Babes In Toyland formed in Minneapolis in 1987 and had an influential run of scathing punk records before things petered out in an on-again-off-again the late 90s and early 2000s. They reunited last year and will play January 29 at the High Noon SaloonInfo/tickets

Multi-instrumentalist Troy Schafer has left Madison again since talking with us back in August, but will bring one of his projects, the heavy goth-rock outfit Wyrding, to the High Noon on December 17. The show will also feature Madison metal bands Ossuary and Tubal Cain, Madison synth-drone project Conjuror, and Chicago’s Terran WretchInfo

Recently launched Madison tape label Rare Plant will hold a live showcase on January 8 at the High Noon. The lineup hasn’t been announced yet, but we’re betting on a good one: The label, run by Proud Parents’ Claire Nelson-Lifson and Fire Retarded’s Erick Fruehling, has been busy putting out cassette albums and EPs from local punk/garage standouts like Wood Chickens, The Minotaurs, and Tarpaulin. Info

The folks who organized a multi-artist full-album cover performance of Exile On Main St. in January 2015 are at again, but this time they’ll be tacking The White Album on January 23 at the High Noon. Artists in the mix include Bucky PopeChantsNick Brown, and Anna VogelzangInfo/tickets

Baroness‘ November 29 show at The Frequency has sold out, but they’ve added an in-store at Strictly Discsearlier that day. Info
