Bloomington’s Amethyst House will feature local artists Mike Adams At His Honest Weight, Rodeola, Shanda Sung and Damion at its 10th annual benefit concert from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Nov. 17 at the John Waldron Arts Center.
Amethyst House is a not-for-profit organization providing residential and outpatient services for people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The benefit concert is meant to bring together advocates, supporters and those in recovery to bring attention to the need for community services to help those experiencing substance use disorders.
The event's main attraction is Mike Adams At His Honest Weight, a pop genius and podcaster. His most recent album, "Guess for Thrills," combines synth-driven atmospherics with pop inspired by the 1970s, creating a delightfully funny yet sincere sound.
Local musician Kate Long's captivating musical act Rodeola is also on the roster. Her 2021 album "Arlene," which features her ambient-leaning folk-rock, explores the nuances of relationships and has been praised by Pitchfork and Brooklyn Vegan.
Damion, a Bloomington singer-songwriter, will also perform live, bringing his own musical style to the event.
The funny Shanda Sung, a comedian from Bloomington who has a 2024 special coming up, will emcee the event.
