Dave Barnes, Drew Holcomb 

When: Wed., Dec. 1, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $14-18

Here's an interesting singer-songwriter pairing—velvet-voiced pop purveyor Dave Barnes and his countrified buddy Drew Holcomb. Dubbed "A Very Merry Neighborly Christmas" so as to combine the titles of Barnes' recently released Christmas album and Holcomb's 2007 nativity-themed disc, Barnes and Holcomb's sets will feature holiday classics both religious and secular, as well as nonseasonal selections from their respective catalogs. Though both songsters land a memorable line or catchy melody from time to time, they polish their generic arrangements with a commercial-friendly sheen, taking few risks to differentiate Barnes' blue-eyed acoustic soul or Holcomb's gentle folk-pop from the rest of the field. —Spencer Griffith
