It’s been, like, two weeks since Halloween, so you know what that means: it’s time for Christmas music. For a rockabilly twist on the holiday classics, Brian Setzer is the guy. The former Stray Cats frontman brings his 19-piece orchestra to the Motor City to celebrate the 15th anniversary of its “Christmas Rocks! Tour.” Expect all the Christmas hits — “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Jingle Bells,” and “Here Comes Santa Claus,” etc. — all rendered in Setzer’s iconic retro style, along with a smattering of originals, too.
The Brian Setzer Orchestra performs on Sunday, Nov. 18 at the Fox Theatre, 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313presents.com; Doors at 7:30 p.m.; Tickets are $30+.
