind of emotional connection seated in folk-pop tunes. Betty is a songwriter and performer who plays half-time, hip hop inspired mandolin, rich, raw keys and some folk, jazz guitar with beat box vocalizations, as a solo musician or inside one of her collaborative projects.
