Life hasn’t been easy lately for Mike Crow. Just before Christmas, Crow was driving with his family when a car rear-ended them. Soon after, he suffered a brain hemorrhage as he was driving home from work. Because of the severity of his brain injury, Crow currently can’t work installing heating and cooling systems for low-income households, and his family survives on one small income. To top it off, Crow and company don’t have health insurance, so you can only imagine the amount of financial stress that they’re going through. Here’s where you come in. This week let your generous side shine during Rock the Mic for Mike, a benefit concert that aims to help Crow family. This philanthropic evening of music features local Americana favorites Wartime Blues, pictured here, along with driving rock and folk from David Boone and the Mercenaries. Power pop mavens Secret Powers also plan to tear it up, along with a set of pop rock from Places. Acoustic performances by Kira Means and Stan Anglen are also on tap, as is a cameo from the always-affable Mayor John Engen. Besides a night of top shelf music, here’s another reason why this event deserves your attention: All proceeds from the show will be donated to Crow’s family, and the goal is to raise between $20,000 and $30,000 to offset the rising costs of their medical expenses and necessities. Even if you’ve never crossed paths with Crow, you might consider this a prime opportunity to soak in the sounds of some seasoned artists on a grand stage, while also lending your hand to a family in dire need. —Ira Sather-Olson
