Some holiday traditions help us get in the spirit (cookie baking parties), some are hardships we must endure (office holiday parties) and some are there to remind us that December is a good month for rocking out: the Fourth Annual Hot Dog Sandwich Holiday show.
The duo of Bart and Steff Bell work well together, both as a happily married couple and as the members of Hot Dog Sandwich. After making their own fliers, recording their own CDs and even printing their own T-shirts for more than 15 years as punk/rock/cover band, they know how to throw a party. They've invited musical friends The Meatballs, Doubting Thomas and the Heretics, J.A.R., Ben the Drunken Poet and more to help them--and you--get in a celebratory mood, regardless of whether you're excited about the holidays or just wishing it was already Jan. 2.
Monday, Dec. 21, 9 p.m., FREE. Liquid Lounge, 405 S. Eighth St., 208-287-5379.
