When: Fri., Dec. 19, 8 p.m. 2014
Anthemic and guitar driven heavy pop act the Witches are always a blast live. And here with this holiday-time show at Smalls, you know they’ll be playing for all of their friends. The atmosphere will be clubby and cheery, to the extent that just by being there you’ll feel like you’re also everybody’s friend, even if you’re not. Don’t take it too far, though and jump onstage to sing along to that cover for the encore, OK? OK.
