Lewis House Benefit 2 features Jaeneen Gauthier, Chris Harrington, Future Lisa, Trailer Park Queen and more

There are some clear front-runners for show picks tonight. Soul Asylum at First Avenue, The Flamin' Oh's and Ol' Yeller at the Fine Line, and the 2024 Records party at The Nomad World Pub. But here's another one worthy of attention.

"Lewis House Benefit 2", a musical showcase to benefit Community Action Councils's Lewis House Womens Crisis Shelters, takes place tonight (Friday, December 23rd) at Club Underground. (355 Monroe St NE, Mpls $5 . 9PM)

The will be hosted by event organizer Future Lisa. Acts include Jeaneen Gauthier (Jan), Chris Harrington, Codger, Scott Bartell on Bagpipes, Future Lisa, Larry Ravenswood and the Aura, Lolly Pop(Telephone), and Trailer Park Queen.

Lisa says that with all the hurricane and other disaster benefits going on people are giving less money to local charities, so she wants to help do what she can to help the two Womens Crisis Shelters that Lewis House runs.

"These are wonderful facilities," she stated in a press release, "where women and kids can escape domestic violence and be in a safe house environment while they get the counseling and other services they need to get back on their feet."

The Lewis house also does counseling and outreach for women that don't need the full live in environment. Lisa added that has used these services herself, and says she owes them for helping her escape a bad marriage. "I would not be Future Lisa today if not for Lewis House," she said.
