An eclectic bunch of local music types and Capitol Hillers will assemble tonight to raise some cash for their pals at Frager’s Hardware, the Hill establishment destroyed by a fire on June 5.

American Legion Post #8, at the northwest corner of 3rd and D streets Southeast, will host the Friends of Frager’s “Honky Tonk Good Time,” which is also helped along by Quicksilver Productions. Since the fire, the Capitol Hill community has come together to host fundraisers to help Frager’s get back on its feet at places as diverse as Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital, 201 Bar and the Fridge DC.

The hoedown, which gets under way at 3:30 p.m., features food, music, a cash bar and lots of activities for kids. Music starts up at 6 p.m. and features jazz band The Captones, rock group The Side Dish, Americana group The Truck Farmers and ska/reggae band Free Lobster Buffet. Suggested donation for individuals is $20 and proceeds go to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation, which is aiding the rebuild Frager’s movement.
