Every year for the past several, Mike Marshall of MnM Presents throws a party on Christmas Day and invites fans of the shows he produces at venues like Soundlab, the Town Ballroom and Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar, among others -- to bail on their families for the evening of Dec. 25, and get down!
"The Christmas Party" finds Marshall offering a hearty thanks to his base with a dance-fueled, light show-soaked soiree, taking over three rooms in the Pearl Street Grill & Brewery (76 Pearl St.) and cramming them full of live music and daring DJs from 10 p.m. till the wee small hours.
This year has been the biggest yet for Marshall, and so it follows that the holiday shindig would have grown in equal proportion. It has. Scheduled to appear are Ryan Liddell & 3PO, Hoogs, Tweeknasty, Joe Jubei, Steve Kream, Jesse Aaron, Brandon Chase, Big Basha, Bvllets, Twist & Bacon!, DJ Universal, Brother Bear, Medison and Paul Kuenzi.
The whole shebang will cost you $10 at the door, which includes all the music and an open bar from 10 to 11 p.m. Learn more through MnMpresents.com.
