When: Fri., May 22 2015
punk, alt, grunge, rock, 7 p.m.
After a close friend lost her four year-long battle with scleroderma two years ago, Steven Schaab decided to call on a few local friends and organize an event in her honor. This Thursday is the second Benefit for Scleroderma in memory of Amanda Hogsett, held annually on her birthday. Kicking off the event, garage-rock one-man-band Scott Dence of Dumb Doctors will perform, followed by punk cover band, Wiggly Piggly. The female-fronted alt-grunge act Dirty Circus goes on at 9 p.m., followed by local punk bands Lost at Sea at 10 p.m., and First World Problem at 11 p.m. The Autobahn food truck will be on hand for the hungry, and drink specials like $2 PBRs will satisfy the broke and thirsty. All funds raised at the door will go directly to the Scleroderma Foundation to help find a cure for the rare and deadly disorder. —Kelly Rae Smith FRIDAY
