Seasonal Special Happenings

Holidaze in Hicksville With Dan Hicks

When: Thu., Dec. 9 2010

Together with his band, the Hot Licks, musician Dan Hicks has been laying down a reliably weird mix of swing, folk, jazz, and country music since the 1960s. So it's likely his Christmas concert Thursday night at the Kent Stage — Holidaze in Hicksville — will be more than a little off-center. That's certainly true of his newest CD, Crazy for Christmas, which includes sounds effects ranging from chipmunks to choo-choo trains, along with a scat-singing version of "Carol of the Bells." Then again, we wouldn't expect anything less from the guy who, backed up by the sexy female Lickettes, brought us swinging classics like "Where's the Money?" and "I Scare Myself." The holiday extravaganza kicks off at 8 p.m. at the Kent Stage, 175 East Main St. in Kent. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at kentstage.org. Call 330-677-5005 for more information. — Cicora
