Friday, Dec. 5: It's First Friday, so wander around downtown, eat and drink for free, and check out some local art and music. After that, head to Metro Pulse's Christmas Party at the Valarium with the Dirty Guv'nahs, the Cornbred Blues Band, and DJ Slink.
Saturday, Dec. 6: The Square Room is hosting its first show on Saturday night with New York cabaret-rock band My Brightest Diamond.
Sunday, Dec. 7: You have to pick between David Byrne at the Tennessee Theatre or Job for a Cowboy with Hate Eternal, All Shall Perish, Annotations of an Autopsy, and Animosity at the Valarium. (I'm probably going with Hate Eternal.)
EDIT: Sunday's decision might have just gotten easier for some of you. Hate Eternal singer/guitarist Erik Rutan was hospitalized last week for a kidney infection and the band won't be playing.
