Amoeba Music, Bottom of the Hill, KUSF, KFJC, Rite Spot — Ursula Rodriguez's employment history is a laundry list of vital San Francisco music institutions. A neighborhood fire ravaged Rodriguez's Mission District home of 15 years in December, then thieves stole her remaining belongings from her car. In appreciation of her contribution to San Francisco's music scene, a showcase of local acts will perform for her benefit. Idiosyncratic Oakland pop trio Shannon & the Clams are headlining, but openers The Mallard and Blasted Canyons could both vie for the slot with their respective psychedelic terror-rock and ferocious synth-punk.
