Cabinet of Wonders: A Benefit for the Children's Cancer Association's My Music Rx


Aladdin Theater (map) Southeast
Wed., Feb. 13, 8 p.m. 2013 21+


In these divisive times, there may be just one thing you and I and my grandpa can all agree on: cancer fucking sucks. At any time, but especially when a kid has it. Right? That's reason enough for this benefit version of Cabinet of Wonders, John Wesley Harding's celebrated series of variety shows. The lineups always tend toward the impeccable, and this one is no exception. The novelist Monica Drake will appear, as will recent Portland transplant K.D. Lang. Ben Gibbard, who has just released the first Postal Service song in 10 years, will be the only guest besides Harding (and comedian Eugene Mirman) who has to travel to get there. Questions remain: Will Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey play together or separately? Will Carrie Brownstein rock the roll or the humorous observations? Can we expect a Colin Meloy-Laura Veirs collaboration? Find out and fight cancer. REBECCA WILSON
