It may be the season of giving, but there's nothing wrong with getting something in return for your kindness. This year, support your local independent record store and reward yourself an evening of kick-ass live music. Burger Records, one of the finest local purveyors of vinyl LPs and rock miscellany, is throwing a party at Alex's Bar featuring bands from its music label. King Tuff has the top spot with their reverb-laden, acoustic-infused classic rock. Other bands include Pangea, Underground Railroad to Candyland and Summer Twins as well as some Burger DJs. Be sure to wear your Burger pin and get two dollars off the cost of admission. Give a little, get a little.
