Shelli Kountz, left, of Seattle, gives a hug and words of gratitude and encouragement to Marci Smith of the band Power Skeleton, who sung onstage for the first time after their lead singer was out sick for the Mia Zapata tribute concert and benefit at The Comet Sunday July 7th 2013 on the 20th anniversary of her murder. "It is giving women the opportunity to feel safe," said Kountz about the concert, which raised $1200 for Seven Star Women's Kung Fu. "It's a simple gift."
