Feb. 5 Concert/Benefit for People’s City Mission featuring Pharmacy Spirits, The Surprise Left, Strawberry Burns The Bourbon Theatre, 1415 O St., Lincoln 9:30 p.m., $6 admission or $3 with two or more cans/boxes of food, bourbontheatre.com, 402.477.4776 OK, so we can all agree that benefits are great, especially for things like the People’s City Mission, one of Lincoln’s chief advocacy and outreach organizations for the homeless and impoverished. But they become even better when the bands rock. Like, really rock. Pharmacy Spirits are one of the area’s rising stars, a phoenix out of the ashes of the wonderfully noisy Bad Sects. Strawberry Burns have long been a chief source of straight forward, hook-driven power pop. A final surprise features former members of local legends Sideshow and For Against. This ain’t no quaint night of kumbaya. Come prepared to support a good cause, feed the hungry and have your ears ache.
