Protect NC Families Benefit with Mac McCaughan, John Darnielle, Greg Cartwright, Tara DeFrancisco (Showroom) 

When: Thu., April 19, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $20, $100 VIP

Essentially, this is North Carolina indie rock-nerd fantasy night: Superchunk/ Portastatic/ Merge Records guy Mac McCaughan joins his labelmate, the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle, for a night of solo sets and requests, all in favor of raising money to fight back a senseless state amendment. Both are not only legendary frontman but great one-versus-a-crowd performers, too, singing their songs as if they're still trying to sing over a flailing rock band. As if you needed any other reason, Greg Cartwright—yes, of The Reigning Sound and the Oblivians—makes a trip east to go solo, too. Also, Tara DeFrancisco. Tickets are $20, though the $100 VIP price earns you a song request credit. Burn it wisely. —Grayson Currin
