HOW THE BIRD AND THE BEAR BEAT CANCER
Lymphoma Benefit Concert
8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 29, Mad Donnas
Cancer sucks, but music rocks. Local singer-songwriter duo + couple The Bird and the Bear got the worst news this holiday season when Garry Wood, the bear of the band, received a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis. The young couple has been reeling since the news and this musical fundraiser has been organized to help them foot the costs of the chemotherapy and treatment. The cost is $5 at the door, plus any additional donation you would like to make. Half of the donations will go towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the other half will go towards Garry’s medical bills. Four bands will play, including The Bird and the Bear and their UK-based friend Stephen Glithero, who’s flying in specifically for the special event. If anything can get Nashville to come out for a cause, it’s music, right?  We here at The East Nashvillian don’t know a better way for you to spend your Friday night. .

CAN’T RUN FROM CUPID’S ARROW
Cupid’s Chase 5K
Saturday, Feb. 13, Shelby Park
Valentine’s Day asks you to lead with your heart, but let your legs lead the way to this 5K the day before. This lope of love is a 5K run/walk, with all event proceeds going toward supporting people with disabilities. If you’re looking for love, grab an “available” T-shirt to don during the run and maybe you’ll find the one at the sweaty finish line. For those happily taken, throw on the “unavailable” tee. This Cupid canter supports a great cause and let’s face it, if you’re on the market, Cupid’s Chase might yield more results than OK Cupid. We recommend practicing your one-liners before this run.
 
THIS OLD HOUSE
Old House Fair
9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, March 5, Sevier Park Community Center
Sure, that old house is charming, but what about the faulty foundation, funky plumbing, or that poltergeist in the attic? The Metro Historic Zoning Commission is holding its annual free, daylong festival that will explore and explain the many facets of owning and restoring historic properties. There will be presentations and hands-on demonstrations on a variety of topics pertinent to historic home ownership, like energy efficiency, maintenance and restoration, and era-appropriate design and architecture. For the pip-squeaks, Historic Travellers Rest Plantation & Museum will be providing hands-on activities for children of all ages. Plus, noms from the Smoke Et Al food truck.
