The Christmas slumber is officially over! The lights are back on at venues throughout the Bay Area as the countdown to New Year’s marches on. Warm up with a little Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The Yellow Dress @ Bottom of the Hill

Rocking “Spastic-Indie-Twee-Folk-Pop” songs in San Francisco since 2007. More info

Persephone’s Bee @ Hemlock Tavern

After 10 years in the Bay Area, the Phersephone Bee’s Packed up to try their luck in NYC. From the Band’s Bio: “Persephone’s is more like an elephant-sized beehive stuffed with Russ Meyers’ Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy, the poetry of Osip Mandelstam (“Persephone’s Bees” is a phrase from one of his works) and most importantly, life experience.” More Info

The Tubes feat. Fee Waybill @ Yoshi’s

San Francisco’s own classic 70s rock group hits the big stage at Yoshi’s with songs like “She’s a Beauty,” “White Punks on Dope,” and “Sushi Girl.” Let’s hope they keep the butt-less gold ensemble at home. More Info
