On Thursday, October 4, Galactic and The Soul Rebels will perform at Tipitina’s in a benefit show for victims of Hurricane Florence, a category four hurricane that hit North Carolina and the east coast in September. The storm caused upwards of $38 billion in damage according to the National Weather Service.
Ticket sales will benefit The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI), a North Carolina-based group that, according to their website, “believes in order to ensure a safe, adequate supply of healthy food, we must protect farm workers and encourage environmentally sound farming. We see environmental sustainability, economic viability, biodiversity, and social justice as inextricably linked. Therefore, the best way to ensure a just, sustainable future for farming is to create a reality where farmers feel supported and protected and have the resources to thrive.”
Doors are at 7 PM and the show is for 8. Tickets cost $20-$25.
