The magical thing about Christmas falling on a Monday is that you can choose to rage all weekend beforehand and still have an entire day left over to decompress or rewind to do it all over again before the new year. Assuming that you’ve finished all that pesky holiday shopping (you remembered to order Dad’s new life-sized Han Solo carbonite chamber, right?), we’ve compiled a list of shows around town for you to crash this Friday and Saturday, proving rock and roll stops for nothing and no one -- not even spiked eggnog or your grandma's apple pie.

X-Mas in Hell at Koto in Salem
Salem sure as hell doesn’t shut down after October 31. Over on the North Shore, Japanese restaurant and rock club Koto hosts their eighth annual “X-Mas in Hell” show on Friday (December 22) for those partiers who prefer Halloween and heavy metal to holiday cheer and carols. No Hero makes their return to the scene Friday night alongside synth-rock outfit Big Time Kill, The Walking Dead-themed punks The Negans, and metal group Devlyn Sydus.
