Benefit Concert Tonight for Ailing Local Musician

"Ackfest" takes over the Southgate House Revival tonight to benefit area guitarist Ed Ackerson

A diverse collection of local bands will be performing at the Southgate House Revival in Newport tonight, all to help out one of their own. Tonight’s “full house” Southgate show (with music on all three stages) was designed to raise money for Ed Ackerson, a veteran local musician who has played with numerous bands over the years, including Snowshoe Crabs, Stays in Vegas, Strangelove and Hurricane. The Northern Kentucky-based guitarist has been battling kidney disease for around two decades — almost as long as he’s been playing out with area bands. Ackerson is reportedly now in complete renal failure, on dialysis and waiting for a matching donor. The funds raised at the Southgate concert will go to help Ackerson and his family in their time of need. (Ackerman is the father of four.)Scheduled to appear at tonight’s 8 p.m. show — dubbed "Ackfest" — are Prizoner, Hurricane, The Core, Muleshine, Mudpies, Sticky Honey, Kenton Station, Bad Boy Troy, Iconx, Beginnings and more. There will also be silent auction to raise additional funds. Admission is a $12 donation at the door.

Seven years ago, six like-minded residents of Greensboro, N.C., assembled around the concept of wanting to channel their classic Rock & Roll influences into an acoustic Folk/Jazz/Soul stompathon. The sextet christened its newly minted aggregation Holy Ghost Tent Revival.  

Girls Guns and Glory

Girls Guns and Glory is an unusual entity in this day and age, a fairly normal band that rides the rail of the early Country music influences found in Rock & Roll. Still, they are modern in their sensibilities and are not a part of the current retro trend in roots music.  

Noah Gundersen with Armon Jay

Given his raspy delivery, spare acoustic guitar accompaniment, erudite wordplay and numerous Tom Waits videos posted on his Tumblr page, it’s easy to draw a line between Seattle singer/songwriter Noah Gundersen and the world’s most famous boho troubadour. Too easy, perhaps.

The fan base that Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray have accumulated over the past three years must look like a random demographic sampling from the U.S. census.

Guttermouth

Punk Rock covers a lot of serious, meaty topics — individualism, anger, materialism, rebellion. But as Guttermouth has proven, Punk Rock can also be about spitting in the face of propriety for the sheer pleasure of it: They are reportedly banned in Canada and have a song about a donkey sex show.
