Join us for a concert that will boost your holiday cheer into overdrive. NOISE FOR TOYS will feature your favorite local Chicago acts pulling out all the stops to get you out of your seasonal depression and aid local charities in the process.

Bring a packaged toy to be donated to Chicago children in need this season and receive *HALF OFF* admission. That’s right. Spend half the money you would be spending to see this show on a toy and we will reward you for it (so will your conscience). Monetary proceeds will also go to help various Chicago-based children’s charities.

The Scissors Return To Brauerhouse.

The Brauerhouse burned down in 2008 leaving a huge void in the suburbs for live music. Brauerhouse was home for The Scissors and a wide variety of punk/rock/metal/ska and rap acts. We’ve been waiting to hear if Steve would rebuild.

Brauerhouse Lombard opened a few months ago and The Scissors are returning on June 24th with The Shakes. It’s going to be one hell of a night. Don’t miss it.
