Local musicians will be the first to tell you that their job descriptions generally do not include benefits beyond a free meal or beer now and then which is partly why DC ROCKS exists. Musicians write me, I write about them, and like lichens, we try to keep each other alive.
But musicians are generally generous souls, and often play benefits or events which can be incredibly reasonable. For example this Friday Lethal Peanut will put aside part of the proceeds of their CD release party at the Rock and Roll Hotel to support DC's own Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Tickets are just $10 for 3 bands. You get music all night; they get the money and share it with a place that produces musicians. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
