Show Announcements: How The Edge Stole Christmas, Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Eat World, Roger Waters, Inspectah Deck, Ozzy Osbourne, Seryn, Amos Lee, Crushed Stars, Glassjaw, Telegraph Canyon & more

Last Summer, 102.1 KDGE The Edge did some indie fans a solid by booking Phoenix and Metric in the middle of a mostly butt-rock lineup at Edgefest 2010.

But at this year's How The Edge Stole Christmas concert at Verizon Theatre on Saturday, December 4, the folks over at The Edge are trying to cater to a slightly more sophisticated audience while staying true to the station's '90s rock programming. And they're doing so with Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Eat World, Cage The Elephant, and Civil Twilight.

They could try getting a headliner that peaked more recently than 15 years ago, but hey, sniff sniff, at least there's no butt-rock to be found. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster for $30 to $50.

In other show announcements news, local sleepyhead Todd Gautreau, who goes by the moniker Crushed Stars, will be celebrating the release of his new record Convalescing In Braille at La Grange on Thursday, December 9. Despite his eerily brilliant tunes, Gautreau has managed to remain under the radar since the band's inception in 2000. But those who have their ear to the local music ground regard him as one of the best in town. Even better? Tickets will be free.
