Dave Simonett of bluegrass-folk outfit Trampled by Turtles knows a thing or two about devastation. The 36-year-old Minnesotan has been pretty vocal about his divorce (or as he has referred to it, “marital suicide”) in 2014. But Simonett has a rare gift of turning a deep dive of pain into achingly tender mementos instilled with hope. So, it makes perfect sense that Ferndale’s Otus Supply chose Simonett to kick off its weeklong one-year anniversary celebration. The concert, titled “Gimme Shelter,” benefits South Oakland Shelter with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the homeless community. The benefit show includes an option for a four-course dinner from award-winning chef Myles McVay.
The event begins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at Otus Supply; 345 E. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale; 248-291-6160; otussupply.com; Tickets are $25 for the show, $100 for dinner and a show.
