Sun, Dec 19, Snowfall Xmas Party
Shady Lady Saloon, 8 p.m., no cover
Sacramento, CA 95816
It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. Depending on your perspective, this could be a totally wonderful thing. For others, however, Christmas music is akin to nails on a chalkboard—painful and gratingly difficult to get out of your head. Whether you’re a happy Santa or mean ol’ Grinch, though, Shaun Slaughter’s Snowfall Xmas Party (pictured) should fill your Christmas cup with cheer. Enjoy special party drinks—spiked hot cocoa! Hot toddies!—as you groove to a wealth of cool Xmas tunes; we’re pretty sure there won’t be an ear-damaging Perry Como tune in the bunch. Festive holiday attire recommended—ugly Christmas sweaters are totally optional. 1409 R Street, www.shadyladybar.com.
