It is the third Friday of the month and you know what that means. If you don't, you should. After tonight, you will. Go to the Mink around 10pm and discover for yourself the entire hullabaloo surrounding A Fistful of Soul. Quickly gaining a reputation for being one of Houston's best dance nights, DJs King Ghidora, Bingo Rojo and No Fun play the finest (vinyl only) selections of ska, reggae, r&b and soul. This is a party, this is a disco and there will be lots of fooling around. As if you needed more of an incentive, there is no cover, $2 Lone Stars and $3 Red Stripes all night long. Dress sharp and dance like there is no tomorrow. The Mink 3718 Main @ Alabama.

If you are looking for something to do earlier in the night, search no further than Sound Exchange for CRASSMAS. Before you sew another Crass patch on your black skinny jeans and run out the door, this show is in no relation to the English punk band. Don't fret, punkers, because the lineup for the festivities is still oh so worthy. Local heartthrobs, The Wiggins, and Rapeworm will accompany VAARG in filling your heart and ears with yuletide joy. The show is free & BYOB. 8 pm, be there or be square. Sound Ex 1846 Richmond Ave.

Make sure to bring earplugs if you dare to venture out of the house on Saturday night.

Super Happy Fun Land will play host to Punxmas. The lineup includes: Blackmarket Syndicate, Molotov Compromise, Rats in the Attic, Ghost Stories, Riot Up Front, Exile, Night Siege, The Quarantines, Roots of Exile, Days n Daze, Deadlines, Comatose and Half Retarded. Try not to rip your leather jacket in the pit, kids. SHFL 3801 Polk Street.

At Walters, The Jonbenet and At All Cost will be playing their final shows EVER. O Pioneers!!! and Fight Pretty complete the lineup. Walters 4215 Washington Ave.

Suffering from seasonal depression? There is nothing a whole lot of black / death metal can’t cure. All in one night, all on one stage. Anti-Christ Mass II at #’s: Imprecation, Panteon, Abolishment, Scattered Remains, Ninth Kingdom, Diminished, Golgotha, Demoniac Vengeance, & Spectral Manifest. BE STILL MY BEATING HEART. $15. All Ages. Doors at 6 pm. #’s 300 Westheimer Rd.

Don't feel like headbanging? You want to drop it like it's hot? Put on your best pair of dancing shoes and head over to The Green Room for Autonomy. DJs Paramour and Mr. Castillo will play all your favorite unrelenting 80's classics and then some. No cover but 21+. Green Room / Warehouse Live 813 St. Emanuel.

Every Sunday is Shock Treatment at Rocbar. I've heard through the grapevine live bands perform and DJ Mohawk Steve spins punk & classic rock. I can kick myself for not braving the cold temps and rain for the Rusted Shut show. This week's live act is none other than Latch Key Kids. Rocbar 530 Texas Ave.

Be nice and don't forget to tip your bartenders!

Punk rock aficionados should take note that the Latch Key Kids/Roc Bar show has The Inanimate Objects on the bill who have a song on the venerable (though bootlegged) comp 'Bloodstains Across Texas'.
