Solo Viaje & The Beerslayers Record Release Party
Solo Viaje has a huge, old school, almost Wolfmother-ish sound that can't be underestimated. Their dark, bluesy, stoner rock vibe makes for one of the best local band live shows, and a CD release party seems like just the place to become familiar with them because, eventually, you will be. Get ready for face melting. 8:30 pm. Thursday, Dec. 10. SOBA, 945 NW Bond St. No cover.
Blood on the Dance Floor
Nothing like some screamo electro-pop to get us all in the mood for the holiday season. A Blood on the Dance Floor show is unlike any show you will see this year with their theatrically dark and broody emo side contrasting with their glam/goth side to make the entire experience a dizzying study in contrasts. Go get weird. 7 pm. Wednesday, Dec. 9. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $15
Straight out of North Carolina, this four- piece takes the best of Appalachian folk and bluegrass and puts their own unique spin on it. Their sound is wholly traditional, while also having a modern songwriting style that allows their music to not only be accessible to a younger audience, but fully entrenched in a timeless quality as well. 8 pm. Tuesday, Dec. 8. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8-$12
