Rock for Socks with Pictures of Then
Originally scheduled over the December holiday season (and unfortunately falling on the night of the Great Snow Monstrosity of 2010), this powerhouse lineup of up-and-coming Twin Cities bands playing for a good cause has been relocated to Cause this weekend. "When we first started working on putting this show together we decided it could be a great opportunity to take advantage of the holiday season and do something to help give back a little, so we came up with Rock for Socks," explains Pictures of Then lead singer Casey Call. "The idea is pretty simple, bring a new—yes new—pair of socks to donate at the show and get in for half price." Three bucks for these four rock bands ain't bad: Rounding out the bill with headliners Pictures of Then (pictured) are orchestral rock octet Me & My Arrow, Milwaukee's I'm Not a Pilot, and Picked to Click finalists and notorious rabble-rousers the Goondas.
