After first making amends over a charity gig on New Year’s Eve, Trailer Trash and Lee’s Liquor Lounge are in simpatico mode again and enlisting a couple of other familiar names for a good cause on Saturday afternoon.

Davina & the Vagabonds and Romantica will join the Trash men at the old Minneapolis watering hole to benefit humanitarian work in the small Guatemalan village of Nueva Providencia, an effort spearheaded by St. John’s Episcopal Church of Minneapolis. The show starts at 5 p.m. and is family-friendly ($20, brownpapertickets.com).

“I’m glad we mended fences with Lee’s — it’s great to be home again,” said Trailer Trash frontman Nate Dungan, whose band got into a two-year dispute with the club. …

Noteworthy newcomer alert: After getting a late start in music following a college hockey stint, Andy Cook is making up for lost time. The Twin Cities native, 30, does a great job blending Kurt Vile’s Velvet-y, mumbly guitar haze with a boyish, bright-eyed lyrical charm on his second EP, “Modern Man.” He recorded the seven-song set at Pachyderm Studio with Jeremy Ylvisaker serving as producer and backers including Al Church, Kate Murray and Jennie Lawless. The latter opens Cook’s release party along with Ylvisaker’s new act Doomchild on Wednesday at 7th Street Entry (8 p.m., $10). …

Congrats to Dessa and her team for landing at No. 3 on Billboard’s independent albums last week with her Doomtree Inc. release “Chime.” The album could stay at 3 or even go higher this week after sizable features via NPR, Paste and Salon. … Dessa is among the significantly downsized contingent of Minnesota acts headed to the South by Southwest Music Conference in Texas next week. Others include Tall Paul, Boombox Cartel, Ness Nite, BdotCroc, Kristoff Krane, Sick of Sarah’s Abisha Uhl and Now, Now. …

Prof’s “Pookie Baby” is on tap from the Rhymesayers label heading into another Soundset festival. Due April 19, the album was teased with a video for the mad-dog song “Andre the Giant” featuring cameos from about half the rappers in town. Male rappers, anyway. …

Another sign of summer: The Memory Lanes Block Party lineup was announced with an electronic/hip-hop-flavored bill on May 26 with Tickle Torture, Dimitry Kilstorm (and his rapper friends), Cashinova, Lady Lark, Shannon Blowtorch and more, and then a punky and rootsy roster on May 27 with the Spits, Butcher’s Union, Malamanya, Blaha, Sass and others. … The Hook & Ladder has turned the lineup announcement for the Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Fest into a party in and of itself, happening Saturday with Kent Burnside, the Flood Brothers and more (8 p.m., $9-$12). …

A fun alternative to that week’s $550-$1,050 Celebration at Paisley Park, newly formed, fan-run nonprofit the Purple Playground will host a skating party at Roller Garden to celebrate Prince on April 19, benefiting music education ($20 via brownpapertickets). … Sound Unseen is screening the Sex Pistols-related rock doc “D.O.A.: A Rite of Passage” at the Trylon on Wednesday (7 p.m., $10).

On what may be the busiest night of spring for local gigs — see also: the Decemberists, Ty Segall, Albert Hammond Jr., Cloud Cult (at Orchestra Hall) and whatever Chris Thile’s radio show is called now — S. Carey will hit the Cedar Cultural Center on April 7 to tout his new album that landed last week, “Hundred Acres.” The Minneapolis-based Bon Iver drummer earned a modest buzz off his 2014 LP (even Taylor Swift dug it!), but he really seems headed for loftier territory with this hush-toned but dramatic new one, which includes regal string work from yMusic’s Rob Moose.
