100 Monkeys at Bou n' Thibs
From the City of Angels comes 100 Monkeys, a band described by as "funk rock" and by Rolling as "tribal sounds with vocals recalling Jim Morrison's baritone croon." 100 Monkeys, however, jest that their music is purely "onomatopoetic, but for the sake of simplicity, we'll call it funky rock-n-roll." Catch them tonight November 23rd and the 30th at Boudreaux & Thibodeaux's.

Holiday Music Magic
Two new Holiday shows starting this weekend at LASM. On Friday, Season of Light recounts the religious and cultural rituals historically practiced throughout the world during the winter solstice. It also explores winter constellations and possible astronomical explanations for the biblical star over Bethlehem, as well as lighthearted seasonal traditions such as kissing under mistletoe. On Saturday is Holiday Music Magic. Families will enjoy seasonal songs from Mannheim Steamroller, Burl Ives, Brenda Lee, the London Symphony, and others, visually choreographed with 3-D animation and fulldome holiday-related scenery. May be viewed by children three years of age and under. Check their website for show times.

Largely Ironic Karaoke at Red Star
Spill everything you've got on the mic for the enjoyment of your friends, fans, fellow karaoke'ers. The point isn't to sound good, it is to sound pathetic. So come on down every Wednesday at 8PM to the Red Star and sing like the rest of the sappy, drunken, lonely karaoke'ers.

Thanksgiving Family Weekend at the Saturday Market
This On Saturday the Fresh from the Market cooking show will demonstrate an after Thanksgiving weekend menu with local ingredients from the TASTE of the Market.
