Santah Live

2011 might be winding down, but the local music scene is still going strong in the year’s final days. For proof, look no further than the bill of SantahIn Tall Buildings, and The Island Of Misfit Toys, happening tonight, Thursday, December 22nd at Lincoln Hall (tickets still on-sale).

Opening the night is The Island Of Misfit Toys, who saw the release of their Bear Hair full length on Tandem Shop this year, as well as the successful funding of the band’s eastbound tour a few months back. Check out the eclectic pop of Bear Hair cut “Beginnings of a Beard” and a recent preview of the band’s live show in the videos below, following the CVU podcast from this year with the group’s Anthony Sanders.

In Tall Buildings also had a good year. Following the 2010 release of its self-titled full length, the adult alternative act made the rounds in 2011, from performing at the Tomorrow Never Knows festival and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion to releasing a two-track single on Record Store Day. Check out “The Way To A Monster’s Lair” below, following the CVU podcast featuring ITB’s Erik Hall, recorded on Record Store Day.
