The Funky Sixteens, $10, 9 p.m., Dec. 26

Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 9 p.m., $10

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, etc. But that week after, before you ring in the New Year and the house is quiet and no one really expects you to get anything done: kind of better, right? Kick off that blissful week of few obligations with a night of funk rock 'n' roll brought to you by local supergroup the Funky Sixteens. Featuring former members of 2Me and Cuesta Drive—and special guests the City of Trees Brass Band (pictured) and Dennis Austin—the night will also feature the Diva Kings and Out of Place. Unfortunately, eggnog will still be an unsuitable beverage for the next 11 months. 2708 J Street,
