Eric Himan is back in Texas!

We like Eric Himan as much as any Texan can like an Oklahoman — heck, even more than that! Our musician to the north will be visiting the Metroplex Friday for his Back in Texas Show. And the diversely talented performer, who does folk, rock, pop, from acoustic to electric, will be twanging out with songs from his country music catalogue. The performance is part of his new deluxe EP  and will even include some new songs in the mix.

DEETS:
1851 Club,
931 W. Division St., Arlington. 10 p.m.

Uptown Players does Christmas their way

Virtually since the inception of the company, Uptown Players has
held an annual fundraising revue when men sing songs written for women and vice versa … always appeared in the first half of the year. Not so in 2014! The usual Broadway Our Way show gets a holiday makeover as Christmas Our Way, expanding the catalogue of music available and putting a snowy tint on the popular show. B.J. Cleveland directs and co-hosts, alongside Marisa Diotalevi. Expect a jolly good show.

TWCD celebrates the Holidaze

Not all Christmas carols need to be solemn, or campy … or sing-songy, for that matter. How about some jazz? Gospel? Humor? Straight-up pop? Well, the Women’s Chorus of Dallas will feature all those genres in their concert titled Celebrate the Holidaze, which promises to be both hilarious and touching.

DEETS:
City Performance Hall,
2520 Flora St. 7 p.m.
