For Pete's Sake: A Benefit for Pete Krebs

Lewi Longmire & The Left Coast Roasters, James Low, Freak Mountain Ramblers, Little Sue, Laurelthirst All-Stars

When: Thu., March 14, 6 p.m. 2013

Tonight and tomorrow, literally dozens of Portland musicians—representing the local roots, swing, rock, folk, country, and jazz scenes, and beyond—take the LaurelThirst stage to raise money for guitarist Pete Krebs' medical bills. Suffering from a rare form of cancer, Krebs was the beneficiary of two shows in February, and these stacked bills will further aid the cause of helping a working musician who's currently unable to perform while he undergoes treatment. Much has been said about Krebs in the pages of this paper ["Everybody's Best Friend," Feb 20] but the need is just as great, and the assemblage of local talent spread across these two nights at the LaurelThirst is evidence of Krebs' importance. This is as good as causes get. NED LANNAMANN
