There are many upsetting things about the Christmas and New Year's season -increased credit card debt, unresolved decades-long family pain, the spiritual vacuum at the core of our culture, trying to get into the spirit of things and on and on.

Thankfully, the South Sound music scene is still raging during the holiday season to keep us sane.

The Weekly Volcano dropped in on a few shows this past weekend, including two benefits.

First, Tacomans Najamonique Todd and Del Brown hosted their second Sound Icons show, this time focusing on the music of Jeff Buckley. Friday night at The New Frontier Lounge, Alex Tapia, Kurt Lindsay, Todd and Brown's band Wait In The Fire and Not From Brooklyn did Buckley right. Check out more photos and video from the show here.

Early Saturday evening, Kim Archer took to the Weekly Volcano's Electric Salchow Stage, performing for the ice skaters at the Franciscan Polar Plaza. See the photos and watch the videos of her performance here.

Later Saturday night, the Weekly Volcano dropped in on the Casey Heath benefit at McCoy's Tavern in downtown Tacoma. Click here for a brief backstory on Heath's tragic death. We snapped a few photos at the benefit as you can see above.

Last, we dropped in on the Euphoria Marie Sorensen Sunday night at The New Frontier Lounge. Bands played, henna ink got squeezed, fortunes were told and swag was auctioned off to benefit Sorensen, who was struck by a truck while crossing the street in October. To see more photos from the benefit, and to learn how to contribute, click here.

Hope everyone had an awesome weekend.
