A Very Mayan Christmas

7 p.m. Friday, December 21. St. Louis Skatium, 120 Catalan Street.

As with many things masterminded by neanderthal alien band Bug Chaser, this one is kitchen-sink insanity: A Christmas cookie competition with cash prize! Roller-skating! Disco shit! The Skatium's relatively new full bar! And the St. Louis noisemaking all stars — in addition to Bug Chaser this show features Kisser, Black James, Maximum Effort, Black Panties and the Bad Dates (and possibly more). Apparently this date is significant in certain cultures as well, so if you're into hell beasts and horsemen, this might be a good place to find some like minds to roll into oblivion with.

What a Picture is Worth: Go look up Pat Grosch's poster for this one. He was named the RFT's best poster designer of 2012, and this might just be his masterpiece.
