Plus, a busy week for Jay Berndt
Is that Yuletide spirit rocking your wallet this month? While the live music scene quiets down a bit, there's still plenty of quality low-dough shows around, so get out there! Last call for the REVEREND HORTON HEAT with CONTINENTAL and THE McGUNKS at Fête on THURSDAY (the 13th). Then head back there on FRIDAY (the 14th) and revel in the annual CHRISTMAS ROCK 'N' ROLL EXTRAVAGANZA, led by YELLOW SNOW (featuring ex-Kanerko frontman Al Diaz) with JAY BERNDT & THE ORPHANS and the JESS LEWIS BAND; tix are $10 at the door and proceeds will benefit the 2013 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Call the Fête concert line at 401.383.1113 for info on both shows. Also on Friday, HAZE and SPIRITUAL REZ play the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740); a king-sized drunk-punk throwdown features THE BRUNT OF IT (celebrating a new album release) with BURNING STREETS, STRAY BULLETS, THE PITY WHORES, and more (401.270.1801). Then cruise over to Dusk for some serious booty shaking ably guided by ROUTE .44 along with BOO CITY and CONSUELO'S REVENGE kicking it off around 10 pm ($7, 401.714.0444).
