Music notes

Two big benefits this weekend: One will be held for (and at) all-ages venue Ark-a’ik at 6 p.m. April 19 with Twice, S.E.E.D., Existence, Sucka Punch, Step and A Moments Loss; another is slated for April 20 for Maisie’s Mouth at Stoney’s Skate Park with MC Gob, My Dead Son, The Vitriolics, Scurvy Bastards, Genghis & The Cons, Dick Bob & The Nob and Sloth. Based on my experience at Stoney’s, the show will start whenever the bands show up, so just hang out in the Burger King parking lot until you hear music.
