For Against box set out Dec. 3

* Nearly a year after originally being slated for release, the oft-delayed For Against vinyl box set is finally available for purchase in time for Christmas. Hook that special family member who remembers and cherishes this seminal Lincoln post-punk, whose melodic bliss made them an important band that helped morph shoegaze's sonic overdrive into elegant dream-pop soundscapes.  New York-based label Captured Tracks is releasing a deluxe vinyl-only package, highlighting the band's three albums. The box set, fully remastered and packed with a bonus booklet, is being offered in a limited run of 1,000 units. Expect this item on select record store shelves and on Captured Tracks online store, where you can already pre-order it, beginning Tuesday, December 3rd. Don't be a grinch and consider buying one for a favorite Reader scribe as well. Even columnist Tim McMahan would be thrilled with a Christmas gift.

* It went down to the wire, but Brad Hoshaw and the Seven Deadlies met their $7,500 Kickstarter fundraising goal. The monthlong campaign let donors provide the money needed to finish mixing and mastering the local Americana band's forthcoming album, which should now be out by spring 2014. The band's fans contributed $7,790 total during the fundraising period.

* Snake Island! is hosting and headlining a special event that the band is calling the Acid Test. The show takes place Friday, December 13th at Venue 51, 1951 St. Mary's Ave. Expect a whole host of psychedelic projections and other headtrip visuals to accompany the night's music. Worried Mothers and Dereck Higgins will also perform. Higgins, a longtime fixture on Omaha's music scene, will also be spinning vinyl selections from his expansion record collection as part of the evening's festivities.
