PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND: CREOLE CHRISTMAS
8 p.m. Walton Arts Center. $20-$36.

Here's a great way to really kick off the holidays: Christmas tunes performed by The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. And hey, depending on what the weather's doing, it might be warm enough to seem like Christmas in New Orleans.

The PHJB was recently in Arkansas with the Del McCoury Band, and current band leader John Brunious actually stayed for a while in Conway after Hurricane Katrina.

There'll surely be many others, but according to the band's website, you can expect to hear the band's jazzy ragtime takes on "Blue Christmas," "Swinging in a Winter Wonderland," "Bells will be Ringing" and "The Dreidel Song."

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
