Lounge Act Weekend: Crawling Santas is just the start

Posted By on December 16, 2011, 10:25 AM

If you've never joined the Santa Pub Crawl in downtown SLC, Friday offers another chance. And that's just the beginning of a full weekend of worthy to-dos.---


The annual Santa Pub Crawl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at Gracie's, so don some gay apparel and head on down. And even if you're too Scroogey to dress like St. Nick, it's always fun just to kick it downtown and watch Santas by the hundreds roll by. They're an impressively festive bunch of folks and they'll be all over Main Streets bars all night.

Elsewhere, the Castle of Chaos is hosting a special Xmas Mystery Theatre, where you have the chance to solve a murder. How festive!

Kingsbury Hall is hosting a Jon Schmidt Christmas, with the local fave piano plinker tickling the ivories on a slew of holiday faves.

Indie-rockers Miniature Tigers is headlining a gig at Bar Deluxe that also includes the fine local sounds of Michael Gross & the Statuettes, Black Carl and the Samuel Smith Band. Over at The State Room, you can get into the soulful songs of Ocote Soul Sounds, perhaps best known for their work with Thievery Corporation.


Big Bad Voodoo Daddy brings a swingin' sound to Christmas tunes at the Eccles Center in Park City Saturday night.

The Complex is hosting a Get Naughty Party, which is a concept I can certainly get behind, even if I can't stomach dubstep.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis bring a little hip-hop flava to In The Venue Saturday night. And Mark Dago, Chase One2 and Scenic Byway do the same at The Urban Lounge.

The highlight of Saturday must might be the annual Theta Naught Holiday Show at NoBrow Coffee & Tea; it's free and starts at 7 p.m. with the Folka Dots playing a few tunes. And if you want to bid farewell to Slowtrain Records, they're having a party Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m., featuring David Williams playing a few tunes. If you're down Provo way, check out Velour's All-Star Christmas Special, with a bunch of folks gathering to sing the songs of the season.
