Rain City Rock Camp for Girls hosts its annual benefit concert tonight at Chop Suey. (This Seattle organization holds summer day camps and year-round programs that are dedicated to building positive self-esteem in girls and encouraging creative expression through music.) Leading the festivities are Carson and Tess Henley, local siblings who have carved out their own musical careers but frequently perform together onstage. Whether they have a full band behind them, or are stripped down to a keyboard and a cajón, the brother-sister duo exude a type of joyful and timeless soul music, channeling the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire. For some nervier jams, check out Cryptobebelem, whose trip-wire songs build suspense and hold down steady grooves while also showing a lot of heart. They sound like the score to a high-flying and paranoid action movie that’s actually worth seeing. And if you need any more reasons to attend, there will also be raucous camper bands and sharpie tattoos. 6 pm, $10/$12 DOS.
And here's all our recommended music events—tonight, tomorrow, and beyond!
