“Helpmate could use a helping hand,” says the Facebook invite for an evening of music by Jeff Thompson, Vendetta Creme and Aaron Price. The local performers cross genres and styles: Thompson is a singer-songwriter and guitarist, Price a multi-instrumentalist with a knack for clever piano-pop, and Vendetta Creme is the jazz and cabaret project of Price and vocalist Kelly Barrow. All of which adds up to a wide array of song styles — a celebration in and of itself — but the concert is also a benefit for domestic violence agency and crisis-level services provider Helpmate. The organization has assisted Buncombe County victims of domestic violence and their children for more than 30 years. Safe & Sound is held at The Altamont Theatre on Saturday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, donations are encouraged. thealtamont.com. Photo of Price by Frank Zipperer
