by Emma Boyce
Jazz up your holiday season with some much needed folly at the Contemporary Arts Center on December 18 and 19 for Judith Owen and Harry Shearer’s Holiday Sing-A-Long. If you’re already grunting ‘bah, humbug’ at the very idea of a sing-a-long, think again.

To that end, the annual installment of the Spinal Tap vet's Holiday Sing-Along at the Contemporary Arts Center on Sunday promises to wreck the silent night with belted-out classics and satirical sendups of your favorite (or most-tolerated) Christmas carols.
