Tis the season to be jolly, wear your skanking shoes and make pun-based songs. On the penultimate night before Xmas, the Manchester ska ensemble Baked A La Ska will be bringing all of the above to Band on the Wall as part of their Ska of Wonder Tour, showcasing their enviable collection of Christmas-themed covers and re-edits through the vibrant medium of horns and unrelenting rhythms. ‘Zat You, Santa Claus’, ‘When You Wish Upon A Ska’ and ‘Jingle Dread’ are among the numbers that could thaw the icicles from anyone’s wintry hips and flood the dancefloor with festive grooves.

Wed 23 Dec, Band on the Wall, 25 Swan Street, Manchester, M4 5JZ, Tel: 0161 834 1786, 8pm, £10-£12, www.bandonthewall.org
