Sri Lanka, Colombo: Tsunami Fundraising Rock Concert

There's going to be a massive rock concert held in Colombo, Sri Lanka to aid the Tasunami Relief operation by the TRF (Tsunami Relief Foundation). Timothy Seneviratne runs a fledgling film and TV production unit in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Caught up in the Boxing Day tsunami while holidaying in Unuwatuna near Galle, he nearly drowned in the first wave, yet survived to spend the next three days and months to follow caring its living victims and burying the dead. Following his ordeal during the tsunami, Seneviratne went on to establish with colleagues and friends, the Tsunami Relief Foundation. More info about the TRF can be found on their website and blog.

'Living on a prayer' - the rock concert will be held on Saturday the 19th of February at CR&FC at 8pm. Tickets are Rs 250/- (2.5 USD) & (1.35 GBP) and are available at the entrance. A number of bands will be perfoming that night, including Venom, Paranoid Earthling, Soul Skinner, Cancer and the Ill Noize crew.

Directions on getting to this tsunami fundraising concert from one of the organizers (Iromi) at TRF: "CR&FC is at London Place, also known as Malalasekera Mawatha. Its the first road on the left right after you pass the BMICH, going towards Thummula junction. Just keep coming down that road and the car park to CR&FC is on the first turning to right. Anyone will know CR&FC when u ask for it, though i'm sure the sound of rock music will be a better guide".

All proceeds are in aid of TRF (Tsunami Relief Foundation) so please pass the word around about the concert !!! And in Timothy's words "Do what you can because every little bit counts".

Tsunami Relief Foundation,
