Raise ‘Em Up

Saturday 25 January

The Tivoli, Fortitude Valley

Tickets: $50 – 200 (donate what you can)

Brisbane’s The Tivoli will host an all-star line-up including Megan Washington, Matt Corby, and The Kite String Tangle for Raise ‘Em Up benefit gig to raise $100,000 for Australian bushfire relief. Asha Jefferies, Ngaiire and The Riot are just some of the acts that will also donate their time for the worthy cause, which has destroyed more than 1500 homes and 10 million hectares of land to date.

The Tivoli’s Co-Owner and Creative Director Dave Sleswick announced all ticket, bar and merchandise profits from the evening will be shared between the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal (70%) and WIRES – The NSW Wildlife Information Rescue & Emergency Services (30%).

“Tickets will be available for purchase at 9am AEST on Thursday 9 January via Ticketmaster, with a range of ticket prices from $50-$200, allowing people to donate what they can,” Mr Sleswick said. “Both WIRES and the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal are hugely worthy causes and we hope that throwing this Raise ‘Em Up show provides people another way to support their critical work. In return, we promise a jam-packed evening of live music which will kick off from 5pm with food trucks, a car park party and a great community raffle also taking place.”
