The Nine Shows of Christmas

There are six weeks until Christmas (seriously???), and My Spilt Milk wants to send you to nine shows between now and then. We’ve talked to our friends at the One Eyed Jacks, the Civic Theatre, the House of Blues, Chickie Wah Wah, Gasa Gasa, Tipitina’s and the Hi-Ho Lounge and lined up a pair of tickets for a show a week between now and Christmas, with three shows the week of December 6.
