CW Stoneking plays Earth Hour at Melbourne Zoo

Canít think of anything to do when itís lights out for Earth Hour? While Monopoly over candlelight may be fun for the whole family, the Melbourne Zoo has a better idea! They are brand new participants in the worldwide Earth Hour 2009 event on Saturday 28th of March and are holding a live acoustic concert in the lush surrounds of the Zoo gardens and exotic animals with Melbourneís finest blues ní roots performers, C.W. Stoneking & The Primitive Horn Orchestra, Mamie Minch and Dirt River Radio.

Keeping in with the Earth Hour ethos, it will be lights out from 8:30-9:30pm and to make it an extra green event, a portion of the proceeds from the event will be put towards neutralising the carbon emissions produced by the concert.

YourGigs are giving you a chance to score one of five double passes to see CW Stoneking live at the Melbourne Zoo. Bring along your picnic hamper and participate in Earth Hour 2009 by having a relaxing summer evening chilling out to the sounds of CW Stoneking.
