Hendershot’s hosts a benefit concert and silent auction Saturday featuring more than a dozen artists from all stylistic stripes. Organizers are hoping to help fund the Common Ground LGBT Community Center, which will provide support and a safe space for Athens’ gay and transgender citizens. The night will be hosted by local MC and LGBT activist Ricky Roberts, aka Ricky Simone, whose most recent album, Johnetta’s Daughter, is a touching tribute to Roberts’ late mother. Additional performers include folk duo The Skipperdees, long-running Athens rock outfit Carla Le Fever and the Rays, R&B songstresses Tashia Love and Repunza, rappers LG and Chrismis and many others.
