To borrow a factual statement from the Beach Boys: Christmas comes this time each year! Which also means it’s time for the talented Dancer and Prancer, Seattle’s best December-only band! Consisting of five snappily dressed jingle babes bearing the gift of holiday surf-rock covers, Dancer and Prancer have been spreading winter joy for nearly seven years and have the art of Christmas down to a science. If you like snow, the Ventures, and/or dancing the night away, then grab a mistletoe-worthy someone and get to the Grotto—it’s the first day of winter, and you’re going to need some cheer. (Rendezvous Grotto, 2322 Second Ave, jewelboxtheater.com, 9 pm, $5, 21+)
