ROCK | Benefit Concert for the Family of Officer Pierson 

Supporting local music is a good cause, but when you make the show a tribute to a slain local police officer it becomes a great one. Five bands — four of which are based in Rochester or have Rochester roots — will come together to raise money for the family of Officer Daryl Pierson, who died in the line of duty in September. Pierson left behind a wife and two children. Lou Gramm of Foreigner fame headlines the show, joining former Journey lead singer Steve Augeri, the uber-psychedelic King Buffalo, local rock cover act Download, and modern rockers Rainline. If you're going to make it to one show before the new year comes in, make it one that has a great purpose.

The benefit for Daryl Pierson's family will be held Saturday, December 6, at The Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 6 p.m. $20.
