If you’re craving festivity that doesn’t glorify the cult of Christmas as commodity, grab your earplugs and motor down to Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Friday, Dec. 20 for the 2013 Anti-Christmas show. Starting at 9pm, this 21-and-over festival of metal will reverberate those holiday blues right out of your sugar plum-eschewing head. Self-described “Old Town grind” fivesome Laughing Dog leads the humbug fest, and Largactyl (feat. members of Logical Nonsense and Grimple), Coloradoan foursome Burns Like Hell (feat. members of Fanatics) and American death groove outfit Sorry Guero follow suit. If you’re feeling more Krampus than Kris Kringle, this is your show, hesher.
