Celebrate the holiday spirit with local pretty-pop pros, Testa Rosa, as they re-create holiday favorites and showcase their originals along with John Sieger and guests which include Atomic Records’ Rich Menning and The Celebrated Workingman’s Mark Waldoch. The spirit of the holiday isn’t solely in the music — the show’s cover charge will go to help The Hunger Task Force of Greater Milwaukee.

Oh  My God + Guido’s Racecar, Quon Poppers, 10 p.m. @ The Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth)
With dramatic vocals and charged up energy, Chicago’s Oh My God brings a prog-y quality to their music filled with hook after hook. Locals Guido’s Racecar mix the sounds of The Stooges and The Pixies, and add Roni Allwaise’s strong vocals to create a riveting rock sound. With Quon Poppers.

Saturday, December 27th
2nd Annual Milwaukee Air Guitar Showdown, 10 p.m. @ Stonefly Brewery (735 E. Center Street)
Air guitar may be a laughable activity for some, but quite a few people take it seriously — enough to practice their silent skills for competition. Join in the fun, or watch the heavy competition. Head-banging not required, but highly recommended.

Hayward Williams + Everett Thomas, Gabriel Reed, 9:30 p.m. @ Linneman’s (1001 E. Locust Street)
Hayward Williams may sing simplistic Americana-styled songs, but in his heart lies a bit of a rocker and a nomad. Milwaukee’s Williams has traveled Europe, playing troubadour with his soulful voice that sounds wise well beyond his years. With Everett Thomas and Gabriel Reed.
