Sun. Dec 19, Christmas Jug Band
The Palms Playhouse, 7 p.m., $20
Winters, CA 95964
’Tis the season for a twisted yet talented group of Bay Area-based musicians, whose pedigree originates from such disparate acts as Commander Cody, Country Joe McDonald and Those Darn Accordions, to embark upon yet another regional tour. In their bag of tricks, campy Christmas songs aplenty, varying from “Santa As Seen on TV” to the family favorite “Santa Lost a Ho.” If you’ve never been to a Christmas Jug Band show, also expect loads of humor injected into even the holiday’s most popular tunes. For the better part of 20 years, CJB has delivered a good time and, of course, a reason to knock back a pint (or seven). 13 Main Street in Winters, www.christmasjugband.com.
