Fri, July 15, The Yule Logs
Luigi’s Fun Garden, 8:30 p.m., $6
Sacramento, CA 95814
By now, summer has settled into Sacramento like a hot, smothering wool blanket. If you find yourself in need of a midsummer’s night malaise-buster, check out this Xmas in July show headlined by the aptly named Yule Logs. The Chico-based act, billing itself as the “hardest working band in snow business,” crafts smart Christmas-themed garage pop on tracks like “That Girl [for Christmas]” and “Northpole 45789.” The latter is so rich in la-la-las, it’ll make you feel as though you’re sitting in front of a cozy fireplace in your living room. Also on the bill are Uni & Her Ukelele and Musical Charis. 1050 20th Street, www.yulelogsmusic.com.
