Charity concert

Dunedin music fans will be able to swap food for music next week.

Entry to a fundraising concert for the Dunedin Combined Foodbank on Tuesday is by food or cash donation.

The charity concert features Martin Phillipps of the Chills, Two Cartoons and Queenstown artist Katie Raven.

"I've been in the situation myself, over the last decade, where you realise how important these back-up services are," Phillipps said yesterday. "They're pretty strapped for cash at the moment, under this National Government, so we're happy to help out."

The concert at ReFuel starts at 8pm and would showcase the classic "Dunedin Sound" and original, new music coming out of Otago, he said. All proceeds would go to the Dunedin Combined Foodbank.

"We're very appreciative that they're thinking of others through us," Salvation Army Dunedin community ministries manager Major Mick Marshall said yesterday.
