As we’ve said many times before, we’re big fans of music-for-a-cause type situations. When causes we believe in join forces with bands whose tunes hit our ears favorably, more often than not, we’re going to recommend that show to you as well. As the headline gives away already, tonight’s one of those nights.
Team Up For Nonprofits, an up-and-coming group that raises much-needed funds for other local non-profits through the intersection of music and socializing (whether in-person events or of the virtual variety), is bringing two very talented acts from Washington, Ravenna Woods‘ Chris Cunningham and Lower Lights Burning (based in Seattle and Shelton, respectively), and one lively headlining act from Portland, Drew Grow and The Pastor’s Wives, together for a benefit at the Tractor tonight.
We wholeheartedly recommend getting there by 8 p.m. as the act we’re most excited about seeing is set to take the stage on the hour. Chris Cunningham of Ravenna Woods is not only the frontman of Seattle’s best percussive-acoustic trio, he’s one of the city’s musicians with the best senses of humor, which he’ll no doubt exhibit during his between-song banter. For Chris’ musical contribution to the evening expect a sample of Ravenna Woods’ trademarked take on beautifully controlled chaos, featuring unexpected syncopation and meticulously crafted lyrics.
