Benefit for Joel Burrows

Yes, you know many of those illustrious names above. The name you need to know, though, is Joel Burrows: He's is a longtime fixture in the Portland music scene, having played in countless bands, and last year he was hit by a van and suffered a serious head injury; he still requires ongoing medical attention. Janet Weiss (of Wild Flag and Quasi) has put together an astonishing bill of local talent to raise funds for a wheelchair insert that Burrows requires. The super-limited tickets to the event are already sold out, which is hardly surprising, but you can still help Burrows by donating to the Paypal fund at joelburrowsfund@gmail.com—and I suppose you can lurk around the alleyway on SW Ankeny for a glimpse of stars like Spoon's Britt Daniel and Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock playing an incredibly intimate show. Donate, though—that's far more important. NED LANNAMANN
