Two of the Pacific Northwest's biggest artists, Death Cab for Cutie and The Decemberists, have teamed up for a benefit concert for both Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. It's an acoustic benefit that goes down on June 9 at the Paramount in Seattle. Sera Cahoone will be the support act. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 12 at 10 AM PST here. Donate to Planned Parenthood here and the ACLU here.

Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard had this to say about the concert in a press release: "We as Death Cab For Cutie are appalled by the divisive, xenophobic and misogynistic agenda the Trump Administration is attempting to implement in our country. We are proud to be joining our friends The Decemberists and Sera Cahoone in support of both the ACLU and Planned Parenthood at this pivotal time in our nation's history." 

Colin Meloy of the Decemberists had this to add: "There are enough stories from this last week alone - the Trump administration's attempts to curtail first amendment protections and the GOP's passage of the heartless AHCA - to remind us that organizations like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU need our support now more than ever. We Decemberists are proud to do our bit to help those orgs stay funded and active in their communities, both local and nationwide. RESIST!"
