The mightiest of mightiest, the holiest of holies, the sexiest of sexies, the lords of lords, the hosts of hosts, the best damn band in all the land: The Lawrence Arms are once again coming to bestow holiday cheer on all for the sixth annual War On X-Mas.
This year’s all-digital Holiday Special (those are always good, right?) will have guest appearances from Tim McIlrath, Matt Skiba, Brian Fallon, Dan Andriano, Worriers (solo), Kyle Kinane, Sam Russo, Sincere Engineer, and much more holiday weirdness. So… don’t miss it! Because tickets are ON SALE NOW.
Tune in on Friday, December 11—unlike most punk shows, this one will actually start at 7:00 p.m. CT sharp. Proceeds will go towards the Greater Chicago Food Depository (AKA the Chicago Food Bank). And in case all of that hasn’t injected you with enough holiday cheer, the one and only Brendan Kelly has described it (somewhat) beautifully for us:
