  • "Pack The Van" is a concert fundraiser for New Orleans' prog-rockers Hildegard.

While New Orleans experimental rock- and jazz-influenced pop outfit Hildegard was on tour in San Francisco last month, its van was broken into and its gear was stolen. The band — featuring multi-dimensional guitarist Cliff Hines and jazz vocalist Sasha Masakowski — lost all its instruments, bits of gear and other musical hardware.

On Friday, June 12, an all-star lineup of local musicians will "Pack the Van" by hosting a benefit concert for the band. Member of The Revivalists, Naughty Professor, Earphunk and Gravity A, among others, will perform at 10 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf (907 S. Peters St.). Tickets are $10.

Hildegard released its debut self-titled album in April. Listen to "Siren Song" and watch the video for "A to Z" here.
