Kyle Morton, lead singer and guitarist of the band Typhoon, will perform at a special benefit concert to celebrate and support Housing Resources Bainbridge on Saturday, Aug. 24.

Proceeds will help Housing Resources Bainbridge in its fundraising effort to raise money to buy the 550 Madison Apartments, one of the few apartment buildings on Bainbridge with rents for lower-income families.

The concert starts at 6:30 p.m. and will take place at Hazel Creek, 8903 NE Koura Road. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased at Typhoon.brownpapertickets.com. Tickets are discounted for children ages 12 through 17, and are free for ages 11 and under.

Typhoon is an 11-member American indie rock band from Salem, Oregon that is signed to the indie record label Roll Call Records. The band’s latest album, “Offerings,” was released in January 2018. To learn more about Typhoon, go to WeAreTyphoon.com.

Event organizers say the show features the elaborate compositions of Typhoon and Morton’s spare solo work, adapted to the elegant form of a power trio. Alex Fitch, the longtime drummer of Typhoon, will join with Mortan and Max Stein on bass for an intimate concert.

All net proceeds from the concert will be donated to Housing Resources Bainbridge, whose mission is to preserve the diversity and vitality of Bainbridge Island by providing and maintaining affordable housing opportunities in the community. The concert is hosted by the Matthew Tirman Exploratory Committee and MalaguenÞa Events, and organizers note the music will appeal to both young and old.

“Support for affordable housing is especially crucial right now as one of the few affordable housing units at 550 Madison is for sale by Housing Kitsap,” said Erin Phillips of MalaguenÞa Events. “Housing Resources Bainbridge is working with a local developer to purchase the property and redevelop it into a mixed income community that will replace the affordable units there now. This benefit concert will bring visibility to the important issue of housing affordability.

Tirman, a councilman who also serves as deputy mayor of Bainbridge Island, said, “Housing Resources Bainbridge is a vital part of our community. They need our support through this challenge so they can continue to provide affordable housing opportunities in our community.”

“This benefit concert provides an opportunity for our community to come together, enjoying a night of beautiful music at the same time as we help protect affordable housing on Bainbridge Island,” Tirman added. “I encourage everyone who is able, to purchase tickets to this event.”
