Get Loud and Proud at Harry Shearer's Holiday Sing-Along
by Ryan Sparks
Part-time New Orleanain Harry Shearer has a knack for being both socially conscious and sociable. While we are all proud of the work he’s done with his Katrina doc The Big Uneasy, sometimes we crave his attention to levity over the levees. 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.

James Booker was partial to wearing an eye patch and would often roll up to Jazz Fest in a Rolls Royce wearing his finest. But even those trappings couldn't top his flamboyance on the keys.
