APPLAUSE for a Great Cause

Local musicians join forces for Cure for Cole 5, a fundraiser with performances by The Real Thing, Elizabeth Monahan, Wes Cobb, Cardinal Slinky, Askmeificare, Ghostwitch, Gov Club (pictured) and Appalachian Death Trap, in honor of Cole, a local sixth-grader friend of the bands, who has epidermolysis bullosa (EB), a rare and painful genetic skin disorder, for which there’s currently no cure.


7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, Nighthawks, Riverside, $10; proceeds donated to, which directly funds research and advocacy for those with EB.
