Sat., Dec. 15, the Grouch

Ace of Spades, 6:30 p.m., $20

He doesn't care if you've been naughty or nice, but the Grouch is surely returning to Sacramento yet again to mix it up this holiday season. This year, he's back on the road with Mistah F.A.B., Eligh, DJ Fresh and others for the How the Grouch Stole Christmas tour. With 15 years of music-making experience, the Grouch is one of the founding members of the hip-hop crew Living Legends, and he's also recorded albums as a solo artist. His latest, this year's Three Eyes Off the Time, is the Grouch's 10th independent release, and it doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon. 1417 R Street,
