For several kiddos this year, Santa won’t possess the stereotypical white beard, jolly smile and round belly. He’ll look more like the members of Sacramento punk/rock foursome Lonely Kings: tattoo sleeves and rocker-face scowl. The group will perform during the Rock for Tots Toy Drive at Old I. All toys rounded up will go to the Sacramento Salvation Army. Ah, such nice rockers. Also performing is Portraits of a T-Rex and Our Hometown Disaster. So there are only two choices: Be a mean-spirited hater by staying home, or buy a freaking toy and rock your ass off for the kids. 1901 10th Street, www.myspace.com/lonelykings.
