Mindil Beach Markets perform at Layback Lounge Friday

Mindil Beach Markets at Layback Lounge

Group tours with music, and an educational purpose

Victoria’s Mindil Beach Markets are coming to the Layback Lounge in Harrison Hot Springs tonight (Friday, Aug. 9). Though their music is laced with elements of funk, hip-hop and reggae, at the heart of this heterogeneity is a true passion for rock and roll.

The band is touring their latest record, It Might Take Long, and this fall they’ll be heading out on their third trip across Canada. In between their regular tour dates, MBM will be taking their environmental initiative, The Jellyfish Project, to Canadian middle and high schools.

The Jellyfish Project is offered free of charge and consists of a live performance by the band followed by a presentation on the declining health of our world’s oceans. Topics include overfishing, plastic pollution and sustainable solutions. To date, MBM have presented to over 13,000 students. Tonight’s show starts at 10 p.m.
