Classic City 12-Pack

It’s a chance to give back and get down at the Georgia Theatre Thursday night, when three groups of 12 local songwriters perform rotating solo and collaborative sets of original tunes and holiday favorites. Along with Dead Confederate’s T. Hardy Morris, who’s presenting the beer-themed show (call him Sudsy Santa), the list of performers includes local stalwarts Dave Marr, Don Chambers, Betsy Franck and Vaughn Lamb, as well as Thayer Sarrano and members of Futurebirds, Grand Vapids, Blue Blood, The District Attorneys and more. Admission to this shindig is free—as long as you arrive toting one unwrapped toy, which will be given to Toys for Tots. Just make sure it’s not, like, Silly Putty or something lame. 

8 p.m. FREE (w/ toy donation).
