Wreck the Halls 2015

KILLIGANS annual “Wreck the Halls” Christmas-time punk rawk jamboree sweater show canned food drive. That’s right, its that time of year again where we pull out all the stops and get our snow cannon warmed up and ready to blast you in the face with tons of possibly toxic snow juice! Joining us this year are our extra special friends from Chicago’s south-side 6’10! This is their first trip to our lovely city, lets show them a good time! Now confirmed is Lincolns own NIGHT PUSH! We are working with Pastor Tom at Peoples City Mission this year to provide new or gently used WINTER SOCKS to our city’s needy. As you know, our winters can be rough around here and strange as it may seem, socks are a huge need. Bring a heavier pair of winter type socks to donate and we will deliver to the mission after the show. We are hoping to get a great response from our fans (as we always do) for this years cause! In the meantime, get your best holiday themed sweater dry-cleaned and pressed and get ready to slam dance the night away! more about 6’10: https://www.facebook.com/sixtencity/info/?tab=page_info Tobin Bawinkel of Flatfoot 56, started 6’10 to go back to his musical roots in Americana and Folk music. Life can’t be all circle pits and spitting on sweaty crowds. Here is a side that is a little more lade back and thought provoking. He is joined by many talented musicians who bring much to the table as far as diversity and musical creativity. RSVP on Facebook, won’t you?... read more
