KEVIN KERBY AND BATTERY / THE REDS9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.
It's the holidays. Or close enough that its time for local power bills. Friends are home from distant cities. Everyone stopped working (or at least, you know, working). So look out for big crowds and mass drunkenness. Supplying the soundtrack: prolific local singer/songwriter Kevin Kerby
previews songs from his forthcoming album with his band Battery, which, lately, is Geoff Curran (guitars), Joshua Bentley (bass) and Marcus Lowe (drums). The Reds
, who last year released an excellent debut album, “Economy of Motion,” have played out far less frequently this year. They have jobs and babies. So treasure their spare, but hook-heavy new wave. Also on the bill, the little heard trio Drunken Angels
, made up of Last Chance Records head honcho Travis Hill, Mikey Hayes and Tracy Sanchez, all of whom play guitar and sing a little.
