The Berklee Performance Center presents A Holiday Doo Wop Celebration this Saturday at 8 p.m. starring Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, Earl "Speedo" Carrol and the Cadillacs, the Original Chantels, Frankie Ford, and Emil Stucchio and the Classics. I can hear my mother singing every other word to "16 Candles'' right now, humming the rest, all while stirring the sauce on the stove. What an opportunity to romance the soul of another with timeless songs. Tickets are $68.50, $56, $48.50, for reserved seating - you can purchase tickets for this show online through Ticketmaster.
And if that's not enough to encourage you to explore Berklee, look out for Aimee Mann's 2nd Annual Christmas Show with Very Special Guests on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. I will go on record right now to say that her version of the "Grinch'' is better than all others. Why tickets are this cheap I do not know, but they are $36.50 for reserved seating purchased through Ticketmaster as well.
