Solange, Fall Out Boy, Demi Lovato assisting Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

A number of musicians have signed on to assist those affected by this week's powerful Hurricane Harvey, which devastated parts of South Texas. Grammy winner Solange, who was born and raised in Houston along with sister Beyonce, will be donating proceeds from two added shows on her current tour to benefit victims of the natural disaster, and specifically residents of the Third Ward, where she grew up. 'I'm committed to partnering with organizations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love,' she wrote on her Instagram page. Solange, by the way, will be in Seattle this weekend for Bumbershoot. Her benefit shows are taking place in Boston and New York. Fall Out Boy is donating all proceeds from its November 7th show at Houston's Toyota Center to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, while country troubador George Strait, another native Texan, is organizing a benefit concert that will include fellow country stars, but no date has been announced yet. Demi Lovato donated $50,000 to the Houston Food Bank, along with Nick Jonas and DNCE, and rapper Drake, who sold out his first show in Houston and has spent a considerable amount of time there, is donating $200,000 to disaster relief efforts.

Bob Mould has announced an upcoming show in Seattle to further promote his 2016 album Patch The Sky. The openly Gay singer-songwriter and former frontman for punk outfits Husker Du and Sugar, who interviewed with Seattle Gay News several years ago, will perform in only five cities next month as a wrap-up to a rather extensive tour that began a year ago. Around the time he kicks off this brief round of dates, at the Cal Jam 17 festival in San Bernadino, California, the 56 year-old rocker's 1989 solo debut Workbook will be added to the prestigious 33 1/13 book series, which also includes Radiohead's OK Computer, The Jimi Hendrix Experience's Electric Ladyland, The Smiths' Meat Is Murder and Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures. Workbook will be published on September 7. Mould is scheduled to perform at The Crocodile on November 21; for tickets, go to www.thecrocodile.com.

Here are some other newly announced concerts to tell you about: Keyshia Cole at The Showbox SoDo on September 6, Hoodie Allen at The Showbox Market on November 26, Over the Rhine at The Triple Door on November 2 and 3, and Tower of Power at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley on November 30 through December 3.

Finally, it's Bumbershoot weekend, which signals the last hurrah of summer for many. It's the first year in about a decade that I won't be attending, but if you're looking for something to do and have money to spend this holiday weekend, head to Seattle Center to catch Lorde, Flume, Weezer, Haime, Solange, Die Antwoord, Spoon, Conor Oberst, Margaret Cho and lots more who'll perform September 1, 2 and 3. For tickets and more information, log onto www.bumbershoot.com.
