The creative kids over at Covington’s Powerhouse Factories celebrate another year of superior design with their annual Holiday Rock Poster Party 6 p.m.-midnight Friday, a gathering that never fails to yield at least one gift for the discerning music lover on my Christmas list. Creators of crafty, colorful Rock gig posters for nearly a decade, the Powerhouse crew will make available for purchase 11 new prints (prices range from $10-$50) it crafted for such bands as Blitzen Trapper, Butthole Surfers (are they still kicking?), Kings of Leon and Sunny Day Real Estate. And what would a Rock poster party be without music: locals A Decade to Die For! provide an acoustic set. (No word on whether the band will throw in a holiday tune or two, but I’m voting for their version of “Blue Christmas”.) Oh, and the first 33 people through the door get free poster. How’s that for holiday spirit?
