Thursday we have Jinx Titanic and the Lady Killers.  After morphing from the porno punk of Super 8 Cum Shot into the muscle-bound smut rock of Jinx Titanic, Jinx gets all dressed up, puts on his dancing shoes, and explores a more playful, nostalgic side with his new band The Ladykillers.  The Joans, a band dedicated to emulating Joan Crawford opens along with the smooth sambas of Carpacho y Su Super Combo.

Friday we have The God, Sex, Death Variety Hour hosted by Danny Black kicking off at 6:30.  A night of storytelling and comedy based on the three most interesting themes in life always sets the audience alight with glee.

Later, fresh from a European tour we have Joan of Arc.  Jumping between mathy ballads, acoustic meanderings, minimalist experimentation, and post-rock-indie-epics, Joan Of Arc have exhibited a fearless artistry in their 14 years of existence.  Pinebender opens.

On Saturday, kicking off at 11am we have The Hideout’s Last Chance Holiday Sale!  The artisans this year include Soup & Bread, Rhymes with Twee, Rock Candy by Helen, Hidden Folk, Bloodshot Records and many many more!  We end right at 6 so come early and drink and shop!

Later we have Scott Lucas & the Married Men present the 4th Annual Hideout Holiday Music Hour. Continuing the tradition they started with a holiday show in 2010, Scott Lucas & the Married Men are aiming to emulate “A Prairie Home Companion” with the evening’s set and will structure the night as an old tyme radio variety show.  Chicago-based Purple Apple will open the show, crafting a setlist of chock full of fan favorites, holiday covers and new material.
