Lincoln Hall to host 12/23 benefit concert for Chicago women's shelter

The Maybenauts

On Wednesday, December 23, various Chicago-based female musicians will join forces to rock Lincoln Hall for an extremely good cause. As part of "Covers to Cover II" - which follows up a 2006 benefit show that raised $1,500.00 for the woman's homeless shelter Deborah's Place - members from bands including The Dials, The Maybenauts, The Mekons and more will perform to raise money for the CAWC Greenhouse Shelter for abused women and their children.

Members from these bands will play as specially-formed, one-time-only acts to pay tribute to their favorite musicians, from David Bowie to The Breeders to The Cars. As if that didn't sound like enough fun, acting as MC for the night will be none other than Rattina, the female rat puppet from the “Chic-A-Go-Go!” TV show.

Here's the full schedule of bands set to play the show:

8 PM-8:20 PM - Yoko Noge plays Shippie Wallace
8:30 PM-8:50 PM - IRIS plays The Breeders
9 PM-9:20 PM - Sally Timms plays Nico from The Velvet Underground
9:30 PM-9:50 PM - The Maybenauts play David Bowie
