Save the Forrest: Forrest Shaw Family Benefit Concert At the end of 2014, Forrest Shaw (veteran of popular local political podcast The Left Show) was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. Now, his medical bills and household expenses are starting to stack up, so Salt Lake City's comedy, music and podcast scenes are joining forces to give Shaw and his family some much-needed assistance. Tonight's benefit concert will feature a diverse lineup of local talent, including comics Melissa Merlot, Taylor Hunsaker, Kristall Starr and Rebecca Frost, as well as bands/musicians Mary Tebbs, Molten Blue, L.P.X., Magda-Vega, and Dave Hahn with Fred Hebling. The goal is to raise $10,000 from ticket sales and a silent auction to go toward the Shaw family's medical debt and household bills (including their mortgage), as well as hopefully toward a family vacation so they can make some memories together. If you can't attend the show, donations are also being accepted at PodcastPhil.com. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
