[tonight in Allston] Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys record release @ BHM

Totally intended on giving this more love on the blog yesterday, but time is a cruel mistress that bows down for no suddenly-fairly-useless music writer. However, I did pimp Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys new record Soft Time Traveler in my recent Boston Phoenix spring preview, and tonight the collective is at Brighton Music Hall in Allston to give it a proper birth. So…

WALTER SICKERT & THE ARMY OF BROKEN TOYS :: Late last year, Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys established a goal of $6600 for new record Soft Time Traveler. Five days before Christmas, the goal was reached, and at press time, the self-described steam-crunk collective had raised nearly three times that, with 248 backers. That’s nearly enough to fill Brighton Music Hall. But we’re not sweating it; support from the Field Effect, Ruby Rose Fox, and the Rationales is enough to make this one monster Boston-soundtracked Saturday-night throwdown. :: March 23 :: Brighton Music Hall, 158 Brighton Ave, Allston :: 9 pm :: $14 :: 617.779.0140 or ticketmaster.com
