When rock band Trees on Fire went on hiatus a few years ago, not only did the local scene lose a source of rhythmic, groove-driven innovation, but a passionate voice in the fight for protecting the environment was disbanded. The group is reuniting to head up a new family-friendly music festival that includes the Greg Howard/John D’earth/Darrell Rose Trio, Quiet Fire, Lua, Willie DE, JJ von Briesen, Bobby St. Ours and more in a benefit for the Charlottesville Waldorf School.

Saturday, June 17. $10-15, under 16 free, noon. Charlottesville Waldorf School, 120 Waldorf School Rd. 973-4946.
