The holiday season is a time to return home, see some friends, and revel in each other's company in the spirit of the times. With that in mind, Manic Productions' weekly free concert series at BAR has booked an all-hometown line-up of New Haven bands, so we all can hang with our peers, give out high-fives, and guzzle down some cheap beer. Milksop:Unsung, a bluegrass quartet with a twist, kick things off on Dec. 26. Following them are our very own Fake Babies, who will be sure to make a buncha noise and get us all grooving, hopefully starting to work off all those cookies and egg nog.
Fake Babies, with Milksop:Unsung
Dec. 26, 9 p.m., Free, BAR, 254 Crown St., New Haven, (203) 495-8924, manicproductions.org.
