Apocalypse Meow 7 begins tonight at Mills Record Co. and RecordBar, continues tomorrow at Knuckleheads
When the Midwest Music Foundation first conceived the Apocalypse Meow benefit seven years ago, the goal was simple. Money raised from the benefit would help the organization’s co-founder, Abigail Henderson, pay a stack of hospital bills accumulated from her fight with breast cancer. Henderson died last year, but the MMF rallies again to raise money for Abby’s Fund, which assists local musicians with health-care-related financial struggles.
This year, Apocalypse Meow falls on two consecutive nights. Friday, local blues stars Katy Guillen and the Girls perform at RecordBar, and Various Blonde and the Philistines appear at Mills Record Co.; Saturday, Knuckleheads hosts a big lineup, including Joe Pug, Outsides, the Pedaljets and more.
