Joel Plaskett auctions two tickets to sold out fundraiser in support of The Khyber Building Fund

Friends of the Khyber, along with Joel Plaskett and The Emergency, are auctioning two tickets to the highly-anticipated sold-out Shore Club show, taking place September 4th in Hubbards, Nova Scotia. All proceeds from the auctioned tickets, along with two “I met my love down at the Khyber” sweatshirts, will be donated to the Khyber Building Fund, a cause Plaskett (a member of Friends of The Khyber) has been advocating for since last summer when it was recommended that the building be put on the city’s surplus list and sold. The auction will take place on eBay and bidding will start at $250.
