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.

    I’d love to win tickets to this show. The lineup sounds great and it’s for a really good cause. And I’ve never been to a show at Mississippi Studios before.

    ***Top 3 reasons I will win these tickets***
    1: When I win these tickets I will not forget to pay it forward, with a nice donation to this worthy cause :)
    2: My wife has been a fan of Kelli Schaefer since before she signed with Amigo/Amiga records, her excitement at seeing her perform will probably lead her to cojole me into donating even more money!
    3: You want to help two genuinely nice homos have an memorable Saturday night!

    Alzheimer’s is a terrible fate on victims and loved ones I have had the misfortune to witness firsthand. What a wonderful opportunity to support a great cause and see a musician I have been dying to see live, the incredible Fernando!

    i’ve been following fernando since moving here fifteen years ago. sorely underrated/under-appreciated artist whom i am so pleased to see back in the live music mix. and mississippi studios couldn’t ask for a better, more passionate voice to fill that space.
