Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Mark your calendars for December 16 if you like State and Madison, Archie Powell & The Exports, The Noise FM, or The Scissors. They're taking over The Beat Kitchen in an event called Noise for Toys in partnership with the hunky US Marines to benefit Toys For Tots. All you need to do to hear these bands pull out some rad Christmas covers is bring $5 and a toy for a tot. [Racked Wire]
