BENEFITS: Windmills and drum fills for hospital bills

While walking home from work in the early-morning hours of September 14, Rainbo Club bartender Danny Zaretsky was shot in the face during a mugging. No arrests have been made, but fortunately he sustained only minor injuries and was out of the hospital in a few days. Less fortunately, hospital stays are never cheap—Zaretsky's bills currently total about $1,300, and they're not done arriving. As is typical in his line of work, he's uninsured.

Enter local garage-psych band Disappears. The Rainbo is an important place to them—they were all working or hanging out there when they started the group—and on Sun 11/25 at 8:30 PM they're throwing Zaretsky a benefit show inside the tiny bar. Admission is a five-dollar suggested donation, and all proceeds go to Zaretsky; he'll be working that night, so handsome tips are especially encouraged. Disappears' set will include the first material they've recorded with new drummer Noah Leger, which they'll release this spring on the 12-inch EP Kone. "We're also recording a new album in January," says front man Brian Case, "so we'll be testing out a few of those as well."

This is only the second time this year that Rainbo has hosted a rock show—the first was the Running record release in May. If you've ever spent time at the bar, it's easy to imagine how intimate a show there could be. And by "intimate," I mean "crowded." Show up early.
