This seven-band fundraiser show for Planned Parenthood boasts a killer variety of local music, with arts and crafts for sale for the cause as well. Madison's music community needs more genre-colliding events like this. The highlights range from Olyvia Jaxyn, who used their aching baritone to create ethereal but accessible pop on the 2017 EP Lyv, to Ruin Dweller, a full-on filthy death-metal band featuring members of Dosmalés and Jex Thoth. The latter's debut EP, Cryptic Ruin, made Tone Madison's top 20 Madison records of 2018 list. Clean Room, Darker N' Darker, and Bashford give the bill a heavy emphasis on fun, grimy rock 'n' roll, but there are further curveballs in store, thanks to the eccentric electronic pop of Tippy and the wide-ranging psychedelic folk of Gods In The Chrysalis. If you're still in town for one pre-Christmastime show, make it this one. —Scott Gordon
