The leftovers are finally gone and the Christmas lights all over the place no longer cause us to grit our teeth. So what better way to celebrate the Season than with a double-bill of Hanukkah mayhem and irreverence tonight at Off Broadway? Kinky Friedman first and the Brothers Lazaroff-led Hullabaloo second. Tomorrow John Prine and Jason Isbell come to the Touhill, Tony Conrad brings the noise to White Flag Projects and beyond that it's the season for hunkering down with the hometown folks: Tempting local bills can be found at MoMoZoNe, The Heavy Anchor, El Lenador and the Schlafly Tap Room. Merry Whatever.
