There are a number of events and shows to check out in the Boston area be- fore leaving for winter break, or to come back to the city for, during the month-long hiatus from school.
If you’re looking for live music, the House of Blues (HOB) has a list of notable upcoming shows. Hip hop recording artist Travis Scott, who released his debut studio album “Rodeo” in September, will be headlining the venue located beside Fenway Park on Sunday, November 22. Tickets are still available for both shows that night at 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
Other popular artists playing the HOB next month are indie rock band The 1975 on December 3, Miley Cyrus on December 6, Kid Cudi on December 7, and Mac Miller on December 17.
The HOB is a terrific venue, offering general admission floor seating, mezzanine standing room, and upper mezzanine seating for fair prices. The venue also has a restaurant and bar inside, to those of age, a section for purchasing merchandise, and eccentric decorations all over the walls.
If you’re looking for a comedy show, the Wilbur Theatre, located on Tremont Street in Boston, has an upcoming lineup of performers that deserve attention.
Comedian and actor Mike Epps is performing two shows on November 27, while Australian comedian Jim Jeffries will be onstage for five shows from December 3 through the 5. Jim Gaffigan will also be bringing his talents to the Wilbur Theatre on December 11.
The Wilbur Theatre is a great place to spend the evening laughing. The theatre stage is small, but crowd space is abundant. There are tables on the floor to sit at and enjoy food or drinks with friends all night. Make sure to catch a show before it’s too late.
