Here's another chance to check out some of that rock 'n' roll music the kids keep talking about while also doing a small turn to help out the less fortunate among us.

This is the third year that indie rawk outfit Kingsdown has hosted a Toys for Tots benefit to help make sure that all kids in Central Arkansas get a toy for Christmas, regardless of their circumstances. It's been a big year for the band, playing supporting slots alongside such acts as Poison, REO Speedwagon, Jet and others, so the group — along with many other bands, venues, promoters and others — is giving something back.
