Join folk three-piece The Spring Standards as they rock Arden Gild Hall tonight for their Boxing Day concert. Clearly, they have an affinity for the under-appreciated holiday since it’s their sixth annual show in honor of it. They’re a pretty gifted bunch as all three members are songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. The Spring Standards were named one of Pure Volume’s Best Unsigned Artists of 2012 and released their first live album Live in Delaware (recorded at last year’s Boxing Day concerts) earlier this year. Watch “Only Skin” below and get tickets for either their early set, their late set (or both) here .
