Time Out says

Nooky, Thundamentals and Hermitude headline a one-off musical fundraiser to support First Nations peoples impact by bushfires

All Australians have looked on in horror as the bushfire disaster has consumed our beautiful landscape, but for First Nations people, this devastation is even more traumatic, as sacred lands and places of major cultural significance have burnt to ash.

In recognition of the specific needs of First Nations peoples in the wake of the bushfire emergency, a collective of top Sydney’s musicians has come together to stage a fundraiser that both celebrates and supports contemporary Indigenous culture.

The top-shelf line-up features the talents of Nooky, Thundamentals, Hoodzy, Hermitude, Horrorshow, Rebecca Hatch, Joyride, Jazmine Nikitta and Kilmi, who together will be staging a musical spectacular with all proceeds going to the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities.

The fundraising gig was originally set to take place at Marrickville's Factory Theatre. However, due to overwhelming demand, the one-off performance on January 11 has now been moved to one of the city’s largest live music venues, the Enmore Theatre in Newtown. With tickets flying out of the box office, you’ll need to be quick to snag yours before they’re totally sold out.
