Despite the humid 90-degree weather, Christmas is coming early this year. Even in vibrantly tacky red and green holiday costumes, members of the Christmas parody band Bad Santa and the Angry Elves are still professional quality performers who have been making music and bringing a rowdy musical holiday spirit to crowds since before 2011. There won't be traditional Christmas carols per se, but there will be rock & roll versions of classics like "Santa Baby" and punk rock originals like "Jump in My Sleigh" and "Magic Santa." Plus, their holiday-themed "covers" of songs by the likes of the Ramones and Rage Against the Machine are not to be missed, even if they rely more on holiday spirit than technical prowess. It's gonna be too hot for tacky Christmas sweaters, so break out the holiday-themed underwear instead to fit right in.
