Jackson Browne headlined a surfer’s benefit for survivors of the Chilean earthquake at Brushfire Records’ studios in Los Angeles last week.

The singer joined musicians such as Jon Swift, White Buffalo, Andrew Bird and LA-based band Dawes at the gig to benefit Save the Waves, an environmental coalition – dedicated to preserving the world’s surf spots and their surrounding environments – that is heavily involved in relief efforts following last month’s earthquake.

The evening featured acoustic and electric sets, as well as an auction that featured items donated by Jack Johnson, Kelly Slater and many more.

“This event for Chile is in the true sprit of the Americas, both North and South America, and the spirit of responding immediately, and in the spirit of love and community,” said Jackson Browne, with over $10,000 raised on the night. The money will go towards rebuilding and helping the communities of Pichilemu, Cobquecura, Constitucion and Curanipe. Funds will be used to help in beach clean ups following the tsunami, equipment for fishermen (who lost their livelihoods in the disaster) and planting of new educational organic gardens in schools.

Save The Waves is currently looking for volunteers to go to Chile. Visit their website to find out more.
