Top musos band together for homelessness More than 20 of the capital’s top musicians are coming together this Sunday for the fourth annual benefit concert for DCM (formerly known as Downtown Community Ministry). This year the concert format has been expanded into a daylong festival, taking place at San Fran, Cuba Street. The event gathers together some of the region’s best musicians to raise funds for, and awareness of the DCM and the fine people who work there. Event organiser Rob Joass, who is also performing with the Small Mercies, says Christmas is a hard time for many in the city. “This is an excellent way to not only raise money to help the DCM through this period, but to also show our appreciation to the staff at DCM for all that they do for those who need a helping hand.” Musicians coming out to support DCM this year include Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band, Kim and
Dusty, The Rag Poets, The Rumble and Darren Watson. The big drawcard will be an all-star party set featuring performances by local Barnaby Weir as well as The Tempests and guests from earlier in the day. It will be the third time Barnaby, famous for singing in the Black Seeds and Fly My Pretties, will participate in the concert. “Rob got in touch with me and I thought it was a great cause,” he says. “I was impressed with what [DCM] did. I wasn’t aware of the work they were doing at the time, but I was aware of homelessness, especially in Wellington.” Barnaby says next to raising funds, the concert was more about how people talk about homelessness, an issue that’s more complex than just beggars. “It’s bigger than most people would think. We want to use music to bring awareness of the stigma of being homeless.” The songs he will bring to the

concert will be a mix of solo and collaborations with Fly My Pretties but as to what exactly he’ll play “you’ll have to come
along to find out” . The event promises to be a long one, with doors opening at 2pm and not closing until 9.30pm.
Entry is by koha with a suggested minimum donation of $20. Under 18s are welcome with a parent or guardian.
