Holiday parties are here in full force. Good luck trying to sleep 'til 2015.


Miracle on High Street at Ace of Cups

As much as I love each of the three bands (Miranda Sound, Earwig and Comrade Question) performing at Alive's inaugural Miracle on High Street, I'd be lying if I didn't admit my most-anticipated part of the evening is seeing Brad Keefe dressed as an elf.

Damn, Girl! at Strongwater

The monthly dance party has gotten so popular, organizers are now charging a $3 cover to help ensure the venue isn't filled beyond capacity. It's that kinda jam.
