Yours and Owls cafe in the heart of Wollongong has put out a call to Illawarra musicians and music lovers to band together to support founder Ben Tillman.
A few weeks ago, Ben was badly injured in a car accident which has caused some damage to his spine.
While he is recovering from this injury with some physiotherapy work, his loyal team at Yours and Owls has decided to put on a show to help raise funds for medical bills and show Ben how much people care about him.
Having founded the Yours and Owls cafe just over two years ago, Ben and his team have since been on a mission to put Wollongong on the map for live local music in Australia.
International, national and Illawarra bands alike have been performing at this Wollongong venue almost every night of the week for the past few years.
Now it is our turn to return the favour and show our support for this awesome venue and its founder.
More recently, the Yours and Owls crew have acquired the Wollongong Town Hall as a venue for their larger shows, which is where the benefit night will be held.
The show is called The Owl Party and will host some of the region's finest original bands.
The show will be on Saturday, January 19, at 6pm with pre-sale tickets available for $20.
I encourage anyone and everyone to get to this show to enjoy some local music in Ben's honour.
