Annual White Trash Christmas Party at the Double Down Who needs midnight mass when you can drink juice called ass?

Andy Rourke at Crown The sun will go supernova before The Smiths reunite, so catch the seminal British band’s ex-bassist doing what he does these days: spin records (well, CDs and digital tracks). Expect a healthy does of the Manchester scene, along with all sorts of indie. Just don’t request hip-hop. “In the U.S., I get people asking me to play fucking Jay-Z, which I don’t have,” Rourke said last year. “And they get pissed off, as if you’re supposed to magic up a Jay-Z CD.” December 29, doors at 10 p.m., $10 locals, $20 nonlocals.
