Post-holiday doldrums? Didn’t get what you wanted from Santa? Tired of Christmas music and/or your preening family? Icky Blossoms has the cure for those post-holiday blues. The band returns to The Waiting Room tonight, and I’m told they’ll be rolling out two new songs and possibly a third. Something tells me 2014 is going to be a big year for the Ickies. Joining them tonight is Saddle Creek’s latest signing, Twinsmith, and new kids on the block Routine Escorts. $8, 9 p.m.
