Venice, a group of folk-soul veterans, are putting a Christmas spin on their usual rock and roll. The concert will take place at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, which has frequently been regarded as one of San Diego’s best live music venues.

Venice’s iconic harmonies have led them to work with stars like Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, and Phil Collins, and their performance is bound to be incredible. Tickets are $22 in advance and $24 at the door; higher-end reserved loft seating is available for $39. This 21 and over concert starts at 8 p.m. on December 18th and is sure to delight casual fans and avid listeners alike. 

2. The Grinch in Balboa Park 

Balboa Park is hoping your heart will grow three sizes when you see this stage production of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Old Globe is bringing Dr. Seuss’ iconic Christmas characters The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who to life in this whimsical seasonal musical. The venue, which supports the advancement of American theater, has produced this stunning show for 22 years, so take part in the tradition and enjoy some of Christmastime’s favorite songs, like “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Santa For a Day.” Tickets are available for purchase online, so reserve your seats today. 

3. A Christmas Celebration with Jim Brickman 

On December 28th, join Jim Brickman at the Balboa Theatre for a family-friendly Christmas concert that is sure to become one of your household’s most cherished traditions.
