There's a fundraiser at the Outer Space for Preparatoria Comunitaria José Martí in San Francisco Ixhuatán, Oaxaca, a radical community high school that was heavily damaged by the Central Mexican earthquake in September of last year. Starting at 7 p.m. and for $7 — all proceeds going toward rebuilding the school — come jam out with four touring bands and a local supporter for a good cause. The line-up is Lansing, Michigan's She/Her/Hers, Heavenly Bother and Gal Pal from Santa Cruz, Portland Oregon's folk punkers Raccoon Venom and Arcata's own Chuliya.
Meanwhile, at 8 p.m. up at The Van Duzer Theatre, come listen to the inscrutable and soothing crooning Latin gorgeousness of Roberto Carlos Lange, better known by his stage name Helado Negro. Currently signed to Sufjan Stevens' label Asthmatic Kitty, there just aren't the right kinds of words in English or Spanish to describe the otherworldly sheen of this of the music of this Miami-born son of Ecuadorian immigrants, so for only $10 you get to invent your own language to figure it all out.
