Tiaga Sound & Lighting and The Wild Buffalo PRESENT:
MAKE IT RAIN – A Benefit For The Bushfires In Australia

For more than four months, Australia has been engulfed by the worst wildfires it has seen in decades. More than 100 fires have ravaged widespread areas around the continent. Currently, more than 1.25 billion animals have perished, over 20 million hectares of land has burned, nearly 30 people have lost their lives and more than 2000 homes have been destroyed.

The hellacious fires continue to wreak havoc across the down-under. Thousands of volunteers are fighting these fires side by side
with professional fire fighters from Australia, The United States, Canada and New Zealand. With no clear end in sight, these numbers are expected to rise exponentially. The devastation is not confined to the continent as the fires are creating unprecedented ecological conditions which have global affects. We are witnessing a mass extinction of several animal populations and their habitats, and we feel called to help.

The purpose of this event is to create an outlet for our community to collectively support the ongoing efforts to combat these deadly, destructive fires in Australia. All artists, production, visuals and the venue have graciously donated their time and energy to create a container in support of this cause.

In addition to a night of music, a silent auction will also take place with donated goods including : festival tickets, fine dining experiences, massage certificates, glass, fine art and much more!

All proceeds from ticket sales and auction items will go directly to the Australia Wildfire Fund which provides immediate support in: assisting firefighting efforts, supporting affected communities, rescuing and recovering wildlife and implementing long-term solutions to restore and repopulate unique ecosystems destroyed by the wildfires.

Auditory Experiences Donated by :

Duffrey (Denver, CO)

Duffrey is an eclectronic music producer with an insatiable hunger for brain tickling soundscapes and squelchy bass. Woody Klann, a musician from a young age, has been squeezing sounds from his environment since he can remember. He combines an undeniable groove, rich instrumentation, and complex sonic exploration to transport the listener on a funky intergalactic journey.
Utilizing a fusion of the chilled out, hazy influence from the Northwest corner of the US and the lush vibrant inspiration of Northern California, Woody has defined an entirely new sonic vocabulary. He experiments with many genres including Midtempo, Dub, Four on the Floor, and Drum and Bass and the result is comparable to an omnitempo psychedelic space safari. He’s known for converting brainwaves into tangible vibration that takes control of your body and leaves you tingling.
