Weekend Round-Up: Up on the Rooftop Style



Since contributor Lance Conzett has us pretty thoroughly covered on the "End of the World" tip, I figured we'd go with the old standby Santa theme. Why the hell not, right? Happy holidays, everyone. We'll be taking Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off, but we'll be back next week with some posts here and there. If you're traveling, travel safe.

But for those who'll be remaining in town, there's actually a pretty promising spread of shows going on this weekend. Tonight you've got: The Protomen and Uncle Skeleton at 12th & Porter; Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit with Andrew Combs at Mercy; Tower Defense, Forget Cassettes and more next door at The High Watt; that big old blowout at Oak Valley Lanes featuring Chris Crofton, Majestico, Clear Plastic Masks, Richie and more; the first night of the Beatles vs. Stones tribute at The Basement; the KDSML Review at Exit; the very intriguing "Rap Night" at The Stone Fox; and plenty more. Tomorrow you're looking at: the second night of the Beatles/Stones showdown at The Basement; Thelma and the Sleaze's soiree at Exit/In featuring Dave Cloud and more; and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by me, since music listings editor Adam "Naughty or Nice" Gold is on vacay (or perhaps making the rounds in his sleigh) — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a festive — and safe — weekend. Merry Christmas!
