Christmas Eve Party, with Arch Hooks

When: Fri., Dec. 24, 9 p.m.-12 a.m. 2010

If you've been even a semi-regular on the local live music scene for the past decade or more, chances are that you've heard Arch Hooks at some point. Wearing his signature sunglasses, no matter how dark the room might be, Hooks puts on a relentless show, usually nonstop for up to three hours, mixing his own material (he's done three CDs of original songs) with a wide variety of oldies, soul, blues, maybe some country, you name it. What's often overlooked about Hooks is that he's an awesome keyboardist, enough to intimidate anyone (like me) who has ever played organ and/or piano in a band. Church services aside, there's not much happening on Christmas Eve in Colorado Springs, but the hard-driving Hooks and his band will make up for that with a typical marathon, 9 to midnight tonight, at SouthSide Johnny's (528 S. Tejon St., 444-8487, no cover). Don't go with anyone expecting much conversation, either. Just sit back and listen. — Ralph Routon
