The popular Santamania music-a-thon returns Dec. 13-15 to Northside Yacht Club (4227 Spring Grove Ave., Northside, northsideyachtclub.com). Other than the name and being timed to the holidays (and probably a few boozed up Kris Kringles running around the joint), the three-day fest isn’t explicitly a Christmas-themed event, but with nearly 100 acts performing on five stages it's like a three-day Christmas morning for local fans of Punk, Hardcore, Metal, Rock, Indie and more.

Among the many local acts performing throughout the long weekend (some touring/regional bands will also play): Tweens; The Harlequins; Vacation; Mr. Phylzzz; The Dopamines; Mr. Dibbs; Fleshmother, Newport Secret Six; Lung; Slutbomb; Cold Stereo; Casteless; Smut; Casino Warrior; Pout; Lashes; and Pop Empire.

Yacht Club co-founder (and DAAP Girls/Lions Rampant/Cincinnati Royals member) Stuart MacKenzie announced on Dec. 8 that there would be a special Lions Rampant/Cincinnati Royals combo performance at Santamania on Friday, Dec. 13.

Music begins at 4 p.m on Dec. 13 and 14 and 2 p.m. on Dec. 15. Cover charge is $10 each day.
