San Marcos Tonight 12/7/13

A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.


Tonight’s Best Bet

The inimitable James McMurtry (pictured) will be at Cheatham Street Warehouse tonight with his songs of loss, sorrow and stories. He’s a don’t-miss artist not only for his songwriting but for his prowess on the guitar. His bittersweet work is both riveting and unforgettable. Sights and Sounds of Christmas closes out tonight with the jolly red-clad ho-ho-ho guy coming by boat. Tonight’s performances include the San Marcos High School Orchestra and the Chubby Knuckle Choir, just to mention a few. At Taxi’s Pianobar the comedians will “roast”  old St. Nick and Wake the Dead features the awesome talent of Eric Sommer. It’s a great night for fun and music in San Marcos.
