We are so excited to invite you all to this inaugural benefit concert event. This concert is an attempt at being the largest fundraiser for SARC this year. In prior years, our annual event has been the WAM walk and we were looking to do a different event.
With the generous donation of McMenamins venue Lola’s Room we’ve put together a great lineup of local acts who are all stepping up to help raise our voices for SARC. In addition to four great acts we have some great raffle prizes planned. Stay tuned for updates on further developments.
Here is the show flyer as a PDF which you can please share and distribute at-will. We thank Christine Ellsworth of Broken 1 Design, who created the flyer and is doing some great design work for SARC (more on that later!)

Here’s a little bit about the bands.
Headlining the show will be Tiburones, named after the spanish word for sharks. They are an up and coming band that was named one of this year’s best new bands by Willamette Week. They’ve been working on their debut album and are working on its release. Not strangers to the Portland music scene, the band leads are in other well known projects like Y La Bamba and Shaky Hands. Vibrant sounds delivered by an intoxicating 6-piece with enchanting harmonies, syncopated percussion, electric guitars, bass, and keys. “TIburones frames the sound of folk with big, heavy rhythms and songs that split the sea.”
Supraphonics brings a blend of funk, soul, and nu-jazz originals and covers from a group of veteran Portland musicians. All members are deeply rooted in old school grooves like James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Al Green but offer original music with a modern twist. A lot of soul, funk, afro-beat fusion for your listening pleasure! Check them out here.
RLLRBLL has been an established band since 1994. Having since released over 10 full length albums and many more EP’s and singles, many often wonder ‘which Rllrbll’ will play tonight?
They will bring their dueling male-female vocal harmonies and strong bass and piano driven rifts. Listen here.
Alexa Raquel Casciato, of Little Warrior says that the term “Little Warrior” references someone who appears small in day-to-day life, but is really fighting a battle towards good. Well we love that! She is a Little Warrior with a big voice and she couldn’t be happier to be a part of the cause. All songs are composed, programmed and produced, mixed and mastered by the warrior herself, Alexa.
Listen to her recently released album.
