Well, since we aren't involved in the RFT's reindeer games, might I recommend catching some of our pals...the Monads and/or Kentucky Knife Fight are worth witnessing...

and you should do yer best to catch Theodore prior to Fred's set...

You should also make yourself aware of the Ditty Bops, playing on a completely different day in a completely different part of town...same could be said of the Shack Shakers...

Word to the absurd.
