A legend is set to join three Austin bands on stage at the 'hawk. The lads of local outfit Salesman are bringing in MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer for "Howling At The Moon... A Benefit For Jail Guitar Doors." This non-profit organization, founded in the USA in 2009 by Kramer and Billy Bragg, provides musical instruments to inmates as a means of rehabilitation through music. Learn about their work over at the JGD site. Under the light of a full moon, Kramer will be performing with Lions, Salesman, and English Teeth for a night of reveling and activism. Early attendees can expect free food, free craft beer from Black Star Co-op, and free pops from Mom & Pops All Natural Frozen Pops. Proceeds from the event benefit JGD-USA programs at the Travis County Correctional Facility.

"It is also this magical mystery ingredient that makes Lions and in particular this EP just so god damn vibrant and sonically colourful. 'Let No One Fall' proudly defies labelling or pigeonholing into any neatly compartmentalised scene, keeping you guessing and glued to the edge of your seats throughout its entire twenty something minutes running time."
