On Saturday, December 16th the Abbey Lounge hosts the Noise 25th Anniversary Holiday Bash. That’s right. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS of covering local music. For such a huge milestone, Noise publisher T Max is throwing a seriously cool holiday party.

Here’s the scoop: the music starts on the Abbey pub stage at 9pm with Uncle Shoe & VoigtDog, then moves to the main stage with Angeline at 9:30, followed by A.K.A.C.O.D, and The Rudds headline at 11:30.

The tongue-in-cheek, charmingly unkempt duo of Uncle Shoe & VoigtDog delivers a fresh blend of beat poetry and old timey tunefulness. “Just watchin’ these guys makes me smile,” says T Max. (http://www.mattsamolis.com)

Angeline is a soulful, folkie band fronted by the dynamic duo of Linda Viens and Emily Grogan. “This band is capturing something very special and I predict a successful future for them,” says T Max. (http://www.myspace.com/angelinemusic)

A.K.A.C.O.D. is the new smoky, psychedelic rock trio featuring Morphine/Twinemen saxophonist Dana Colley, Bourbon Princess vocalist/bassist Monique Ortiz, and drummer Larry Dersch (Binary System). (http://www.myspace.com/akacod)

The Rudds bring the party with their sexy twist of '70s classic rock and Prince-influenced sleaze, guaranteed to steer the 25th anniversary holiday bash into full-on dance floor debauchery. (http://www.therudds.net/)
