Ugly Christmas Sweater Live Band Karaoke
The Butchertown Social
No cover | 10 p.m.-1 a.m.
Sing your karaoke favorites, not with a lame machine, but a live band. Wear your ugly Christmas sweater, too. Hopefully its not ripped from all the ragers you’ve worn that thing for. Oh, you probably own multiple, you crazy kid. Karaoke sign up starts at 10 p.m.
SATURDAY – DEC. 22
Holiday Laser Dome
Holiday Village at Big Four Bridge
Adults $12-$15, Children $7-$10
Have you noticed that bubble-dome thing that looks like something from The “X-Files” under the Big Four Bridge? Don’t worry, genetically-mutated bees carrying an alien-spawning virus aren’t going to be released from it. No, it’s an inaugural holiday light show featuring lasers set to holiday music, with animations and aerial effects. You’ve got to appreciate original ways of celebrating the holidays, and this half-hour show is one for the whole family. Plus, the Holiday Village will have food, vendors and drinks (and adult drinks), plus music, inflatables and all sorts of holiday fun.
WYD / GRLwood / Soft Self Portraits
The Care Less Lounge
$5-$7 | 10:15 p.m.-1 a.m.
Three bands are rocking The Care Less Lounge on the first floor of Barbarella this weekend. WYD, a queer, electro-folk group, is swinging in from Columbus, Ohio, while GRLwood and Self Portraits, scream pop and dream pop, respectively, represent Louisville talent.
SUNDAY – DEC. 23
House is Home for the Holidays
