OKC live-music venues offer holiday escapes

You've made lists, stood in lines, unwrapped gifts and turkey-dined. Christmas is the season for giving, but even those who've been bad all year deserve a break. Get out of the house, forgo family festivities and stuff your live rock stocking with three offerings from Oklahoma music magi.

CHRISTMAS EVE
DJ Jeremy Dawson
8 p.m.
Electro Lounge
5929 N. May
843-8777
Join a pre-Christmas party featuring Shiny Toy Guns member DJ Jeremy Dawson, a local Okie who will deck the halls with a seasonal showcase of electronic dance-pop. Dawson moved to Shawnee from Texas, eventually joining fellow Oklahoman Chad Petree  in 1990s electronica duo Cloud2Ground. In 2001, the pair founded Shiny Toy Guns, a synth-pop
band that recorded several albums, including last year's Grammy-nominated "We Are Pilots." This evening's 8 p.m. performance is an early Christmas present courtesy of Electro Lounge's weekly "Robotic Wednesday" dance party.

CHRISTMAS EVENING
Hosty Duo
9 p.m.
VZD's
4200 N. Western
524-4203
You can't have a holiday without the Hosty. Singer/songwriter/kazoo player Mike Hosty and drummer Michael Byars headline their annual Christmas show 9 p.m. Thursday at VZD's. Bringing together Hosty's multi-instrumental talents with Byars' lockstep drumming, the duo has long staged wonderfully strange performances blending blues, classic rock and rockabilly. The duo's recently released "Mousetrap Sessions," a 15-song album of quirky, rootsy gems like "Little Teenie Tiny Thing," "Ain't No Lovin'" and "Pterodactyl," which boasts both English and Spanish versions.

CHRISTMAS RELIEF
Taddy Porter
10 p.m. Friday
51st St. Speakeasy
1114 N.W. 51st
463-0470
Stillwater rockers Taddy Porter journey to the metro, guiding hung over holiday-goers out of the seasonal slump with Southern-tinged classic rock. The gritty Oklahoma foursome " singer Andy Brewer, guitarist Joe Selby, drummer Doug Jones and bassist Kevin Jones " lays a solid rock groove with songs equal parts Kings of Leon and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band's "Monocle" is gritty relief, an eight-song album of old-school rock songs deftly written and deafening live. "Joe Wertz
