“I thought she was coming to my movie, but I was lucky to be in hers.” That’s how longtime local musician Joe Mascolino Perv describes talking scene mainstay Joni Mackin into forming Joni’s Agenda early last year. She had never sang before, but she’d been to countless punk shows and had enthusiasm in spades. And after quickly penning words for Perv’s guitar blasts and finding her footing onstage, she proved to be a natural.

Mackin died last month in a car accident. The local music scene will celebrate her life Friday with an 11-act bill and a benefit raffle. Her urn will be there, too, inside an RV where friends can honor her personally. Says Perv: “Onstage she was the Tiny Terror, but she was a princess of a person.” With IDFI, FSP, Guilty by Association and others, donation requested. -Mike Prevatt
