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.
