Northside Tavern hosts a party Friday to benefit the local Save Our Strays (SOS) animal rescue. Local bands Buckra (pictured), Daughters & Sons and Nathan Holscher & the Ohio 5 perform their standards as well as tracks from the new SOS album, Free Lap Dances Volume 5: Friends With Benefits.
The event is free, but CDs are $5. SOS is also hawking handmade beaded jewelry, knit clothing and cat toys.www.soscinci.org).
SOS works to reduce the number of stray cats and dogs in Cincinnati through non-lethal methods, including fostering abandoned pets in the homes of volunteers and using the Trap-Neuter-Return method for feral cats.
