December 21. With band members named Mike Trash (vocals, guitar), Billy Beer (bass), and Johnny Riott (drums), you can guess what you’re in for: sleazy glam-punk that harkens back to Hanoi Rocks. Presently pumping their fourth album, Boulevard of Choking Screams, Albany-area trio the Erotics once again drop the holiday cheer on Valentine’s Music Hall
. This year, the threesome brings along its hard-rocking Capital Region pals Midnight Mob, the Blisterz, Mordwolf, and Black Cat Elliot. (Break Science and Michal Menert visit December 7; Small Axe grinds December 8.) 8pm. Call for ticket prices. Albany. (518) 432-6572.
