Such a good flyer.

ISAAC ALEXANDER / LOCH NESS MONSTER / GRAND SERENADE
9 p.m., Vino's. $6.

And yet another seasonal excuse to spend time away from your family. As it does every year, local label Max Recordings bookends Christmas with at least two seasonal showcases. On Christmas Eve eve, the label puts forth three acts that have relatively recently put out new albums. A member/leader of bands like the Easys, Big Silver and the Boondogs, Isaac Alexander earlier this year released a classic study in contradictions, a lush pop album filled with somber themes. Live, he's likely to recruit familiar players from the local scene. In the fall, Loch Ness Monster released “Eleven Traditional Songs,” a sardonic, wildly experimental record that's likely to sound even more so live. Grand Serenade's latest, “Lean Times,” came out last year, but its soaring melodies and hook-y arrangements are ripe for rediscovery.
