DANCE RADIO BASS BASH FUNDRAISER
5 p.m. Aug. 31 at rain dogs., Riverside, $5.
Community is important, especially when you’re in need – financially, emotionally, or just to throw a hella-awesome benefit dance party. Come shake what your momma gave you and peep the skills of eight DJs (the talented kind, not the ones who splice dial-up din on their trust-fund Macbooks) and spoken word artists as they raise funds for Kathleen Williams, a young girl fighting cancer without insurance. There’s a free vegan potluck and free keg, too, and what sounds like a super-sweet raffle. See? Community rules.
