Music Spotlight: Cy Rawls has a posse

The local music scene looks after its own. So for our mutual friend Cy Rawls, recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and lacking insurance, money is being raised by Cat’s Cradle and Local 506 with a series of benefit shows. On Saturday, Aug. 16 at 9 p.m., Local 506 will host the WXY-Cy! Dance Party with current and former WXYC DJs spinning tunes. The show is free, so show up and send some good vibrations or some donated cash, or both! The next night, Sunday, Aug. 17, Cat’s Cradle hosts the “Cy Rawls Has a Posse” benefit show with bands Polvo, Cantwell Gomez & Jordan, Double Negative, Fin Fang Foom and Magic Babies. Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $15. And on Friday, Aug. 29, Cat’s Cradle hosts “Cy Rawls Has a Posse (Part II)” with Superchunk, The Rosebuds and Birds of Avalon at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25. So help out and spread some good vibrations!
