Tonight, December 15: Christmas Cavalcade Fundraiser at Johnny D's

A great annual fundraiser happens tonight at Johnny D's, when some of the best local acts come together (for the 7th or 8th consecutive year) to raise money for the Somerville Homeless Coalition. As has become traditional, the Cavalcade is hosted by Chandler Travis, the pajama-clad writer/songsinger and self-proclaimed King of the World.

On the jam-packed bill tonight are folk star Livingston Taylor, Jen "Jenny Dee" D'Angora, bewigged punk snobs the Upper Crust, the Conolly/Conley Christmas Singers (with Clint Conley and Jeff Connolly); Merrie Amsterberg; Jennifer Kimball; Miriam; Factory Seconds; Alastair Moock; Greg Greenway; the Chandler Travis Philharmonic; the Philharmonic Trombone Shout Band; the Athol Thingerth; the Darlings; Shaun Wolf Wortis; Ramona Silver; Mike Dorval; Barrence Whitfield; Tallahassee, and possibly even more.

That's a pretty fantastic collection of talent, both local and national, from rock to folk to punk to soul to pretty much everything you can think of, all coming to gether to put on a great show for a great cause.

Admission is a suggested donation of $20, or whatever you can afford, whether more or less. At Johnny D's in Davis Square. 8:00. All ages.
