The Cattle Club Reunites for Jerry Perry

Homegrown bands like the Deftones and Cake played there. So did Nirvana and dozens of regional and local bands. The Cattle Club was a pillar of the Sacramento music scene in the '80s and '90s and a celebration of that history will come alive this weekend at Harlow's with a benefit concert for Cattle Club co-manager Jerry Perry.

"The Cattle Club was a very special place where people from different parts of the city could come together", says Marc Malakie, co-producer of Saturday's benefit at Harlow's, " It was a gathering place for the freaks, the goths, the punks the alt-rockers".

Some of the most iconic local bands and artists from the 1990-93 era of the Cattle Club are reuniting for the effort: Kai Kin, Little Guilt Shrine, 99Tales, Nothing but a Nightmare, The Troublemakers and The Rosebuds. The money raised will go toward rising medical bills for Perry, who has championed local bands and artists for 30 years in Sacramento.  Below is a sample of what you'll hear:

99 Tales - Bleeding on a Wide Trail

Advanced tickets sold out but tickets will be available at Harlow's on Saturday.  Doors open at 2pm
