Original TIS music - new and old will be metamorphosed into polka acoustic versions that are sure to bring a tear and a jolly.

"But, seriously...be there…because it's free and you can help a good cause. The Infinite Staircase, in coordination with Uncle Bourbon’s, have started their own ‘Toys For Tots’ program where between now and December 23rd, anyone who brings an unwrapped toy to Uncle Bourbon’s (located at 691 Bay Street – Staten Island, New York 10304) will receive a coupon redeemable for 10% off their entire order starting in January 2011.
