Braid Turner Hall - Milwaukee, WI 12/22/2011

Braid hit Turner Hall with fellow Illinois rockers The Smoking Popes. The night was a special one with toy donations being taken at the door for Toys for Tots. The support from their Midwest fans showed last Thursday night as they had enough toys to fill two cars with toys for local Milwaukee children. The toys went to the Milwaukee Chapter of United Way who help local families receive the gifts for Christmas. If that weren’t enough, they also raised another $200 in donations through poster sales from that night.
