Glen Terry (blog post) and Jerome Speldewinde (photos) are in town, and always put on a great show. They’re doing a concert tonight (Monday, 8PM) at Barefoot, and proceeds go to ACT Lanka. Which is a citizens group that has and continues to help people affected by war. Glen and Jerome are, if you’re unfamiliar great Sri Lankan entertainers now based in Australia. They’re not in town much and it’s always fun when they are. I saw them last Saturday at the DBU for example, and all the Burgher ladies were going crazy.
Barefoot is another good venue and since, as mentioned, the two are entertainers, I think people will dance and it will be fun at all. Also, the gate of Rs. 500 goes towards ACT’s ongoing work helping people affected by war. Anyone following this blog saw how I worked with them as they were supplying urgent medical relief right at the end of the war. That work has been ongoing, plus drama and sports and arts workshops and general showing up and being there. ACT is interesting cause it’s a citizens group with basically no salary or overheads, it just formed in response to a national crisis and helps on a very person to person level.
But I digress. More than anything it’ll be a great show, for a good cause. I recommend.
