In benefits 

Unfortunately, the anniversary party for alt-country bible No Depression that was to take place at The Brewery this Monday, Sept. 10, is now off. No Depression co-editor Peter Blackstock was informed that the party's headliner, Billy Joe Shaver, has had to cancel his entire Southeastern tour: He suffered a heart attack and had to undergo quadruple-bypass surgery last week. Shades of N.C. producer Don Dixon, who had an emergency bypass earlier this summer. There's a benefit for Dixon, who didn't have health insurance, this Saturday, Sept. 8, at The Brewery in Raleigh. Call 834-1718 for details. --Angie Carlson
