Who really has those Hallmark Christmases with crackling fireplaces and Bing Crosby on the record player? Gear up for the hallowed days of fending off that creepy uncle and trying not to smirk at your grandma's annual public meltdown by enjoying an evening with Trailer Trash. One dollop of hell-bent honky-tonk with a dash of dirty garage rock, these locals have been offering holiday caterwauls in a friendly, if dysfunctional, manner for fifteen years running. Forget "Away in a Manger." Trailer Trash's "Please Daddy Don't Get Drunk This X-mas" is far more appropriate. They also lovingly pervert old-time classics, such as their version of "Do You Hear What I Hear" with a spliced-in Kinks riff. With two Christmas albums under their belt, Trailer Trash will provide enough wacky holiday cheer to keep you boot-scooting until February, when you still haven't managed to take down that damn garland. 21+.
Saturdays, 9 p.m.; Fri., Dec. 19, 9 p.m. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Dec. 20, 2008
