It's no secret that the folks over at AllGood Cafe have always loved the band Sorta, the now-defunct Dallas supergroup that called it quits shortly after the untimely and shocking death of Dallas music legend Carter Albrecht. Since that breakup, the band's members haven't disappeared from the regional limelight, though; a number of them have been working on solo projects ever since.

Along those lines, the show booked at All Good Cafe for Thursday, December 23, was originally going to feature a song swap between former Sorta members. Yesterday, though, we found out that the show has turned into a full-blown Sorta reunion show.

The best part? There's no set price; just pay what you can. Of course, AllGood owner Mike Snider wants to remind attendees that it's still, in his words "the season of giving." So, basically, don't bogard that last bit of Christmas cash. Besides, this seems like a pretty good way to celebrate your Christmas Eve eve, anyway.

But if you'd rather celebrate your Christmas Eve eve eve, then you should head over to Trees tonight, as Parade of Flesh presents Bitter End, Will To Live, Power Trip, Messengers, End Times, and Fighting Chance. When The Nightmare closed a few weeks ago, all of the Parade of Flesh shows were scattered -- but really, Trees is probably the perfect venue for this hardcore display. Tickets are $10 at the door.
