Towers and Trees headlines WINtober

Indie folk band brings its show to Canoe Pub tomorrow night (Oct. 19) for Women in Need

Indie folk rockers Towers and Trees.

Local indie folk band Towers and Trees brings its show to Canoe Pub tomorrow night (Oct. 19), headlining a fundraising dinner for Women in Need.

Members of the six-piece group will perform serenade-style during dinner from 7 to 9 p.m., then hit the stage, along with Electric Timber Company at 9:30 en masse to play a full-scale rock show until midnight.

The event, entitled Team YYJ Sings to WIN, is part of a greater fundraising effort by Towers and Trees called WINtober, in which all proceeds from its various musical activities and online sales this month go toward the charity organization.

“At the core of any strong, vibrant community are women who are honoured and valued,” said the band’s frontman and songwriter Adrian Chalifour. “What we love about WIN and why we chose to partner with them is a lot of their programs work on a micro, or personal level, to help women achieve independence and empower them.”

Also joining Towers and Trees members in performing are soul artist Scotty Hills and Vancouver Island Music Award winner Annie Becker. The dinner includes a three-course meal featuring locally sourced ingredients and created by Canoe chef Gabe Milne. Tickets are $100 for the dinner and show, or $20 for the concert alone. Tickets were going fast at press time. Visit brownpapertickets.com/event/477019 to purchase online.

Towers and Trees is also in the final stage of the music development competition Peak Performance Project.

Online voting to help choose the winners for 2013 begins today (Oct. 18) at peakperformanceproject.com.
