The Revolution Has Started

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

• At the Henry Fonda Theater, see hard-living country genius Steve Earle & the Dukes with Allison Moorer at 8:30 PM.

• Grab your sweetheart and grease up your pompadour, because the Sweet and Tender Hooligans are performing Meat is Murder in celebration of the album's 20th anniversary at the Knitting Factory. Tickets are $15 and the show starts at 8 PM. (All proceeds are being donated to the Lange Foundation, which finds loving homes for cats and dogs that live in shelters.)

• Who doesn't love Jonathan Richman? Find out, because they won't be there when he performs at King King with Dengue Fever tonight. Cover is $12.
