[MUSIC] Thursday-Saturday, Dec. 20-22
Every winter, veteran Southern California rock act Social Distortion warms the southwestern U.S. with Mike Ness’ straight-no-chaser roots-rawk anthems, which remain as timeless as their subjects — primarily, love gone wrong and luck gone bad. Instead of pouting about it, though, Ness and his crew deliver those tales with guitar-charged gusto — and the sonic equivalent of 100 middle fingers. Opening acts vary each night. Dec. 20 and Dec. 21, 7 p.m., Dec. 22, 9 p.m.; House of Blues, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 632-7600, $30-$34.
