Local punk and ska guitarist Zac Gilstrap, who played with The PirkQlaters and The Ackbars, is in need of some serious cash to defray mounting medical costs after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Currently undergoing chemotherapy at the University of Utah, Gilstrap's friends in the local music community have organized a benefit concert to help their pal out.
The following bands are busting out their gear to raise money for a friend in serious need: Hummingbird of Death, Ohadi, Strings and Chemicals, The Old One Two, Juntura, Radillac, Demoni, Manville, Fury of the Cyclops, A New Agenda, Trigger Itch, Marshall Zeis (acoustic) and Sleeping Sickness (acoustic). And, as if that weren't rad enough, the tassel on the proverbial boob will come in the form of some hip-swinging burlesque performances and a raffle for bar tab certificates.
Saturday, Sept. 26, 6 p.m., $5, Grizzly Rose, 1124 W. Front St., 208-342-3375. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
