The holiday are upon us. While I'm sure that for most of you out there that means warm and fuzzy memories of big meals and then Christmas trees and presents soon after, I'm not quite so jolly.

For me, this season means I have to pretend to be cheerful and that I'll be hearing a lot of bad music on the radio and in every freaking store I walk into (Sorry to all you Christmas music lovers. I just can't stand it). I could really do without all the jingle bells and decking the halls and what not. Call me a scrooge if you want, but before your ears are bombarded by songs about sleigh bells and snow, head out and get a heaping serving of live music. That's my cure for the holidays.

The Hold Fast Fables show Saturday at Float in Galveston looks pretty good. This Houston three piece folk, reggae band has been touring up and down the coast and are making a stop on the island. It's not everyday you get fiddles, three part vocal harmonies and reggae beats all mixed together. Check out some their music on the band's Facebook page: Hold Fast Fables.

Also on Saturday, you can get a double plat of great local music by checking out Matt Mejia opening for Robert Kuhn at the Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe at 9 p.m.
