You have an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone at this event which goes at the Exchange on Friday Dec. 11. Not only will you be treated to some quality music by local artists, you’ll also be helping out two local charities.

First, the music. The country rock trio the Snake Oil Salesmen are organizing the event, and they’ll be joined by  Accomplice, Bad Comrade, Val Halla, Hello, Lady, InfoRed, Bats Out!, Christopher “Tiny” Matchett and Hugh Poorman. Doors are at 7:30 p.m. at the Exchange, with the show starting at 8 p.m., and admission is $10.

Gifts of non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys are being collected, and they’ll go to the Regina Food Bank and Santa’s Anonymous.

Here’s a recent video addressing the residential school system by InfoRed with guest vocals by Sister Says
