Dec. 18: Dan Hicks at the Raven Theater

Do you travel religiously to Christmas Jug Band performances, only to be let down by the absence of your main man? Do you wear out your copy of Where’s the Money?, pining for the actual thing, live and in person? Do you desperately watch on constant repeat the McDonald’s commercial from the 1970s that features said main man and actual thing, Dan Hicks? (YouTube “Very old Big Mac 70’s commercial”; he’s at :09!) Well, your chance for a guaranteed appearance by Mr. Country-Swing Christmas is here, as Hicks himself brings his Christmas show, “Holidaze in Hicksville,” live and onstage. You’ll be sleighed by Hicks’ original tunes like “My Main Man Santa,” “A Yule That’s Cool” and “Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Christmas Card.” Pile on a preshow dinner of Big Macs, and you’ll be looking like Santa soon enough yourself! Hicks hos and hos and hos on Friday, Dec. 18, at the Raven Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 8pm. $25–$35. 707.433.6335.Gabe Meline
