On Sunday the 25th, once you’re plenty stuffed with turkey and all the leftovers are gone, head on over to one of SF’s best venues, Rickshaw Stop. There you'll find a romping night of great music to benefit victims from last month’s fires in the North Bay: From SF With Love.

The event (one of three) has been organized by local promoter Seaweed Sway and the Garden Sessions artist collective. Tiny Telephone founder John Vanderslice will start the night out with a DJ set before psych-rock-and-rollers Mayya & The Revolutionary Hell Yeah jump on stage, embodying the unbridled spirit of old San Francisco. Josiah Johnson of the Head & the Heart will make a special solo appearance, followed by Papa Bear and the Easy Love bringing the psych-folk jam back to center stage (check out their new live video here). Local riot rock band the Wyatt Act will close the night out with lead singer and bassist Guinevere-Q sure to shake even tryptophan addicts from their food coma.

All proceeds from the show’s ticket sales benefit undocumented immigrants in Sonoma County (via UndocuFund) and the North Bay community at large (via Redwood Credit Union Community Fund). An impressive raffle (with items donated from Dog Eared Books, San Franpsycho, the Chapel, Freight and Salvage, Great Star Theater, Ritual Coffee, Mission Cliffs, and more) and catering by the queer vegan-pop up Vegan & Sara ups the fundraising ante. So far the shows have raised nearly $8,000.

So slip away from the grip of the holiday stupor! Bring some green into the lives of those spending Thanksgiving in a shelter or in borrowed space.
