With Christmas drawing near, organisers at SQ Entertainment have taken the opportunity this festive season to raise funds for victims of  Typhoon Haiyan with their upcoming Charity Concert.

Hosted on December 18 at the University of Melbourne Elizabeth Murdoch Theatre A, the concert ensures all proceeds will be donated to the Philippines Red Cross to help relief programs remedying the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.

The appeal promises a fun filled night of K-Pop dances, musical performances and numerous prizes to be won.

With more acts to be announced, find below a list of highlights for the evening.

Soul and funk singer/songwriter/producer Dru Chen will be performing numbers from his 2013 EP, Intensions, as well as other tracks from previous years that saw him collaborate with the likes of Charlie Lim.

There’s no doubting that the multi-instrumental talent will perform an engaging and diverse show, drawing from his upbringing in both Singapore and Melbourne.

Dru Chen has taken time out of his 2013 tour of Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines to bring his unique pop sounds to the appeal. Find out just why dynamic artists he was chosen to perform at festivals alongside artists such as Joss Stone and Grizzly Bear.

The Story Model

The four talented musicians (who label themselves as pilots, engineers, astronauts and scientists) that compose the alternative pop rock band The Story Model will also be performing on the night.

Deriving their sound from the likes of The Black Keys and Matt Corby, the band describes their journey as one beyond the stars to a place where melody is produced.

Kamikaze Mugen

Kamikaze Mugen (KM) is a dance group filled with close friends and a passion for performance.

Established in 2011, KM was initially a temporary group that has now become a permanent fixture on the dance scene. Although their line-up of current members aren’t all the originals, their aim remains the same. KM strives to self-teach existing K-Pop choreography as well as establish original works.

KM will be performing on the night. Check out some of their work on their YouTube channel.

SQ Entertainment has done all the work and navigated the Melbourne music and performing arts scene to bring you some of the most unique work that is around. All you have to do is turn up and have a brilliant night while raising funds for charity (you may even win some prizes!) Tickets are $10 and can be found at Try Booking.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
