Philosophy Presents: Camp Fire Relief Fundraiser

As part of continued MAD Monday series, we’re deviating from our local focus to provide support where its needed most in California right now.

With over 60 lives lost, 600 still missing, 142,000 acres burned and over 11,000 structures destroyed, we can think of few better causes to throw our weight behind.

The event will run from 3-9PM. We’ll have drink specials all night, along with live music courtesy of local singer/songwriter Sam Ravenna. The Truckee Fire Department will be here to provide wildfire emergency education, as well.

$10 donations will be taken at the door with 100% of the proceeds going directly to victims affected.

When he's not just holdin' it down for his people Funks brings an open-format approach to DJing digging' on electric soul, dirty bass, hip hop, house, funk and breaks from a wide variety of the illest producers, DJs, and live bands known to man.

Zack Teran Feat Tim Wendell

It has been five years since that fateful coffee shop encounter in Boulder, Colorado, where Tim Wendel and Zack Teran met and learned they had instant musical chemistry. After a recording session in the serenity of the Rocky Mountains, Tim’s soulful jazz guitar and Zack’s groove bass have since been married in synchronicity within a variety of contexts. If they aren’t playing ambient duo music in a Denver jazz club, they are cranking it up a notch in their full band jazz ensemble Aztec, while also often accompanying jazz giant Art Lande.

Singer/Song Writer Autumn Burnett

Singer/Song Writer Autumn Burnett

Autumn Burnett writes folk music that is dark, sweet, and dabbled with the unexpected. Her songs flash the lyrical wit of Joanna Newsom, mixed with the folkloric realness of Joni Mitchell, shot with a heavy dose of impressionist harmony. In addition to Mitchell and Newsom, Autumn Burnett draws influence from Big Thief, Ravel, and traditional music from the Americas and Eastern Europe. Her eclectic yet down-to-earth vibe makes sense, yet never stops asking questions. She is a graduate of Oberlin College and Conservatory, and recently spent a few years in Asheville NC, splitting the bill with bands including Window Cat, Ahleuchatistas, and Marian McLaughlin. She is now back in North Lake Tahoe, teaching music for a local non-profit, dabbling in the classical music world, and reestablishing herself as an artist in the place she calls home.
