Some of Tucson's most prominent musicians are coming together for a special reason on Thursday, Nov. 12. It's been 18 years since Giant Sandworms co-founder Rainer Ptacek died of cancer, but his legendary stamp on the Old Pueblo's musical tradition is still felt today. Now, fellow bandmate Howe Gelb is bringing folks together to celebrate the life and music of Ptacek for Rainer Fest. Joined by Billy Sedlmayr, Van Christian, Tom Walbank, Brian Lopez, Gabriel Sullivan and Roman Barten-Sherman, Gelb will honor Ptacek's memory with an intimate musical showcase. The proceeds of the event will go towards the Lily Ptacek College Fund.

This limited-seat event takes place at Exploded View Galley (197 E. Toole Ave.) beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the memorial and fundraiser will be available for a sliding scale between $7 to $10 at the door. For more information, visit the gallery's website at www.explodedviewgallery.org.
