Wolf-Face headlines Soundbar's Punk Rock Xmas this week


In a little-known postscript to a short and bloody career known for outrage and provocation, the Sex Pistols (Sid Vicious edition, at the very height of their infamy) threw a Christmas party and benefit for the children of striking miners in the town of Huddersfield in 1977. So it was that their final U.K. gig was an uncharacteristically sweet affair, with children pogoing along to the Pistols and John Lydon handing out presents. It was a textbook example of how to merge the nihilism of punk with an imperative of treating fellow humans with, um, humanity and warmth. The fourth annual Punk X-Mas follows in that example. You’ll get sets from St. Pete’s Wolf-Face, as well as locals Teen Agers, the 4Js and the first Overdale show in years, as well as comedy from Big Tim, Heather Shaw and more.
