It’s the time of year when everyone’s holding a benefit, a fundraiser or a food collection. Can you stand one more? Three area bands join forces tonight for Cleveland’s Taussig Cancer Center. User Sets Mode+ features guitarist Derek Lashua and his singer/wife Mandy, who are best known around town for their old band Racemason. With bassist Justin Arroya and drummer Eric Mzik propelling them, they’ve created a sound that places sleek melodies on top of hard-rocking music. Although the band opened some dates for Linkin Park’s Project Revolution tour last year, its infectious pop-inflected rock is better suited to the Warped crowd. Attack Cat is a female-fronted group featuring the winsome vocals of the single-named Red and crisp, tuneful instrumentals. They released their debut EP, When the Moon Was Big, a few months ago. Youngtown trio First in Space features a classic-rock-inspired sound swathed in Neil Young/Tom Petty flannel. The show starts at 8:30 at the Beachland (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124. ). Admission is $7. — Anastasia Pantsios
