Live Tonight: Week Of December 7th – December 13th: Happy Hanukkah!
Happy Hanukkah, y’all! Get ready for eight crazy nights (did anyone else see that movie? It’s not terrible but it sure isn’t good) and the unofficial kickoff to the holidays this December! Watch your favorite Hanukkak-themed film like Pi (okay, so it’s not technically Hanukkah related, but close enough) and blast some Hanukkah-themed thrash metal from this tiny, unknown band. But most importantly – have fun, be with those you love and support local music!

The Queers with Drop a Grand, The Cave Girls at Record Bar 8 PM $10
Do you like punk? Oh, of course you do. Then you better be at one of the last no-BS punk shows at the Record Bar this year! The Queers are a long-running punk band, formed in 1981 that still play some of the best, catchiest punk aggression you’ll find today – but it’s nothing you can’t dance to! For old-school and new-school fans alike.
