Dance holiday style with the Christmas Jug Band Sat., Dec 15 at 8:00 p.m. at Raven Performing Arts Theater at 114 North Street. An irreverent crew of stalwart purveyors of the jugabilly mystique, the Christmas Jug Band is a seasonal assemblage of misfits of Commander Cody alumni and others from various notable Bay Area musical aggregations. What got started from a Wild Turkey-inspired momentary lapse of sanity is now, four albums and 30 years of fruitcakes later, an unconventional holiday tradition of highly skewed merriment. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for 17 & under. For information: contact the Raven Theater at 707-433-6335
