Mike Marchant, the subject of this week's profile, is a beloved figure in the Denver music scene, and as you might recall, he was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and is in the process of undergoing chemotherapy. Numerous fundraisers have been organized on his behalf to help ease the stress of his steadily accumulating medical bills, including this weekend's Mike Fest at 3 Kings Tavern and the hi-dive, which will feature a slew of fellow local acts donating their time to help the cause. Can't find a babysitter but still want to pitch in? There's another benefit being held next week that you don't even have to leave your house to experience.
A StageIt.com concert is scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, at the Governor's Residence at Boettcher Mansion featuring Patrick Dethlefs and friends, including Esme Patterson from Paper Bird, Joe Sampson and more. While there will not be a live audience for the gig, the show will be broadcast live at 8 p.m.. If you're familiar with the whole StageIt concept, you'll be able to chat with the acts and there will be a virtual tip jar. Suggested donation is $5, and the entire proceeds from the show will be donated to Marchant afterward.
