#BurnItDown is an independent event to fight cancer through music! All the proceeds from our concert events benefit the Marcelle Erian Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to financially and emotionally aiding people going through cancer treatments.



#BurnItDown fights cancer through music!  By spotlighting the independent music and art of the greater Los Angeles area, #BurnItDown creates a community celebration of life, healing, and overcoming obstacles.



To celebrate the community for helping her as she became cancer-free, Alex Nester hosts an annual benefit concert to share her music with you.  All of the proceeds from the concert are donated to cancer research and patient care! It's a night of music, fun, giveaways and celebrating our successes in the fight against cancer!


In 2011, Alex Nester and friends ROCKED a full crowd at the Troubadour in Hollywood, CA! Releasing her second album and celebrating her 10th anniversary of being cancer-free, 100% of the show's proceeds were donated to The American Cancer Society and the Marcelle Erian Foundation...


In 2013, #BurnItDown was bigger...better...HOTTER! With the help of Los Globos nightclub in Silverlake, #BiD was able to donate even more funds to the Marcelle Erian Cancer Foundation in support of its patients.


Come join us! Follow us on Twitter at @BurnItDown2017. All proceeds will be donated in honor of Ola Hudson.
