Sacramento's Latin Christmas Jam
6 p.m., Dec. 20, Ace of Spades, $20
In the song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” there are supposed to be “seven geese-a-laying” on the seventh day. Why not trade those seven geese for “five bands-a-playing,” and then dance to the sounds of old-school R&B and Latin rhythms? Headliners Midnight Players will bring old-school favorites to get you moving and grooving. Inner Soul mixes it up with Carole King, War, Culture Club and other dance favorites. Los Elegantes, 2001 Sammies Hall of Famers, play smooth Latin originals. Sacred Fire Band celebrates the music of Santana and Luv Taxi will drive it home with more Latin beats. Bring your ID and dancing shoes for this 21-and-over show. 1417 R Street, www.aceofspades.com.
