Excellent Chicago bands and helping people. Both very, very good things on their own, but capable of producing extra mondo amounts of positive vibes when they come together under one roof. Such is sure to be the case this Thursday, December 1st at Lincoln Hall, when locally-based acts The Bright White, The Kickback, Blane Fonda, The Steepwater Band and Hawley Shoffner play a benefit concert called Warm, Safe and Sound to collect coats/sweaters for the city's homeless. You can get in for $5 if you bring a coat or sweater to donate ($10 without), and all clothing collected will be given to Cornerstone Community Outreach who will distribute them to those in need.
The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are available here. Below is the schedule for the evening. This one should be well worth checking out, for the music as well as the cause.
7-7:30 PM - Hawley Shoffner
