Dec. 17: The Blind Boys of Alabama at the Uptown Theatre

With the Christmas shopping traffic, endless to-do lists and not-so-jolly family members, the holiday season can be a complete drag. But the worst aspect of the season is the inescapable droning Christmas music played on repeat everywhere from shopping malls to doctor’s offices. One dependable escape from the horrid holiday jingles, besides barricading yourself in the house for the winter season, is the Grammy award—winning album Go Tell It on the Mountain by the Blind Boys of Alabama, now into their eighth decade. Experience Christmas music done right on Saturday, Dec. 17, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $40. 707.259.0123.
