SERENADES AND SWEATERS: Spune Productions wins for first Christmas Sweater Contest of the season -- and for most seasonable indie-rock bill -- with A Spune Christmas at Hailey's. Hear Telegraph Canyon, Doug Burr, Glen Farris, and The Fox and the Bird among other winter-perfect groups with free tacos and wassail courtesy of Spune. Doors at 6PM Saturday; all ages with $5 cover for 21 and up and $7 for under.

PICKING UP SLACK: When Dallas' sound is hard to pin, it's Chris Holt we look to as the common thread through many of the most solid rock bands and musicians to have come out of the city: Salim Nourallah, for whom Holt plays guitar, Sorta, and Olospo, among others. Before Holt celebrates the release of The Deep End by his band The Slack in January, see him with the energetic Olospo and the New Bohemians at Sons of Herman Hall. Saturday, 9PM.

GLORY SOUNDS: Have you ever actually seen a performance of Handel's Messiah? The Chancel Choir of Highland Park Presbyterian Church and the Highland Park Orchestra make it easy to work the classic into your holiday traditions. Sunday at 6PM at the church.
