And the Band Plays On

Curt Kirkwood finds harmony in new project

Hang On, Snoopy

Concert celebrates Christmas

Thu 12/4
If Charlie Brown played Vegas, they'd bill him "Mr. Christmas" -- but lucky for us, tuxedos and pinkie rings aren't his zigzag style. At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, December 4, Chuck joins Al Jarreau, Melissa Manchester and Dave Benoit in A Concert for Christmas at downtown's Dodge Theatre. While the real live stars perform their greatest hits and holiday favorites, the Peanuts gang appears in classic footage on big screens above the stage, ushering in the holidays in the traditional way. Tickets start at $28 and are available at the Dodge Theatre box office, 400 West Washington, and through Ticketmaster, 480-784-4444 or www.ticketmaster.com. - Kim Toms

Big Fat Merry Deal

Mesa's Main event greets the season

Fri 12/5
The biggest holiday event in the East Valley happens Friday, December 5, from 5 to 9:30 p.m. -- and, yes, Santa will be attending. Mesa's Merry Main Street offers up not only personal visits with the cherry-cheeked man from 6 to 9 p.m. on the "Santa Stage," but also food and entertainment from a variety of cultures. Performances by salsa bands, pipe bands and bell ringers are among the featured events this year -- not to be outdone by the lighted costume contest, carolers and a gingerbread house contest. Kick off your holiday season at this free, comprehensive event; if you're lucky, it might even be cold. The event takes place in downtown Mesa, on Main Street between Country Club and Center. Call 480-644-EVENT or visit www.ci.mesa.az.us/calendar/merrymain for more information.- Maidi Terry
