Erisy Watt’s lovably cozy and charitable Cabin By the Sea concert series has helped raise more than $4,000 for area nonprofit organizations and musicians since its founding two years ago. Now admirers of Cabin By the Sea can give back to the concert series by heading to Sama Sama Kitchen (1208 State St.) and celebrating the release of Erisy’s new EP on Sunday, December 11, 6-9 p.m., with additional performances by Michael Sallstrom and Corey Leiter.
Funds raised at the event will help allow Watt to take the concert series on the road with a summer tour, where the musician and her band will connect with nonprofits up and down the West Coast. Watt and bassist Rafael Rozendo both said the shows are all about giving back and building community, and from their offstage involvements in organizations such as Coalition for Sustainable Transportation, Wildlands Studies, and Bici Centro, it’s clear they’re a pair of proactive people who suffuse their whole lives with purpose, passion, and positivity.
