Music and film website Spectrum Culture and Muscle + Bone announce Rock Against Alzheimer's, a benefit show featuring Fernando Viciconte, The Minus 5, Kelli Schaefer and Mike Coykendall. The show will benefit the Oregon chapter of the American Alzheimer's Association.
Fernando Viciconte plays roots rock, instilled with a border aesthetic. R.E.M.'s Peter Buck praised the Portland-based Argentine rocker in Mojo Magazine and he has been called the ¬Å“Latino Lennon¬Â by Scott McCaughey.
Headed by McCaughey, the Minus 5 is a local pop stalwart that might be putting out a new record via Yep Roc one minute or covering Neil Young's Zuma the next. The Minus 5 are no strangers to good causes. In 2009, they played a show that helped Portland's Leadership & Entrepreneurship Public (LEP) Charter High School stay open.
Kelli Schaefer may be the newcomer here, but the Willamette Week just named her one of Portland's 10 Best New Acts. Schaeffer will be playing a rare, stripped down set, accompanied only be a guitarist Ryan Lynch.
Mike Coykendall has long been a fixture of the Portland music scene, producing the latest by Blitzen Trapper and joining M. Ward in supergroup She and Him. Coykendall will open the show with a solo set featuring songs from his upcoming album. The event will be hosted by local musician Eric Stern.
This will be the fourth Rock Against Alzheimer's benefit concert. Founded in 2007 by Kenny Field, the organization has raised more than $2,000 to fight Alzheimer's disease with its past shows.
