Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets 

When: Wed., Dec. 2, 8 p.m. 2015
Phone: 919-660-3357
Price: $10-$48




If you haven't been paying attention for the last decade or two, Nick Lowe—the man who helped put power pop, punk and new wave on the map in the '70s—shifted to acoustic crooner mode in the '90s. Don't expect him to live up to his old "Basher" nickname by pounding out "Heart of the City." But as part of his bid to become the Andy Williams of pub-rock pioneers, Lowe has mounted an honest-to-God Christmas show, the Quality Holiday Revue tour, based on his 2013 album, Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection for All the Family. On that album, eccentric Nashville rockers Los Straitjackets joined him; they accompany him here, too, as he delivers classic Christmas songs, original tunes tailor-made for the occasion and covers by esteemed peers. The fact that Los Straitjackets are, as always, outfitted with Mexican wrestling masks doesn't exactly put a damper on the entertainment factor, either. 8 p.m., $10$48, 125 Science Drive, Durham, 919-684-4444, —Jim Allen
