Be Loud! '17 

When: Aug. 25-26, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $25-$40

Since 2013, the benefit concert Be Loud! Sophie has convened at Cat's Cradle with a weekend of mostly bracing rock. This year is no different, with a lineup featuring jangle merchants Drivin N Cryin, who came of age alongside R.E.M. in the eighties, The Backsliders, Boom Unit Brass Band, and an all-star crew featuring several Triangle music scene vets, including members of Ben Folds Five and The Veldt. They'll play The Specials' seminal 1979 debut and other tracks that defined the socially conscious 2-Tone label's amalgam of ska, reggae, and punk anarchy. The spark and good vibes of the event reflect the spirit of the organization's namesake. As a teenage cancer patient in UNC Hospitals, Sophie Steiner recognized that teenagers need different support options than their younger peers and expressed a wish to create an organization that would provide services geared toward other young teens in her position. That group is going strong, and this is its biggest fundraiser of the year, so be present, and be loud. —David Klein
