Like a creature from one of its horror-punk songs, this band has never stayed dead for too long. Its original six-year run from 1977 to 1983 was notable enough for its fans to flock back more than a decade later when the group reformed. These days, bassist and lead vocalist Jerry Only is the current incarnation’s sole tie to the original outfit, but its theatrical punk-rock aesthetic has remained intact. Tue 7 p.m.

Join prolific local director Gavin Mayer in his production of this holiday classic. Watch as two army vets fall in love with a pair of showbiz sisters and work together to save their old commanding general's new career as an innkeeper. The title song may be the show’s (and one of the 20th century’s) most popular, but keep an ear out for the other tunes you may recognize from the Irving Berlin score, including “Sisters” and “Blue Skies.”  Tue, Thu-Fri 7:30 p.m.; Wed 1, 7:30 p.m.; Sat 2, 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2 p.m.

When your big brother is the late comic great Chris Farley, it's easy to be overshadowed—but Kevin Farley has made a name for himself all on his own. The stand-up comedian got his start in the 1998 Adam Sandler film The Waterboy and has since appeared in several movies and on television shows from That ’70s Show to Curb Your Enthusiasm. He currently hosts "Farley Bros Radio" on iTunes Radio with his other brother, John. Tue-Wed 7:30 p.m.; Fri-Sat 7:15, 9:45 p.m.

This 28-year-old's expressive tenor is perfectly suited for the soul and R&B tradition he's aligned himself with. The Washington native also has an enviable knack for knowing when to bring things down, when to make them funky, and when to really let loose. Sprinkled among this self-described "hippie with soul's" Motown tracks—in his rendition of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," for example—are acoustic reggae sounds that hint at his West Coast origins. Tue 8 p.m.
