TRASHY LITTLE X-MAS
Starting Nov. 26: Like the classic country songs they purvey year-round, Trailer Trash's annual "Trashy Little X-Mas" marathon never seems to grow old. The Twin Cities honky-tonk kings have a stocking full of original novelty songs ("I've Shopped Everywhere," "Santa's a Spy") to go with a bulging bag of covers and traditional holiday tunes, played in not-so-traditional and often rowdy ways. The ground zero for these shows is the zero-trendy Lee's Liquor Lounge. (9 p.m. Nov. 26 and Dec. 3, 10, 16, 17 and 23. $12. 101 N. Glenwood Av., Mpls.) The Trash men are also taking the show on the road in Minnesota with stops in Rockford on Nov. 23 (Billy's, 8060 Hwy. 55), the Rochester Civic Theater on Dec. 14 (7:30 p.m., $17.50-$22) and the Grand Theater in Northfield Dec. 15 (7 p.m., $8-$10). There's also a family-friendly matinee show at the Cedar Cultural Center on Dec. 18 (noon, $6-$12, 416 Cedar Av. S., Mpls.).
