The end of December is full of music events in the Santa Cruz area that you won’t want to miss. “Winter Solstice” which includes Barbara Higbie, Liz Story, Lisa Lynne, George Tortorelli and Aryeh Frankfurter is a holiday music event at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center Friday, December 21st that will surely make you feel festive. Sunday, December 23rd, check out the sophisticated modern jazz duo The Le Boeuf Brothers at Don Quixote’s in Felton, followed by the guitar stylings of Peppino D’Agostino on Thursday December 27th. Finally, head down to the Rio Theatre on December 29th or 30th to see the White Album Ensemble perform The Beatles’ “Revolver” and “Let it Be” albums note-for-note. More Beatles for New Years Eve with The Sun Kings at Don Quixote’s starting at 9 pm.
A warning is in store for those of you who have warmed up to some new shows this quarter: it is finals week here at UCSC, so many of your favorite programmers may be taking of for winter break! What’s that mean? It means listen in this week to say your goodbyes, and for the weeks to come expect the old shows with a twist: new DJs! It’s pretty exciting to see how themes change when someone else takes over. Expect the unexpected, love the twisted new changes. If you’re feeling very into the holiday mood, remember: KZSC’s second webstream is playing nonstop holiday music!
All the best in finals and holiday travels!
