Tullycraft, Seattle's twinkling twee-pop outfit, is headlining the Girls' annual holiday party, but a new collaboration of local musicians could steal the show—Rachel Flotard (fiery frontwoman of Visqueen) and Jon Rauhouse (of Neko Case's band) are teaming up with locals Bill Herzog (Jesse Sykes) and Mark Pickerel (Screaming Trees) for one night to play original and holiday tunes. John Roderick (of the Long Winters) and his beard (also of the Long Winters) will make an appearance as Saint Nick—you can sit on his lap for a photo, if you aren't too scared. (El Corazón, 109 Eastlake Ave E, 381-3094. 8 pm, $8, 21+.)
