What you talkin' 'bout, Santa?


Free PBRs for two hours? A ghetto Santa with gifts? And offbeat covers of traditional Christmas tunes? What more could a naughty little boy or girl ask for during the holiday season? Tampa's hottest teen music outlet, Skatepark of Tampa (SPOT), is bringing a touch of its urban feel to the Crowbar in Ybor City for its fourth annual Ghetto Christmas Party. This event features local bands History, Vaginasore Jr. and Nessie (with CL's own Scott Harrell fronting, playing punked-up holiday tunes), and a "shit-faced dance party" from midnight to 3 a.m. And you thought we'd lost all sight of the real meaning of Christmas. Sat., Dec. 23, 8 p.m., Crowbar, 1812 17th St. N., Ybor City, free admission (18 and up), 813-241-8600.
