What better way to launch a nonprofit campaign in Dallas than with a rock show? Even if you're not sure about the "mosh[ing] with old friends" that Mercy for Animals touts in its online event description, surely you can get behind music with a cause. The show aims to raise funds for the animal advocacy group, as well as draw attention to the cruelty of the meat, dairy and egg industries. Saboteur (fronted by vegan Justin Wilson) headlines -- naturally -- the benefit with Division of Power, Museum Creatures, the Shortest Distance and Soft Environmental Collapse supporting. Admission is a donation of $5 to $10. The show takes place Friday at the Cavern, 1914 Greenville Ave. Doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m. For more info, visit mercyforanimals.org.
