One of my favorite parts of the holidays are the Christmas shows. Nothing says “happy holidays” like your favorite bands coming together to play music together - it’s the most wonderful time of the year, right?
Come Dec. 30, Man Overboard will be playing a Lost Tape Collective holiday show alongside Fireworks and Real Friends in Philadelphia.
If you can’t make that show, you’ll have another chance to catch Real Friends on a short holiday tour with Knuckle Puck and Light Years. This includes stops in Cleveland, Indianapolis, and, of course, their hometown of Chicago. Real Friends will also be making an appearance at The Starting Line’s holiday show in Sayreville, NJ on Dec. 29, alongside Major League and Vinnie Caruana of I Am The Avalanche.
The Wonder Years will also be heading out on a four-day acoustic holiday tour. Surprise surprise, all the dates are sold out - but if you have a ticket, have a great time!
If you want to catch Fall Out Boy on tour this winter they’ll be performing at a number of Jingle Ball dates this year, including in St. Paul, New York City, and Boston.
You can catch Vanna alongside State Champs on the Christmas Vacation 2013 tour, making stops in Howell, NJ, New York City, Philadelphia and Worcester.
Lemuria will also be doing a short holiday run that crosses into Canada.
If these shows aren’t enough to get you in the spirit, Fearless Records has released Punk Goes Christmas, feturing covers and originals from musicians ranging from William Beckett to Set It Off.
In holiday tradition, many artists have been releasing their version of ugly holiday sweaters on their sites so don’t miss out on enjoying the comfort of your favorite band on a cold winter’s night and a chance to get in the spirit this year.
Check out our staff playlist of Christmas songs here.
Whether you make it out to a show or not, have a great holiday season!
It’s Dec. 1, which means the holiday season is officially here. Before you go crazy listening to the same five songs on repeat in malls, stores and restaurants, check out our team’s playlist featuring The Maine (of course - it is Dec. 1, after all), Set It Off, All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance and more!
