Live Around Town This Week, Part 2

As we mentioned in yesterday’s LATTW, it’s a week for giving, for supporting the causes and the people you care about, and there are many right now worthy of your concern. Another benefit show going on this week, tonight actually, is “What Comes after the Blues,” a tribute to Jason Molina, the principle songwriter of Magnolia Electric Co., which grew out of the influential late-90′s slo-fi group Songs: Ohia. Since 2009, Jason has been in and out of rehab facilities due to “serious health issues,” which he prefers to keep private, but the fact is, like most musicians, he lacks insurance to help pay for years of intense health care. Tonight at Barboza, Seattle songwriters Pickwick, Jason Dodson, Lotte Kester, Cumulus, Ben Fisher and many others celebrate Molina’s music, with proceeds benefitting Molina himself. Find out more about Jason’s situation here, read a recent update from him on his blog here, and get tickets for tonight’s show here.
