Music This Week Dec 23rd thru Dec 29th

Hey there,
Merry Christmas and all appropriate holiday greetings!!!
A light schedule of music this week but still some great shows.
I’ve posted all of the Strung Out Like the Lights at Christmastime fundraiser show and have most of this month’s backlog posted. I should have the rest up in a few days.
If you are still looking for a holiday gift, tickets for Dark Star Orchestra @ GATH on Feb 16th are available. Also on New Year’s Eve in Atlanta, The Revivalists are at Buckhead Theatre and The Motet are at Variety Playhouse.
I hope y’all have a safe and happy holiday.
