We may seem far removed from the devastating bushfires experienced throughout much of the Eastern and Southern states of Australia over the recent months, but that doesn't mean Territorians don't want to offer a hand in any way we can!
Several bushfire benefit gigs are happening around the Northern Territory over the coming weeks, show your support and help raise some much-needed funds by joining us at some (or all!) of them.
Well done to everyone involved in pulling these benefits together, we love seeing the music community coming together to support those affected by the fires.
Thursday 23 January
In addition to an great line-up of performances there will also be drink specials, raffles and more, with all money raised donated equally between Vinnies Australia & Wise.
