So its coming up on serious holiday time but there's still lots of awesome stuff happening out there....
This Friday is a winner - start the night off checking out the closing reception of Damn It!!!

Just say WBCN and the fond memories start. Now, there is a movie in the works about the early days of WBCN. They are raising money via Kickstarter...go to www.KickstartWBCN.com to make a tax-deductible pledge.
Doesn't look like there's much going on for the week of Christmas I mean the clubs totally close! But on Friday the 23rd at O'Brien's there's Sasquatch & The Sickabillys and the Mishits a Misfits tribute band (THAT should be good for a laff!)
And there is Andrea Gillis Band free at Toad in Porter Square on the 26th
and then we have New Year's Eve
and the biggest celebration in town is First Night: $18!!!! You can buy the tix at loads of places around town like Shaw's Tedeschi's, and Au Bon Pain. But check this out!!: Buttons are available now at a special web price of $15 only at www.firstnight.org through Dec. 22.
The Upper Crust bless us all with a royal evening to usher in a new year at Church....yup it's that time and this year's show is a spectacular line up with The Upper Crust, Sidewalk Driver and Gene Dante & the Future Starlets - wow!!
But the Middle East is giving them a run for their money this NYE with an awesome show downstairs: Mellow Bravo, Township, Planetoid, Cocked N Loaded and The Grinds - and this show is 12 bucks instead of $25 you'll have to cough up yet again at Church
