    The 15th Annual HAPPY SKALIDAYS is upon us! Get stoked and mark your holiday calendar, this year's installment of Skalidays takes place at The Camel and all of the proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of a local Richmond family who have a child affected by the disease. ******THE BANDS****** 30 Day Warranty - Richmond pop-punk from yesteryear... these Southside stalwarts toured and blasted every pop-punk bill in Richmond from 1998-2003. This is their only scheduled reunion show, and as some of our oldest friends in the scene, we're stoked to have them open Skalidays 15. 6TA - 6 Track Amateur hails from the river city and brings an original sound, style and stage show. This one man musical assault combines elements of punk rock, theater and comedy with silly string, a fully automated cardboard-cutout band and party antics galore. Bring goggles. Toxic Moxie - Richmond's powerful, female-fronted dance punk misfits bring smart songwriting alongside giant disco-rock anthems in a gritty, glam-punk style. DANCE! Signal Fire - Wilmington, NC based roots reggae/rock outfit Signal Fire will be bringing their rocking southern beachtown reggae to Skalidays for a second year in a row. If you didn't catch them last year, Signal Fire melds traditional roots reggae grooves and crushing rock bombast behind the gravelly, soulful voice of chesterfield native Sean Gregory. Murphy's Kids is proud to host this holiday extravaganza and will be rocking a set list chock full of MK crowd favorites along with some new surprises (both musical and otherwise). Requests are always welcome! $8 advance $10 day of show
