THURSDAY 12/11

Fresh off a European tour, Nashville pop-punks Autovaughn headline at On the Rocks' regular night of live music, with Atlanta rockers Elevation in tow, 9:30 p.m., $5. At Trinity United Methodist, the River City Men's Chorus wraps up its seasonal revue, “Holiday!” with a free performance, 7 p.m. Who knew the demand for seeing sports-talk dudes — and other local celebrities — sing karaoke off key was so high? The Buzz Christmas Celebrity Karaoke sold out the cavernous Village in eight hours. Maybe there'll be scalpers, 7 p.m., $25 (proceeds benefit Youth Home). From Austin, Texas, Micky and the Motorcars play a rollicking brand of country familiar to fans of the Cross Canadian Ragweed, 9 p.m., $8. As usual, the Ted Ludwig Trio pulls double-duty, first playing an early gig at the Capital Bar, 5 p.m., free, before heading to Hillcrest for a set at the Afterthought, 8:30 p.m., $5. From Tulsa, Full Flava Kings blend slinky soul originals with covers that range from blues to reggae at the first of two nights at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5.

 

FRIDAY 12/12

The hugely popular '80s cover band Venus Mission is sure to pack 'em in at Sticky Fingerz, 10 p.m., $7. At Vino's, the American Princes' side project Magic Hassle shares a bill with local pop collective Bear Colony and dreamy pop experimentalists Captain and Company, from Clinton, Miss., 9 p.m., $6. They must've liked Juanita's: After coming through with Nada Surf a few weeks back, Cali's Delta Spirit brings its soul-inflected Americana back to the venue with a show that also features the Breakthrough and local pop-rock favorites Big Boots, 9 p.m., $7. Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Tonya Leeks leads a band at the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7. The Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio returns to the Capital Bar, 8 p.m., free, where they'll be Saturday, too.

 

SATURDAY 12/13

From noon to 3 p.m., White Water hosts “Breakfast, Books and Booze,” brunch and an independent book sale from Mary Chamberlain and her Tree of Knowledge non-profit, free. Later, it's blues power at Sticky Fingerz with Camden native Michael Burks, who's one of the most respected guitarists in blues today, 9 p.m., $10.  Revolution hosts uber-popular local cover act the Gettys, 9:30 p.m., $5.
