Instead of celebrating Jesus Christ on Christmas (does anyone do that anymore?), celebrate The Smiths on Smithmas! There will be live covers of The Smiths and Morrissey songs by local bands and DJ sets all night (playing the Smiths and Morrissey, of course). And proceeds from the event go to The Fairness Campaign, a nonprofit advocacy group that will need all the money it can get to fight for equality under the He Who Must Not Be Named administration.
