Sometimes musicians use their talent to try to make big change (see: The National, Breeders at Fountain Square yesterday). But even more often, musicians will use their gifts for more modest reasons, helping friends in need. It's still about "change," but it's on a much more tangible level when the change is aimed at helping one man.
This Sunday, several local artists will perform at a concert at Molly Malone's in Covington that will benefit Steve Cresap, a loyal local music friend and fan who has cerebral palsy (if you go out to see live music a lot, you've likely seen Steve out in about in his cart). The change organizers are striving for? To raise some money in order to make Steve's house more accessible for him.—-
Sunday's event kicks off early, with a 2 p.m. start, and features great veteran Cincinnati bands like psychodots, The Goshorn Brothers and The Bluebirds. The Newbees, Kenny Cowden and Tupelo Honey also perform. Cover is $10, which all goes directly to the cause. The event is slated to run until 8 p.m.
