Sleater-Kinney, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks and The Decemberists' Colin Meloy will headline a Feb. 26 benefit for the ACLU and Unite Oregon at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland. Dubbed "Hell No," the show is described as "a protest concert in direct opposition to the policies of the new administration," and is the latest in a flood of singles, albums and gigs in support of the organization following the inauguration of President Trump.

In addition to short sets from the headliners, the concert will also feature Quasi, Team Dresch, Summer Cannibals, Mascaras and a DJ set by Chanti Darling.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Saturday (Feb. 18). The ACLU collected a record $24.1 million in donations in the days before President Trump's controversial immigration ban went into effect; the ban has since been suspended due to multiple court challenges.
