As if they hadn’t already done enough in town this week, after three sold-out shows at KeyArena, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis announced Friday that they will join The Helio Sequence and other Seattle bands for the second annual Seattle Children’s hospital benefit Saturday at Showbox at the Market. The concert is sold out.

The benefit is presented by KEXP FM and Sub Pop Records. Called SMooCH — Seattle musicians for Children’s Hospital — the benefit is for uncompensated care at the hospital. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to Children’s hospital.

Other groups on the show are Allen Stone, The Lonely Forest and Shelby Earl. KEXP morning DJ John Richards will host.

SMooCH Benefit

7 p.m. Saturday at Showbox at the Market, 1426 First Ave., Seattle; sold out (206-628-0221 or www.showboxonline.com).
