While many folks will be busy dealing with family histrionics and last-minute shopping this weekend, there's still plenty of things to do in the Twin Cities for free that don't involve sitting on a couch watching cable television.

For this holiday edition of Freeloader Friday we have rock shows, Christmas karaoke, and even a merry little burlesque show.

Come take a look and plan your weekend!
