Now is your last chance to escape the house before the old ball and chain of holiday obligation weighs you down. Quick! Leave while no one's looking. El Monstero starts their string of sold out holiday shows this weekend, but if you don't already have a ticket, have fun getting scalped on the streets outside the Pageant. There's great indie-rock, doom-metal and EDM this all weekend long, so pick your poison and get your fill before those awkward catch-up sessions with your estranged cousins.
