Covers for Cover II with Sally Timms, Maybenauts, Iris, Slutter, and others 

When: Wed., Dec. 23, 8 p.m. 2009
Price: $12, $10 at door with donation of toiletries, 18+.
In case these last few days before Christmas find you in danger of a yuletide OD, the local acts at this benefit—many of them bands assembled for the occasion—are all playing cover sets of fine secular fare. The lineup includes power-pop chicks the Maybenauts taking on Bowie, Iris (featuring members of the Wanton Looks) as the Breeders, Dressed in Black (with members of the Hidden Mitten) covering the Gossip, Slutter (members of the Venom Lords) doing Kiss—and, most promising, Sally Timms of the Mekons as Velvet Underground ice queen Nico. The evening's host is Ratso's sister Rattina from Chic-a-Go-Go, and just as with the first Covers for Cover in 2006, proceeds go to a women's shelter—in this case the CAWC Greenhouse, which provides housing and support for women affected by domestic violence. —Jessica Hopper
