Houston Monster Jam

“Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year” be damned. It’s time for the Houston Monster Jam. The sound of crushing metal as Charlie Pauken’s Grave Digger® crashes into Chuck Werner’s El Toro Loco® will clear your mind of any lingering bits of “Auld Lang Syne,” guaranteed. More than a dozen trucks, each standing 12 feet tall, weighing 10,000 pounds and equipped with 1,500 horsepower, fly 30 feet in the air as they crash their way through a custom-designed obstacle track — and each other.

7 p.m. January 3, 17 and 31. NRG Stadium, 2510 Westridge. For information, call 800‑745‑3000 or visit ticketmaster.com.
Sat., Jan. 3, 7 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 17, 7 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 31, 7 p.m., 2015
