    A Rock & Roll Christmas w/ JD McPherson, JP Harris

    Oklahoma’s retrofuturist R&B punk tours behind last month’s new holiday album, Socks. Behind 11 fresh Yuletide rockers, McPherson accomplished a lot, crafting warm, witty, air-tight originals. It results in an instant Christmas classic alongside A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector. You might even pull it out in July just to feel good.

      6LACK, Summer Walker, Deante Hitchcock

      Ricardo Valentine has quickly become one of the principal purveyors of trap soul, following hit single “Prblms” from his 2016 debut, Free 6lack. The Atlanta native, who once languished on Flo Rida’s International Music Group label, put the R&B world on notice in September with the magnificent East Atlanta Love Letter, which crested at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

      Solaris (1972)

      Signature Program: Russian filmmaker Tarkovsky's film was the original on which the Soderbergh/Clooney remake was based. It's a visually captivating and delirious tale of outer space and the supernatural.

      The Santaland Diaries

      Does it return? Of course it returns – this show is more evergreen than a forest of Christmas trees. David Sedaris' outlandish tale of a (oh, shall we say disgruntled) Macy’s elf jingles to life again in this latest incarnation, with that costumed Crumpet waxing snarktastic on the talent it takes to juggle tinsel, tearful tots, and not-so-sober Santas during what's hailed as the most wonderful time of the year. J. Robert Moore – the bright star of Zach's one-man show Buyer and Cellar a couple years ago – plays Crumpet, and Nat Miller directs, so we reckon this year's holiday-skewering is doubleplusgood to go. But does our reviewer think so, too?
      Through Dec. 30. Wed.-Thu., 7:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 6:30 & 9pm. $40 and up.
