Show Announcements: Brave Combo Family Christmas Bash, More

Denton's own Grammy-winning, Simpsons-appearing, Bob Dylan-inspiring, nuclear polka-creating Brave Combo will brave the elements 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, December 12, for an outdoor poolside performance at the Belmont Hotel.

But the real star of the Belmont and Smoke Family Christmas Bash will appear an hour earlier, when Santa Claus makes a 7 p.m. appearance. Tickets are $10 per person and free for children under 12.

The ever-busy Combo has several other local stops as well, including a gig at Scatt Jazz Lounge in Fort Worth Friday, a January 2 opening slot for The Gourds at The Granada and a January 15 Late Night At The DMA performance.
