KEXP's Sonic Reducer punk/hardcore show is celebrating their 10th birthday today by throwing a benefit for the Betsy Hansen Cancer Fund with all these rad bands:

The Fe Fi Fo Fums (Jesse Lortz, Johnny Samra, and Nick Larson) haven't played since 2007, but they're reuniting for this hula-hoopin' punchbowl of a show that will also feature the sorely missed insta-party-makers Coconut Coolouts, the almost-catchier-than-the-Beatles trio Wimps, the pummeling world-class rock 'n' roll of the Unnatural Helpers, and a sweet new band called Deep Creep (featuring Andrea Zollo, Brian Yeager, Derek Fudesco, and Jeff Alvarez).

Betsy Hansen is an amazing person, a talented person, a generous person, and a person who is fighting an epic battle against cancer. Hansen and husband Johnny Samra were the owners of Radar Hair and Records in SoDo—a business they recently had to sell when her stage IV battle became more serious. As a small-business owner, she did not have insurance and her medical costs are reaching a fucked-up level.

This is a great night of music for a very great cause—you should absolutely go.
