Why: "This is a two night Rock and Roll concert featuring 10 local bands, who are raising money to help our friend Daniel Mills, who just had an emergency appendectomy. The *suggested* donation to attend both nights is $10, but no one will be turned away, so come everybody, and bring your friends."
How: Click "I'm Attending" on the Facebook invite here - it's incredible that as soon as Jesi B. started putting the word out this situation, all this amazing local talent rallied together within days and formed a plan of action to help out a friend. It's a win for local audiences as well - the absolute queens and kings of the North Idaho music scene all gathered together for two nights of top notch entertainment. Not every burst appendix has a silver lining to it, but this one certainly did.
