“Heart of the City” SIMS Foundation benefit at Emo’s. The full title of this event is “True stories, sordid confessions, and music from the heart of the city,” which means the musicians will not just be playing songs, but also sharing tales about themselves.

Participants include Charlie Sexton, Erika Wennerstrom, Israel Nash, Nakia, Kathy Valentine, Riders Against the Storm, the Grupo Fantasma Horns and the Jones Family Singers. Proceeds benefit the SIMS Foundation. 8:30 p.m. Saturday. $50. 2015 Riverside Drive. — Peter Blackstock
