If you’re dreading another holiday party full of ugly sweaters and Bing Crosby, you may want to swing by Will’s Pub for a holiday party that eschews everything but the egg nog. Warm up (assuming it ever gets cold) with mariachi-style punk covers from ¡Controla Esto! – the south-of-the-border version of local ska stars Control This! – along with the sex-drenched sweat-fest that Luscious Lisa provides with her party rap anthems. Brown Bag Brass Band, a New Orleans-style brass funk collective that never fails to get asses shaking, makes a rare appearance as well. Make sure to pick up a free drink ticket when you pay your cover to get a sample of the special egg nog that’s being whipped up for this show.
with Luscious Lisa, ¡Controla Esto!, the Hamiltons and Brown Bag Brass Band | 9 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org
