Canned Acoustica III Warehouse Live Green Room May 26- 2011
How do you soundtrack a good cause? Why, yes, with a good dose of what our friend Haj calls "folksy acoustic stuff." There was plenty on display Thursday at Canned Acoustica III, a homegrown charity event which spotlights local musicians while helping a great cause.
The third installment was a benefit for the Japanese Red Cross Society. For a criminally low $5 donation, fans saw performances by Two Star Symphony, Fat Tony, Hilary Sloan, The Manichean, Jeff Crowder (of Deep Ella), Holy Fiction, The Handshake, Tax The Wolf, and Alicia Gianni.
Host and mustache therapist Mills McCoin kept the crowd thoroughly entertained in between sets, tossing jabs at everyone from band members to chatterboxes.
