Saturday: Kingsdown, Free Micah, Belair

  • Kingsdown headlines a benefit for Toys for Tots Saturday night at Revolution.

8:30 p.m. Revolution. $5 with new toy, $8 without.

Here's another chance to check out some of that rock 'n' roll music the kids keep talking about while also doing a small turn to help out the less fortunate among us. Is there anything sadder than the thought of a boy or girl going without a present this Christmas because mom or dad lost a job or had to put every penny toward paying the mortgage and bills?

This is the third year that indie rawk outfit Kingsdown has hosted a Toys for Tots benefit to help make sure that all kids in Central Arkansas get a toy for Christmas, regardless of their circumstances. It's been a big year for the band, playing supporting slots alongside such acts as Poison, REO Speedwagon, Jet and others, so the group — along with many other bands, venues, promoters and others — is giving something back.

The folk-rock free spirits in Free Micah and the pop-punk quartet Belair are also playing the show.
