If you’re looking for a good musical road trip, you can check out the second annual Lounge Acts benefit concert, which will start at 7 p.m. on Sept. 13 at the Seventh Street Theatre in Hoquiam, according to a press release organizers sent out this week. Popular Seattle bands Harvey Danger and Schoolyard Heroes will headline this second annual benefit to memorialize the late, great Kurt Cobain in his hometown, Aberdeen.

In 2005, organizers erected a sign at the entrance to town that reads “Welcome to Aberdeen: Come As You Are.” And last year, they kicked off the Lounge Acts benefits.

Opening acts for this year’s event are Black Top Demon and Gebular, chosen from a dozen entries at a “battle of the bands” competition in June. Find out more at the Kurt Cobain memorial site.
