It’s covered in this week’s Sound Circuit but bears repeating: If you can make it down to Wooly’s this Friday, even for a moment, do so. Dawn of Destruction vocalist Matt Nyberg has put a lot of time and sweat into the local music scene, and this is the chance for the capital city’s music lovers to give a little back and help out a family in need. Admission to the “Rally Round the Family” benefit is just $5, but donations of any amount are accepted and welcome. Alternately, a gofundme campaign has been started to help cover some of the huge expenses tied to Nicole’s medical treatment. Donations can be made at www.gofundme.com/keepnicolealive.
This week’s Pick o’ the Week is at Gas Lamp on Friday, Jan. 16, where you can catch Minnesota-based singer songwriter Jillian Rae, with our own Patresa Hartman opening. Admission is $5 at the door, and the show starts at 9 p.m. Mahalo.
