A fire destroyed the Roberts’ Shoe Store building on Memorial Day weekend, displacing dozens of artists and collectives. Since then, the Twin Cities community has been stepping up to help. Almost immediately, crowdfunding campaigns were set up to aid folks who lost equipment, years of work, and personal items. This week, people who want to assist can stop by Moon Palace Books for a comedy and music showcase where funds will benefit artists affected by the fire. Hosted by Devohn and Xochi de la Luna, the event will feature a comedy open mic, plus sets from Helena Balcziak and Madi Tentinger. The Miami Dolphins will headline the music portion of the evening, with Tongue Party, Gather Data Pray for Death, and Crash Cuddle also taking the stage.
