Baka Beyond, an Afro-Celtic band, performs the third annual Rain Dance benefit tonight in Ashland.

It begins at 7 p.m. at Britt Ballroom, Southern Oregon University, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd.

There’s an angle here beyond the music: The event is being offered in conjunction with Save the Rain, an organization that aims to provide clean water to people worldwide. The evening will include a Save the Rain slide show, a silent auction and a chance to win a hybrid car.

Tickets are $15, $5 for SOU students, and are available at Ashland Outdoor Store, SOU’s Raider Aid, Ashland; and Larry’s Music, Medford.
