Saturday: They call themselves Fans of Sue McLean and they’ve organized a concert to benefit the late Minneapolis concert promoter’s 12-year-old daughter, Lilly. All kinds of artists have stepped up, including New York singer/songwriter Eric Hutchinson, who calls the Twin Cities his best market thanks to various McLean-promoted concerts; enduring Minneapolis rockers Soul Asylum; Wisconsin good-timers the BoDeans; Twin Cities’ Americana aces Molly Maher and Her Disbelievers; Jayhawks duo Marc Perlman and Tim O’Reagan; songstress Haley Bonar; acclaimed indie rockers Rogue Valley, and the X-Boys, an all-star new-wave band featuring members of the Suburbs and Suicide Commandos. There will be a live auction of some of McLean’s personal music memorabilia. (7 p.m. Sat., First Avenue, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls., $50-$150.)
