“Canberra Cares” free concert
Sat 14th Feb 12pm – 2pm, Garema Place

Fundraiser for the Victorian Bushfire Relief fund, organised by 666.

If you can’t be there in person, you can listen on 666 ABC AM radio.

If you aren’t near a radio, but have the internet, http://www.abc.net.au/canberra

There is a singalong component near the end. If you are a singer or can at least hold a note (maybe two, possibly three), you’ll probably feel like joining in.

Queries and stuff: I’ll be at the Rotunda in Glebe Park this morning at about 11am and then hovering around Chicken Gourmet for most of the concert. Look for the portly chap with the bald patch who looks like he’s not sure if he’s dressed for a business meeting or the folk festival.
