A Test of Your Endurance & r & Have you ever wanted to see how many hours you could stand watching live music indoors until you completely lost your grip on sanity? Us, too -- not that we'd ever be inclined to act on the impulse. If you want to, though, this Sunday would be a great time to do it. The CenterStage/ella's complex is staging a benefit for ... well, itself. (It's a nonprofit, you know.) Twelve bands are slated to play for eight straight hours, including many of your local faves.

Someone get Israel and Palestine to cut a record already.
