There’s been no shortage of benefit concerts popping up the last six months, specifically for the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. With every stress-inducing news alert we get on our phones, there’s no reason to believe this trend will be slowing down. Local heroes Death Cab for Cutie and The Decemberists will do their part toward making a change by co-headlining Cascadia Resists: An Acoustic Evening in Support of the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, featuring an opening set from Seattle singer-songwriter Sera Cahoone, this Friday, June 9th, at The Paramount. All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.

“We as Death Cab For Cutie are appalled by the divisive, xenophobic and misogynistic agenda the Trump Administration is attempting to implement in our country,” Death Cab songwriter Ben Gibbard said of the event in a press statement. “We are proud to be joining our friends The Decemberists and Sera Cahoone in support of both the ACLU and Planned Parenthood at this pivotal time in our nation’s history.”

This event is a great chance to bask in the music of artists who’ve helped define Seattle indie rock for more than a decade as well as giving back to two great causes. If you can’t make it to the show and still want to offer your support, you can donate directly to the ACLU here and Planned Parenthood here.
