The 2 Rivers Remix Society is presenting a livestreaming fundraising concert this Saturday (August 7) from 2 to 8 p.m.
Titled We Are Still Here!, the event will feature hip-hop, rock, Indigi-funk, blues, folk, and reggae music, and will support evacuees from the devastating Lytton/‘Q‘emcin Fire that destroyed 95 percent of central Lytton.
Hosted by Governor General's Award-winning Nlaka’pamux playwright Kevin Loring, the concert will feature headliners Ritchie and the Fendermen, along with Gerald Charlie and Black Owl Blues Band, JB the First Lady, Butterflies in Spirit, the Melawmen Collective, Spiritual Warriors, Curtis Clearsky & the Constellationz, Keliya, Madelaine McCallum, Gordon Dick Sr., and Herman Dan.
Donations can be made here to an ongoing GoFundMe team effort by Savage Society and 2RMX, two Indigenous NGOs with deep roots in the Nlaka’pamux/Lytton community. Proceeds will enable the Nlaka’pamux/Lytton evacuees to gather in-person for a day of healing musical medicine in Vedder Park (Chilliwack).
