Get holi-dazed with these upcoming seasonal live performances

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

It's the most wonderful time of the year, and not because you get to open presents on Christmas Day, and not because everything is pumpkin spice flavored (including Cheerios, which are awesome, by the way). But because these last weeks on the calendar tend to feature a unique offering of live music and theatrical performances that you won't get to see anywhere else. It doesn't matter if you've been naughty or nice, all you need is to buy a ticket and you're in.

Here are six shows to consider attending in late November and December:

DINA MARTINA
CHRISTMAS SHOW 2017
RE-BAR
November 24-December 31


You just never know what Dina Martina is going to do, but it's guaranteed to be wacky and hilarious and downright weird at times. She's a drag queen trainwreck on stage and that's why we love her, because she always marches to the beat of her own silly drum. So talented, the Seattle entertainer has now grown her audience outside of the Pacific Northwest, frequently packing theaters and clubs along both coasts, from Los Angeles and San Francisco to New York and Provincetown, and even across the pond in London. Her interpretations of songs like 'One Night in Bangkok,' 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia,' 'Looking Through the Eyes of Love' and 'Greatest Love of All' are well, interesting, to say the least, not to mention her quirky pronunciations and personal wardrobe (let's just say she has her own style). Dina Martina is legendary, not just in her own mind, but she is a holiday staple in the Emerald City that audiences have adored for many years. She'll give evening and matinee performances starting November 24, so go to www.dinamartina.com/calendar for specific dates and show times, as well as a link to purchase tickets.

A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS LIVE
PANTAGES THEATER (IN TACOMA)
November 30


Good grief, it's Charlie Brown live! The popular Peanuts character and his usual crew - Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Woodstock and Sally - are coming to Tacoma in person later this month. The stage production, adapted from the animated TV program that first aired over 50 years ago, follows the gang as they mount a play, save a tree and together discover the true meaning of Christmas. The live presentation will be accompanied by Vince Guaraldi's nostalgic score. For tickets, visit www.broadwaycenter.org.

CHRIS ISAAK
HOLIDAY TOUR 2017
MOORE THEATRE
December 3


I really don't care what Chris Isaak does for two hours, I just want to stare at him and drool. But the guy does play a mean guitar and he's got a damn good voice, so that makes his upcoming concert at the Moore Theatre even more interesting. The sexy singer-songwriter, who once dated Margaret Cho, scored a series of hits on the rock charts between 1990 and 1996, including 'Wicked Game,' 'San Francisco Days,' 'Somebody's Crying' and 'Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing,' to name a few. And he's no stranger to getting into the holiday spirit, releasing his own Christmas album in 2004 that featured a cover of 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' with Stevie Nicks. For his December concert, expect him to perform some seasonal tunes, but here's hoping he mixes in his own material. For tickets, go to www.stgpresents.org.

DECK THE HALL BALL
THE KILLERS, THE LUMINEERS, ODESZA, PORTUGAL.THE MAN, ETC.
KEY ARENA
December 5


This is one of the most eclectic lineups for Deck The Hall Ball, local radio station The End's annual holiday shindig, which is celebrating its 25th year this time around. I'm not sure you'll ever see alternative rockers The Killers and folk-pop darlings The Lumineers on the same ticket again, at least not in the Emerald City. Throw in two Northwest acts, Seattle electronic duo Odesza and Portland indie band Portugal.The Man, plus a few rising artists and you have the makings of a show that will certainly draw lots of little elves to Key Arena in early December. The Killers, who are promoting a new album titled Wonderful Wonderful, never disappoint as live performers; I've seen them a half dozen times, as recently as last year in their hometown of Las Vegas, and they always deliver the goods. For tickets, visit www.1077thend.com.

SEATTLE MEN'S CHORUS
A SASSY BRASSY HOLIDAY
BENAROYA HALL (Seattle)
plus Tacoma & Everett
December 9-23


Want some sass with that brass? The always-festive and always-great Seattle Men's Chorus is once again jingling those bells with an all-new holiday concert with scheduled performances in Seattle, Tacoma and Everett. Under the helm of Artistic Director Paul Caldwell, the 250+ ensemble will belt out classics such as 'Joy to the World' and 'Let It Snow,' in addition to the cheeky and cheerful 'Super Gay Christmas.' For the sixth consecutive year, the Chorus will be accepting non-perishable food donations at each show that will be donated to Lifelong's Holiday Food Drive, supporting those in our community living with chronic illnesses, like HIV/AIDS. Six concerts are planned for Seattle's Benaroya Hall, two at Tacoma's Rialto Theater and a single performance at the Historic Everett Theatre. For tickets to the Seattle and Tacoma shows, log onto www.seattlechoruses.org and for the Everett appearance go to www.BroadwayCenter.org.

SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK
CELEBRATING THE HOLYDAYS
DIMITRIOU'S JAZZ ALLEY
December 11-12


Praise the Lord, here comes Sweet Honey in the Rock! The African-American all-female group are bringing church to Dimitriou's Jazz Alley in mid-December, expected to perform a diverse collection of traditional American holiday spirituals, hymns and inspirational songs during back to back nights in downtown Seattle. The concert will feature soulful versions of 'Jesus, What a Wonderful Child,' 'Silent Night,' 'Let There Be Peace' and other seasonal favorites, in addition to perhaps a few gospel-inspired numbers. For reservations, log onto www.jazzalley.com.
