A Few More Holiday Shows To Take Your Kids To That Won't Make You Want To Spike The Egg Nog

As teased yesterday on the blog, in today's paper, you'll find yourself a nice little piece written by noted family man Jesse Hughey on a couple family-friendly holiday shows you can proudly bring your kids to, without worrying that a) you might fall asleep, or b) that you're priming your child for a lifetime of crappy taste in music.

In the piece, Jesse mentions a couple upcoming shows in the area: one from Lisa Loeb, another from Gustafer Yellowgold. But dutiful journalist and caring father that Jesse is, he also wanted to give some shine to a few other shows. Unfortunately, we couldn't fit 'em all in the print edition. So, after the jump, a few more options--three of which actually feature kids rockin' out--to take in this week and next. Y'know, for all the olds out there. --Pete Freedman
