If holiday music and its way-too-early assault on your ears has become too much, some local musicians offer respite. The Treehouse's 10th-annual '80s Power Ballads Night is a celebration of holiday cheer sans carols.

If holiday music and its way-too-early assault on your ears has become too much, some local musicians offer respite. The Treehouse's 10th-annual '80s Power Ballads Night is a celebration of holiday cheer sans carols. Rocking out to songs from an era all about the Aqua-Net and spandex will be a powerhouse lineup of Karate Coyote, The Vague, One Pretty Minute, Keith Jenkins & The Moving Parts, Rick Kinsinger, Tom Boyer, Pat Moore, Erika Carey, Poop House Reilly, Lydia Loveless and Go Robot Go. Funds raised from the event will go to the CD101 For the Kids charity. Don't forget about the kids! -Jesse Tigges
