Show preview: Noise for Toys, Friday 12/16 at Beat Kitchen

By Andrew Hertzberg

Last year I had the pleasure of being introduced to Archie Powell and the Exports at their annual holiday show at the Darkroom. Aside from adding revved up live energy to their already stellar album Skip Work, along with a few Christmas covers, the fellas threw vanity to the wind and dressed up in red onesies while rocking the night away. Not only did that cement them as a band I needed to see again, but I knew I wouldn’t want to miss another holiday show after a spectacle like that. This year promises to be even better with the Dad Rock / Not Dad Rock four piece playing along with the Scissors, the Noise FM, and the show being headlined by State and Madison. Local pop-rock goodness all around. As the evening is called the Noise for Toys charity event, bringing a sealed toy will get you half off the ticket price. As if that weren’t enough, all four bands roamed the streets of Chicago looking for a drunk Santa. Huh? Watch below then follow the directions. As for the show, you can catch the fun tomorrow night Friday December 16th at the Beat Kitchen (8:30, 17+, $10 / $5 with packaged toy).
