Show Announcements: Bad Brains, Christmas Day at Trees With Hagfish, Robert Gomez, The Cult, All Time Low, Marc Ribot, Semi Precious Weapons, Harlem, Soft Pack, Rufio, The Riverboat Gamblers, Ugly Mus-tard, Chayanne, and more

Just because we're barely on the other side of the triple digit heatwave doesn't mean that it's too early to start thinking about Christmas, right? The folks over at Trees don't think so, at least. They've gone ahead and announced the first Christmas show of the year: A performance from legendary Dallas band Hagfish, who will be performing at Trees on Christmas day.

Ticket info hasn't been released yet, but Trees owner Clint Barlow doesn't think it'll be too steep.

"They aren't trying to make a lot of money," says Barlow. "They want to do it just to do it."

Over at the Granada Theater, punk innovators Bad Brains will be performing on Saturday, October 29 with their almost-original lineup. Tickets are on sale now for $29 (including fees) at the Granada's ticket website. Dallas bands Here Holy Spain and Leg Sweeper will open the show.
