Give-A-Jam @ Clifton Center

Clifton Center
2117 Payne St. •
$10; 6 p.m.

The Clifton Center presents an amazing and eclectic lineup of musicians, ranging from the bluegrass of Hog Operation to the jazz of Mike Tracy, plus nine others, at its second annual event to assist the Coalition for the Homeless. Center executive director John Harris says, “The big challenge, which was a great problem to have, is that we have so much music.” The Irish Rover, Proof on Main, Taco Punk and The Silver Dollar offer soups and stews for $4 per serving, and there will be a cash bar. All involved are volunteering their time and efforts. Donations are sought for a silent auction. The Coalition’s “Rx: Housing” will use the proceeds to move at-risk individuals from the street to housing, for deposits, furniture and necessities; 62 placements have been arranged in the past year. —Martin Z.
