Raise money for the crucial work of Domestic Abuse Intervention Services with help from four Madison bands. Info


Four local bands join up here to raise money for Domestic Abuse Intervention Services, a nonprofit that runs Dane County's one shelter for domestic violence victims, and provides all manner of other crucial resources and advocacy in the fight against abuse. Eccentric psych-rock outfit Novagolde starts off this show at The Workshop, an east-side building that has served as a studio and rehearsal space for various local bands over the years. Next up is Howler, the latest project from longtime Madison musician, activist, and filmmaker Wendy Schneider, which released its self-titled debut EP this summer. Souped-up R&B band The Flavor That Kills, which released an album called Nevermind The Acorns earlier this year, follows, and Ramones cover outfit Ramona closes out the show. Those who can't attend, or can but want to help out even more, can purchase a limited-edition event poster created by artist Samuel Johnson. —Scott Gordon
