This benefit for Dare to Care’s food-raiser program collects canned goods and frozen turkeys for those in need, so thank Yum! Brands and WFPK for making it happen. As entertainment, Joseph Arthur has replaced the previously announced Burlap to Cashmere on this night of giving and adult album alternative music, but Ponderosa is still on the bill. Georgia’s Ponderosa — meaning “ponderous” or “heavy” in its Latin original — are coming off a series of dates with dinosaur supergroup Chickenfoot, so don’t be surprised if they need time to readjust to playing for music fans (instead of a stadium filled with Hagar fans waiting for “I Can’t Drive 55”). Peter Gabriel protégé and Pearl Jam buddy Arthur, an Akron native, is a more than worthy replacement for the Burlaps, as his well-crafted songs should balance out nicely with Ponderosa’s stomp. —Peter Berkowitz
