The holidays for some are a nightmare by themselves; we all need to blow off a little steam around this time of year. Stasiu's helps with this demand thanks to the Nightmare Before Christmas party. For a mere $5 you can stuff your stocking with tons of live music, including rockers Ouija Radio, the Seawhores, the Soft Rocks, and others. Santa shouldn't be the only one laughing this time of year, either; between music acts there will be laughs for all thanks to the Minneapolis Comedy Death Squad. Other debauchery scheduled includes DJ sets, drinking like a fish, and perhaps some cigarette breaks in the snow (we promise we won't tell Mom or Santa). 21+.
