Dec. 17, 2014 — Not-So-Silent Night at the Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., Tempe, is going to be a stupendous holiday punk rock show. The Mantooth Group, Relaxd, and Yucca teamed up and brought out a ton of big names for an all-day party for the low cost of $10. This is a ‘can’t miss’ event on Friday, Dec. 19.

Nekromantix, The Adolescents, Ten Foot Pole, Masked Intruder, Left Alone, Broloaf, Sanitation Squad, Gentlemen Prefer Blood, Rotten Youth, We Might Be Wasted, and Lightspeedgo are going to be punking it up at for the masses. This lineup is completely ridiculous. Masked Intruder, the always-masked band that supposedly met in prison, is particularly fun stuff. The show is 21 and up and doors open at 5 p.m.

Thursday, Dec. 18

Lawn Gnome Publishing, 905 N. Fifth St., Phoenix, has changed the name of their Thursday evening event from the Wikimedia Show to PEP (Phoenix Educational Programming) Rally, but they are bringing the same level of entertainment and information. This week’s theme will be Christmas with presenters Ernesto Moncada, Andy Warpigs, Dan Hull, Manuel Arena, High School Vocal Ensemble, and others to discuss all manner of subjects related to Christmas, including “Understanding Krampus” in different mediums ranging from music, to comedy, to spoken word. The show is all ages, begins at 8 p.m. and admission is $5.

Friday, Dec. 19

“Monitor The Sky And Await Further Instructions.” That’s what it says on the NXOEED // Transmigration flier. It is so cryptic and enticing that one can’t help but look up. But that’s what artist James B. Hunt has been doing all year, looking up and trying to do better. His fliers, that he leaves EVERYWHERE that read “NXOEED has hidden a painting within 100 yards” turn everyday life into a treasure hunt, and his hidden gallery and treasure hunt projects turn fine art into an adventure. The hunt is free to participate in, all ages, and it begins at 5:30 p.m. Visit for more information.

Punkd and Rocker-Garage House Party Benefit show, no clue what they are benefiting, but hell it’s punk rock, it could be a benefit to by 40 ouncers for the party. What’s the difference, it’s still going to be a dirty, gritty punk rock house show featuring The Blissins, Mesa Ugly Punx Manoz Zuzias, Enemies of Promise, and Downplay. The show is all ages and has a $5 suggested donation. It’s a house show so find a friend, and find them. But always come correct.

It’s going to be Krampus Appreciation Night at Phoenix’s most “unholy” variety show Firestage at The Firehouse Gallery, 1015 N. First St., Phoenix, host Ernasty will be leading an eclectic bunch of performers in celebrating the often forgotten legend of Christmas lore that puts particularly naughty children in his sack and later eats them.  The show is all ages, has a $5 suggested donation, and begins at 8 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 20

The Yucca Tap Room’s Annual Xmas Formal is going to be kicking off at 8 p.m. with a spectacular lineup that on any other night would easily be a $15 dollar ticket. But for the Christmas season is coming to the Valley completely free of charge. decker., Dry River Yacht Club, Mouse Powell, Sister Lip, and DJ Ruebot will be providing the entertainment for this 21 and up event at the Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., Tempe. This is a great show to go to while getting a good picture of what bands in Phoenix on the verge of blowing up look like.

Seven Minutes … Under The Mistletoe is a variety show that takes place at Space 55, 636 E. Pierce St,. Phoenix. It’s usually called Seven Minutes in Heaven but for the yuletide season they are changing it up. The premise of the show is that each act whether an actor, comedian, poet, or whatever else, has to fill seven minutes with whatever they do. The show is hosted by Leslie Barton, and is all ages. It’s $10 at the door.

Tuesday, Dec. 23

Liam & the Ladies are going to be headlining an evening evening at the Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave., Phoenix, beginning at 8 p.m. Joining them will be JJCNV, Emby Alexander, and The Sara McAlister Trio. The show is 21 and up and tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. This is a multi genre showcase of some of Phoenix’s best bands and a great evening to check out one of downtown Phoenix's best venues.
