Well, sadly, the rumors that have been swirling about for a while now are indeed true. Autokinoton is about to be put to rest. Despite issuing word this past summer that there wouldn't be one, the act's final show is slated for Saturday, February 28, at 3 Kings Tavern, with Kingdom of Magic, Spirit of the Stairs and Space in Time. A moment of silence seems to be in order. Godspeed, gentlemen. You had a great run and will be sorely missed.
On the other side of town, meanwhile, the Toad Tavern is hosting a food drive benefiting FightWithFood.org. A ton of acts are slated to appear, including Rus Profit, Paul Garcia, Vagrant Son, New Generation, Lude 33, Jayson Morgan, A.P.O.S.T.L.E., No Bueno, Rob Drabkin, Rubber Planet and more. A lot of bands to fit into one night, right? See that's the thing: This show kicks off at noon and will go until close. There's a five-dollar cover, but if you bring in two cans of food or more, you'll get a couple of bucks off admission.
