We’ve written before about the fire at the Maranui Surf Cafe, and how bloody sad that was, but it’s kind of bloody lovely to see the way that this city can be all small-town-like and good-hearted, with yet more events planned to raise money for the cause.

Shipwrecked! Maranui Staff Benefit Concert Party is happening this Saturday September 5 at the Tug Boat, and $20 will get you in to see the Eggs, Lonesome Cowboy and other bands, as well as chances to win prizes from Madame Fancy Pants, Real Surf and Joug Design

And if that’s not quite enough partying for you, there’s also the afterparty at SFBH where koha on the door will get you a free shot.
