Are holiday musical favorites getting you down? Do you hate the holidays? Celebrate a punk rock Christmas with Margate’s the Shakers, a band that formed in 1994 and whose blend of punk and hardcore would have been an appropriate addition during the Warped Tour’s early years. The band’s latest effort, Good Enough, falls somewhere between a raspy Fenix TX and the Bouncing Souls and includes a lot of brawny punk tunes buzzing with major chords, rapid-fire drumming, and the gruff vocals of Pat Stahl, who sounds a little less abrasive than Rancid’s Matt Freeman. They’ll play alongside hardcore punk outfit Colorblind Cutthroats, Routine Scheme, No Class Action, and Belt Buckle Death Sentence Friday for Propaganda’s X-Mas Day Massacre event. Doors open at 8 p.m., and admission costs $5. Propaganda is located at 6 S. J St., Lake Worth. Visit thehoneycomb.com, or call 561-547-7273.
Fri., Dec. 25, 8 p.m., 2009
