Lynette Knackstedt, founding member of ska punks Skankin' Pickle, died last December 7 of a drug overdose. But her friends and fans are holding a memorial concert to remember Lynette at a show at 924 Gilman Street, where proceeds from the event will benefit a local drug recovery organization. On April 19, Skankin' Pickle's Mike Park will perform his group's tunes with friends under the The Bruce Lee Band moniker. Other acts in the bill include The Barfeeders, and the "burlesque-influenced" Lucifer's Strip Club Band. -- Jennifer Maerz
