[YOU KNOW WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE] That’s a bill that doesn’t need much explanation, but here goes: John Wesley Harding is a gifted singer-songwriter from England. He hosts a weekly NPR variety show called Cabinet of Wonders. He often invites his friends to perform on the program. His friends happen to include some of Portland’s biggest songwriting talents (and Ben Gibbard), none of whom needs any introduction—no, seriously, if you need me to tell you who any of the people listed are and why they’re important, you probably have no business reading this newspaper’s music section. And this particular show is a benefit for the Children’s Cancer Association, which, considering the recent diagnosis of mellow Portland music giant Pete Krebs, makes this event all the more important.
